For example, go ahead and crap on #WilliamBarr if you like, but we do not know that he has not characterized the report correctly BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT YET SEEN IT.
My friends on the left take the absence of a condemnation of Trump in the letter as evidence of more corruption. And surely, even though we have been repeatedly warned that removing the President has perils, somehow waiting to defeat him in an election seems intolerable.
