The question is NOT whether Barr could read 300 pages and write a letter in 2 days.
For lawyers, historians & many others, that's our regular day job.
It's the opposite problem: He easily could have written _more_.
Why is his letter so short?
Why no Mueller executive summary?
2/ Walsh's Iran-Contra Report and the Starr Report included a 1-page introduction or executive summary:
1) Written concisely, raising no exec privilege or national security concerns.
2) Presented damning conclusions.
My guess is Barr held back the summary because of point #2.
3/ Barr said his letter was to summarize the Mueller report.
Mueller surely summarized his own report at the top, and without including privileged material.
If the executive summary were not damning, then Barr would have included it.
Release the executive summary immediately.

Shocker: Bill Barr—appointed AG after giving Trump a 19-page memo saying Trump didn't obstruct justice—just exonerated Trump of obstruction of justice. Mueller specifically said "this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him"
Mueller couldn't establish corrupt intent for obstruction of justice b/c Trump refused to talk w/ investigators. W/o putting Trump under oath, Barr exonerates him. Barr was put in charge of DOJ to salvage the GOP—even if it meant letting Trump get away with everything. Shameful.
.@JeffreyToobin points out the impropriety of AG Barr concluding no obstruction of justice when the whole point of appointing a special counsel was b/c Trump’s political appointees—like AG—have an inherent conflict of interest. And now we see, AG Barr is indeed Trump’s lackey.

AG Barr letter to Congress summarizing Special Counsel Mueller’s report.
#ReleaseMuellerReport 🇺🇸
Mueller would have indicted for obstruction if allowed.
Four weeks now sources saying fighting between Barr and Mueller.
Barr is not being transparent here. Will be months before the public learns more, unless high level leaks. #ReleaseTheMuellerReport
