As someone who has defended Bob Mueller’s integrity from the start, I’ve thought about this a lot. Just as it was emphatically not James Comey’s business to hold a solo news conference to announce why he did not seek to indict Hillary, Mueller should learn from that mistake.
It is not the FBI’s job and not the independent cousel’s job to shield, protect or otherwise do the job of the Attorney General. Obama’s AG should have decided whether or not to indict Hillary and then handled the consequences.
The new AG, William Barr, doesn’t have the baggage of being part of the investigation. It will be a test of his independence & judgment. But that’s the job. I hope he discloses as much as possible, recognizing parts of this are a counter-intell probe that typically remain secret.
The nation needs a fair, credible, public and independent understanding of whether collusion took place - or not. It is the Justice Department’s job to deliver it.
A joint announcement with Mueller explaining the facts and Barr explaining what - if anything - happens next would be the best way to handle this. The more disclosure the better. Mueller still has a public role to play. So too does the AG.
