Textbook example of lessons unlearned in this two-year media fiasco. @AriMelber's throwing out a truism which, devoid of context, implies that something rotten is afoot. Ari knows - I watched two guests tell him to his face - that congress rewrote the rules for special...
...counsels in July 1999. As Ari knows, the prior Independent Counsel/Special Prosecutor regulations mandated a report be provided directly to congress - hence the prior referral of findings to *Congress* of which he tweets. The 1999 Special Counsel regulation removed that...
...reporting requirement entirely and changed it to the mandated provision of a confidential report to the AG, who - by regulation - must submit a summary of findings/declinations and reasoning to congress, then do with it whatever he decides is appropriate. So, yes - Ari is...
...technically correct, but wildly misleading. Mueller didn't submit his report to congress because Mueller isn't allowed to submit his report to congress. Barr has checked all the notification boxes and is currently at the "in the public interest" stage of deliberation and...
...scrubbing for grand jury or classified info, which he cannot, by law, release to the public. Congress will get every word the law allows, as will the public. What Ari is doing is purposely clouding the issue to amplify conflict that doesn't exist. Which is how we got into...
...this situation in the first place.
