SCOOP by @nytmike @npfandos @MarkMazzettiNYT: Some of Mueller’s investigators say that Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry, which were more troubling for Trump than Barr indicated.
cc: @Delavegalaw @page88 #Maddow
"Some Mueller team members are concerned that, because Barr created the first [completely BS] narrative of their findings, Americans’ views will have hardened before the investigation’s conclusions become public." Which is EACTLY what Barr intends.
Former federal prosecutor @JonFlan: Knowing the way Mueller works, he likely wrote his own an executive summary and conclusions. For some reason [we know the reason], Barr didn’t release it and opted for a White House “press release” instead.
"Special counsel’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the [Mueller] report, and some team members believe that Barr should have included more of their material in the four-page letter he wrote laying out their main conclusions." #CoverUpGeneralBarr #Maddow
The weekend Barr read Mueller's 400+ page report and concocted his misleading summary, he and Rosenstein were cloistered inside the Justice Dept debating how to present the Mueller report's findings. *Mueller did not participate in the process.*
NEW: Mueller team members say evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant, “much more acute than Barr suggested.” And that the report summaries they had prepared were to be made public,
by @nakashimae @CarolLeonnig @PostRoz #Maddow…
The report was prepared “so that the front matter from each section could have been released immediately with minimum redactions, if any. The work would have spoken for itself.” Mueller’s team assumed the info would be made available to the public.
THIS ●➤ “Mueller team members say evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming & significant, much more acute than Barr suggested. There was immediate displeasure from the team when they saw how Barr characterized their work instead.”

They are pissed. Barr is going down.
“Mueller’s team assumed the information was going to be made available to the public and so they prepared their summaries to be shared in their own words — and not in the attorney general’s summary of their work, as turned out to be the case.”
