In the same way that previous leaks from this administration have always successfully incentivized Trump to tell the truth, right?

Maybe Barr will redact a bunch of important stuff. I hope he does, it will be hilarious when the dacted report gets leaked to show what a bad faith job he did. Barr just doesn't strike me as a total moron so I doubt he will choose this course of action.

No, of course not. There's a wide range of golfers depending where/when you play, and I find it a relaxing/fun activity to play and I get why people think it's boring to watch, but I guess once you play it, it's not.

It's almost like the constant gaslighting is having an impact on the weak-minded and those who are otherwise susceptible.

Itíll take some big disaster to wake people up. If the economy were bad thereíd be riots in the streets (iíd hope). Thatís what really saddens me about this country. The awvals of the world being totally okay genociding some browns as long as they get a few extra bucks a paycheck. Or the insoís of the world that seem to take genuine delight in it as long as it upsets the soyboy cucks. It seriously makes me nauseous to think about the scope of it and how many genuinely ****ty people exist in this country.

So, sorry. Itíll hopefully just be a month or two but I honestly donít know.

In closing, get ****ed awval and inso and anyone else that voted for this clown. Burn in hell forever and I truly mean it.

Redacting and releasing the report of one of the highest profile investigations in the history of the country seems to have a substantially different set of incentives. Particularly when many of the investigators who contributed to the report have every reason to hate Trump and could surely release dacted versions of the report if Barr redacts it inappropriately.

He who is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.

Guess what, largely the same set of incentives is in effect here.

Look at all the consequences Trump has faced for repeatedly lying to the public.

It's not about consequences anyone might face. The question is why Barr would release an inappropriately redacted version of the report when the likely result of that would be Mueller or his team leaking the inappropriately redacted parts. Why would Mueller and his team just sit by and let their work be misrepresented? It makes no sense.

Because he is a partisan hack POS who knows, as you do despite your raised by wolves gaslighting, that the media will thoughtlessly roll with whatever nonsense he leads with, giving Team Trump a massive PR head start and corresponding congressional immunity.

Barr thinks the socialists, aka the Vietcong aka Bernie Sanders are coming to make us push around wheelbarrows full of useless inflated $100 bills to buy bread while women are being raped and men robbed at knife-point. It's not about him looking bad, Jesus Christ created the divine sperm and egg to make him AG for this very moment to help his team win and save the USA. He would jump on a grenade.

This.

1. Barr releases a letter misrepresenting the report, but it creates headlines that Trump has been exonerated. Congressional Republicans can always fall back on this.

2. Barr delays the release of more info for as long as possible.

(We're here now.)

3. Barr releases something heavily redacted, and the public still doesn't have a clear picture. We're hit over the head again with #1.

4. Dems subpoena, it goes to court, etc... Trump hits them over the head with #1 and calls this a partisan witch hunt, etc, etc.

5. It doesn't matter what #5 is. If it doesn't come out, Trump wins. If it comes out, the narrative of #1 has already played for so long that the entire right wing base and a good chunk of low information infrequent voters (who need to be turned into angry voters to hold these people accountable) will already be treating the "totally exonerated" storyline as total fact. Congressional Republicans can fall back on that and protect Trump, and they will. Nothing matters.

Nothing matters.

Barr and Trump already won, it's just a matter of how it plays out from here and whether Dems can win in 2020. That's the only way Trump is getting removed from office. Even that's not 100% to remove him at this point, but that's (hopefully not) a problem for January of 2021.
