Former President Donald Trump's narrative about the Russia investigation is to call it a hoax. We can also thank former Attorney General Bill Barr for distorting the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller during his investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

We've never seen the full report, and the Trump administration was far from transparent. Since the twice impeached one-term President is now under investigation for espionage after he withheld highly sensitive documents that didn't belong to his stupid ass, this would be a perfect time to see the entire Mueller report.

Because he doesn't get to call it a hoax if we haven't been allowed to see all of it, so now, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is going to make public the secret memo Barr used to undercut the Mueller Report to claim that it was insufficient to find Trump obstructed justice.

Well, lookie here:

Via The Hill:

The DOJ, responding to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking disclosure of the memo, argued that virtually the entire memorandum and related records should be shielded under a FOIA exemption that protects internal government deliberations.

But the D.C. Circuit Court panel on Friday, affirming the lower court’s decision, ruled that the DOJ had failed to prove that the so-called deliberative-process privilege justified keeping

What she said:

Everything always comes out in the wash. It's taking a while, but we're getting there. Trump is not going to take this news well. I can picture ketchup being thrown all over the walls of his Mar-a-Lago resort. Meanwhile, Melania should stay away from the staircase.
