The Mueller report is not going to be what is presented to the DoJ, or especially whatever it is of that that the AG decides to make public or even available to congress.
The Mueller report is going to be written in indictments and plea agreements and sentencing filings and in court transcripts on the rare occassions when these things will go to trial.
At least that will be the case until either 2021 or 2025.
DoJ guidelines proscribe the DoJ from talking about unindicted individuals, with good reason. Indeed, this was the rationale that Rosenstein used to help Trump fire Comey, that Comey violated that guideline in a very big way by talking about the FBI findings in the Clinton case, who was at that time, and still is, unindicted.
Whatever Barr lets through, I am confident he’ll suppress not only intelligence-related content, but anything to do with unindicted individuals, or obscure that content so as to be meaningless.
I assume that the guidance regarding unindicted individuals would apply to individuals under sealed indictment.
That means that the 16 sealed indictments in the DC courthouse that may relate to this case will be either not discussed, or not released by Barr.
The report that goes to Barr and whatever parts of that that gets made public will, indeed, be disappointing, because Barr has already stated that he will follow guidelines to the letter. Which means likely suppressing content related to unindicted individuals.
The report will, indeed, be disappointing to a great many people.
We’ll see the content eventually, just not in the format most folks expected.
