The Washington Post reports:
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter in late March complaining to Attorney General William P. Barr that a four-page memo to Congress describing the principal conclusions of the investigation into President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of Mueller’s work, according to a copy of the letter reviewed Tuesday by The Washington Post.
At the time the letter was sent on March 27, Barr had announced that Mueller had not found a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian officials seeking to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Barr also said Mueller had not reached a conclusion about whether Trump had tried to obstruct justice, but Barr reviewed the evidence and found it insufficient to support such a charge.
BREAKING: Mueller told Bill Barr that Barr’s depiction of his findings failed to capture ‘context, nature, and substance’ of the special counsel investigation. This was after Barr’s letter to Congress describing Mueller’s principal conclusions. Story TKhttps://t.co/6mUvcx5lNk

Finally, Mueller has something to say. And it’s not good for Trump or Bill Barr. It looks like Attorney General William Barr purposefully misrepresented the Mueller Report in order to give cover for Trump. Barr should step down and resign immediately. https://t.co/p8wjSUiJNI
