According to a new court filing, an “alternative” Mueller (Weissmann) report was located in Justice Department files and the feds may release it soon to further harass Trump.
Mueller’s top Deputy Andrew Weissmann referenced this ‘alternative’ report in a book he published last year prompting the New York Times to submit a FOIA request.
The Mueller report released in spring 2019 was a total dud for the left.
After two years, Mueller’s investigation did not establish any members of Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with the Kremlin.
It is unclear if or when the DOJ could release Weissmann’s summary report.
An unpublished investigative compilation sometimes referred to as the “Alternative Mueller Report” has been located in Justice Department files and could be released soon, according to a letter filed in federal court Thursday.
A top deputy to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, revealed in a book he published last year that the team he headed prepared a summary of all its work — apparently including details not contained in the final report made public in 2019.
“At least for posterity, I had all the [team] members … write up an internal report memorializing everything we found, our conclusions, and the limitations on the investigation, and provided it to the other team leaders as well as had it maintained in our files,” wrote Weissmann in “Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation.”
“Since Plaintiff filed its complaint, Defendant has located and begun processing this record and intends to release all non-exempt portions to Plaintiff once processing is complete,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Jude wrote. “Defendant estimates that primary processing of the record will be complete by the end of January 2022 at which time Defendant expects to send the record to several other DOJ components for consultation.”
JUST IN: Feds locate ‘alternative’ Mueller report mentioned by Andrew Weissmann in his book. Parts of the compendium could go public soon. First review should be done next month, feds say https://t.co/KSHb6MM2yq #FOIA
