Russiagate Forever: DOJ Considers Releasing ‘Alternative’ Mueller Report

Haven’t we had enough already?

It has been years since the Democratic Party began hanging their hat on the “RussiaGate” ruse, and, despite the bombshells that have emerged from John Durham’s investigation into the political malarky, some are still very much convinced in its truth.

But, again, it pays to remind us all that Donald Trump was never charged with a crime.  Not after 22 months and $25 million.  Not after full weight of the federal government laid upon him.  Never.

Still, the rumors persist, and it appears as though the DOJ is considering delving back into the fray.

An unpublished investigative compilation sometimes referred to as the “Alternative Mueller Report” has been located in Justice Department files and could be released soon,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.”

And then…

The reference prompted the New York Times to submit a Freedom of Information Act request for the document in January and to follow up in July with a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

Lawyers from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan told Judge Katherine Polk Failla in a letter Thursday that officials have figured out what document Weissmann was alluding to and have begun reviewing it for possible release.

“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.”

This particular document came from the subgroup of investigators who were specifically focused on Paul Manafort, and there is no telling if other teams compiled similar reports.
