Mueller Report Thread
OK, time for a prediction.
The Mueller report is going to be redacted of certain information, which falls into any of 4 categories:
- Grand Jury material regarding anyone not charged.
- Sources and Methods related to intelligence gathering.
- Information related to ongoing investigations.
- Information that could infringe on the privacy and reputation of “peripheral third parties".
Here's where I think things will get interesting...
Barr is going to be pretty scrupulous about protecting the information that SHOULD be protected, but he's also going to want to redact as little as possible, which is going to set up an epic Easter Egg hunt.
The report is going to contain a huge amount of meta-data and it is this information that will create the next big shitstorm in the ongoing saga of the "Orange Man Bad" show.
You see, that meta-data will be subjected to forensic analysis by pretty much everyone on the left and they WILL find some unknown percentage of the information that was supposed to be private.And then they'll release it.
That's not my prediction. THIS IS my prediction...
THAT will be where the backlash begins. Or rather, the consequences of the information release will be the trigger.
How the backlash plays out I can't say, but if experience has taught me anything, there is ALWAYS a point at which the general public says; "Will you shut the fuck up already!?"
