Hollywood Stars Downplay Barr’s Summary of Mueller Russia Probe: ‘Only the Full Report Matters’

The Wrap Sunday, 24 March 2019
While many of Donald Trump’s biggest critics in Hollywood have yet to respond to Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Robert Mueller investigation, Rosie O’Donnell best summarized the early reaction: demand for the full report’s release.

“The summary is irrelevant,” O’Donnell wrote in a brief tweet. “Only the full report matters.”

In Barr’s official summary sent to Congress, it was reported that Mueller’s investigation found no evidence that Donald Trump or his presidential campaign conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election. But on the matter of obstruction of justice charges, Barr wrote that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Despite this, Barr wrote that the Department of Justice concluded that the evidence Mueller found was “not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” That decision not to press on charges has been met with skepticism by Trump’s critics.

“If William Barr summarized Romeo and Juliet, he’d probably say that Romeo murdered Juliet’s cousin, was banished for it, and is now dead,” tweeted George Takei. “Let’s wait to hear the full story.”

In response to the summary, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler said that Barr would be called on to testify before Congress “in light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report.”

Amid the demands for access to the report and investigation material, one of Trump’s staunchest supporters, James Woods, posted a GIF of a man jumping off a bridge with the caption “Democrats react to Mueller report the way they accepted the 2016 election…”

The Trump Administration also called the report a “total and complete exoneration” of the president. But actress Alyssa Milano posed a question about the report:

“Well, if there was nothing in the report why won’t they just release it?” she tweeted. “If the report fully exonerated him or his family, he’d have it all out in seconds. Wouldn’t he?”
