Napolitano is saying the Mueller report is 700 pages long. Reporters trying to get it confirmed

Last edited Wed Mar 27, 2019, 06:37 PM - Edit history (1)




I tried to see if I could confirm both the 700 page estimate of the length of the Mueller report and the 2 million page estimate of the volume of raw evidence that Judge Napolitano repeatedly offers in his comments here.

"We'll decline to comment, thanks," Peter Carr says.



Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Cavuto Coast to Coast Wednesday, Napolitano attempted to explain exactly where Schiff was coming from by getting inside his “head.”

“We saw on Sunday a four-page summary of a 700-page report,” the Fox analyst said. “The 700-page report is a summary of two million pages of documents, of raw evidence.

He continued: “In the 700-page summary of the two million pages of raw evidence, there is undoubtedly some evidence of a conspiracy and some evidence of obstruction of justice, just not enough evidence—I’m thinking the way I believe Congressman Schiff is thinking—according to Attorney General Barr, not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the standard.”

Napolitano went on to note that if “there were no evidence of conspiracy and no evidence of obstruction, the attorney general would have told us so,” adding that Barr didn’t, so “there is something there” that Democrats and Trump opponents want to see. And they’ll have a “field day” with it.

Just as Napolitano says here, there is tons of evidence...just not enough for an indictment of the President, which, they don't believe a President can be indicted anyways so no matter how much evidence there is it wouldn't be enough for something to happen that Barr doesn't believe should happen.

That doesn't mean there isn't enough evidence to impeach, which is a completely different question, than if there is enough for him to be criminally charged.

in one day? And then have time to write his "report"? This isn't like roaring through a captivating novel.

He can't have looked at any of the underlying evidence either.

OMFG This sucks.

Then the task is a simple one. Reminds me of an old computer expression. On a blank disk you can seek forever.
