I'd rate it high. Remember what turned the tide in Watergate? Congressional testimony. The Barr letter could be a way of angling to get Mueller in front of a public hearing.

Remember, the context the last few months has been "Should we even let the report be public?" That was central question in Barr's confirmation hearing. The letter seems consistent with a strategy to make the report as public as possibly — potentially including Mueller testifying.

Basically, the idea here is that Barr says "Guess there's nothing to see here" in an exaggerated voice, and Trump responds by saying, "This is great! Release the whole report! I knew it would exonerate me!"

"During the course of his investigation, the Special Counsel also referred several matters to other offices for further action."

One reading is that Mueller, Barr and Rosenstein decided that, for constitutional or evidential reasons, Congressional oversight had a better chance than judicial action of holding Trump accountable, and these topline findings softsell it so the admin won't quash the full report.

Yup. Some noteworthy exceptions out there, but on the whole, the press is being much less circumspect in how they report on the results than Mueller, Barr and Rosenstein were in presenting them.

So what happens now? Those are just topline findings, so Congress is going to want the whole report so they can follow-up on the evidence Mueller's team collected. Whether Barr will pursue other charges is anyone's guess, but my guess would be: yes, eventually.

As I read it: – Investigation did not establish conspiracy or coordination between campaign and Russia; – Report takes no position on whether Trump committed obstruction; – Leaves it up to the AG and Congress to decide whether Trump committed a crime.

If any of you know someone who designs dishwasher racks, I have a few questions for them, like "why have you done this to me?" and "who made you this way?"

Petrified City/Entire City, 1933-35, Max Ernst Ernst applied layers of paint to a canvas. Underneath he placed metal grids, wooden boards etc, scratched away the top layers of paint & reworked the patterns now visible into forests, shellflowers, birds & petrified cities
