And so the plot thickens.

Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that the findings in the Mueller report were more troubling than Attorney General William P. Barr let on in his summary, the New York Times reports. [2]

That revelation will only emboldened Democrats in Congress to push Barr to provide them with an unredacted version of the report.

The Times goes on to write:

At stake in the dispute — the first evidence of tension between Mr. Barr and the special counsel’s office — is who shapes the public’s initial understanding of one of the most consequential government investigations in American history. Some members of Mr. Mueller’s team are concerned that, because Mr. Barr created the first narrative of the special counsel’s findings, Americans’ views will have hardened before the investigation’s conclusions become public.
