Do you think DOJ regulations that have been place for 20 years should be ignored simply because the Mueller investigation didn’t turn out like you hoped?

I have a question. Did you read Attorney General Willam Barr's memo from June 8th,2018? There is no law that defines who is in charge of redacting a Special Council memo. In my opinion as someone who votes and believes in democracy. I do not think one person who has shown his prejudicial bias (please read Willam Barr's memo to President Donald Trump) should be in charge of such a sensitive document.   I did not want this to happen. Why would you assume such a thing? I  want the truth. I want this country to heal instead of divide.

I did a poor job presenting my question.

The DOJ regulations I mentioned don’t allow for the report to be released.  Do you believe those regulations should be ignored?

Yes, if there is confusion about who should review such reports.

No Special Counsel report should rest, unreviewed by others, with a political appointee. Particulary when the POTUS and members of that presidential campaign team have been considered during the investigation, the findings should be as public as possible . The People's House should always be the ultimate home of those type of investigations. They provide oversight. Perhaps AG Barr was testing whether or not he could get away with keeping it in his file drawer and simply providing memos with his interpretation and summaries of findings as answers to questions.

The precedent of delivering special counsel reports to Congress is well established, isn't it?

Not that I’m aware of.  And your link hasn’t enlightened me of any such precedent.

And, the only confusion I’m aware of is coming from the anti-Trumpers.  I don’t see what is so confusing.

“The DOJ regulations really do leave it up to Barr to decide,” Katy Harriger, a professor at Wake Forest University and the author of The Special Prosecutor in American Politics, told me in an email. “The only constraints on that are public pressure, which, if loud and consistent enough, is likely to make him release more, rather than less, of the report.” - https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/03/what-has-happen-muellers-report-become-public/586060/

The confusion is that there isn't much precident for many people for this kind of stuff happening at such high levels and we don't know protocols and we are still learning as time goes on.   

Some people just aren't satisfied with a four page summary of a 3,000 page document and want to read the details and analyze them.  Obviously republicans that heard only that Trump didn't collude aren't interested in anything else and want us to move on quickly.

Personally, I do understand that the FBI and it's sources might not be revealed.  Sometimes people and whistleblowers, and what they say need to be protected.  I understand that there are lots of "top secret" documents in Washington.  

I think another problem is that people just don't trust the government.  Trump feeds into this for his benefit as he doesn't want people to trust the FBI, he campaigned that Washington is a swamp to be drained,  but it's also backfiring as they don't trust his appointees either.

Some plausible points.

(Mueller’s report is 300, not 3000 pages)

I incorrectly presumed that we are all aware that the Whitewater report was given to Congress and that we recall both Watergate and Iran-Contra hearings in Congress.

This link provides a reasonable discussion of those investigations, IMHO.

I made a mistake the Attorney General Willam Barr memo is only 19 pages. I keep writing 20 pages.
