Some experts say it’s ’50 percent to 70 percent redacted’: AG William Bar will censor over half of the Mueller report, ex-FBI official says

Published

Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI former director of counterintelligence, said on Monday that more than half of the Russian investigation report will be redacted when Attorney General William Barr releases it on Thursday.

“We should be looking back at [the attorney general’s] statements that give us a clue as to what we’re in for,” Figliuzzi explained during an MSNBC panel discussion. “He has used the phrase, this first pass in reference to what he is going to first give Congress. That implies this will not be a good faith first effort. He is prepped for a kind of battle of back and forth negotiations.”

“Let’s look for what percentage of the so-called 400-page report has actual redactions through it,” he added. “Experts have been saying look for anywhere from 50% to 70% to be redacted.”

Here’s why ‘electability’ is a sucker’s bet in the 2020 primaries

Published

Primary candidates fight hard to be seen as the person best positioned to beat an incumbent, but electability is only clear in hindsight.  It isn’t quantifiable. Voters may work backwards, concluding that the candidate they personally prefer is also the most likely to win.

It’s a perception often grounded in lazy conventional wisdom. CBS reports that in key 2020 battleground states, “the belief that [Joe Biden]] could fare best against President Trump is currently propelling [him] in the early Democratic nomination race.” That belief is common despite the fact that the former Vice President is well known for being overly handsy and putting his foot in his mouth, has previously run two notably bad presidential campaigns and has been dogged by accusations of plagiarism dating back to law school.
