The White House's latest Mueller absurdity is shocking. Even for Trump.

Trump officials say Russia is interfering. Trump shrugs.

The position of Trump and the White House is this: It is not a legitimate legislative purpose for Congress to further flesh out special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings with the goal of fortifying our election security against future outside attacks on our political system.

Sections of the Mueller Report describing the structure and actions taken by the Internet Research Agency are heavily redacted. Sections … describing the hacking activities undertaken by Russian intelligence services likewise contain significant redactions, which impair the ability of the Committee to gain a complete understanding of Russia’s actions. Without this information, the Committee is unable to fully perform its responsibility to protect the impending 2020 elections — and thus our republic itself — from a recurrence of foreign interference.

The oversight battles just took a new turn. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has sent a detailed new letter to the White House, protesting its blanket resistance to any and all House oversight efforts.

What makes this more galling is that members of Trump’s own administration say that Russian interference efforts are an ongoing threat. FBI Director Christopher A. Wray recently declared those efforts represent a “significant counterintelligence threat,” adding that he views Russia’s 2018 efforts as a “dress rehearsal for the big show in 2020.”
