Chris Cuomo Suggests Timing Of Mueller Report Release Was Actually ‘Perfect’

The CNN host explained why Attorney General William Barr's release of the report ahead of the holidays could have backfired.

The decision to release the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report on Thursday morning may have been criticized in some quarters, given its proximity to the Easter and Passover holidays.

But CNN’s Chris Cuomo argued on Friday why he believed that despite Attorney General William Barr’s apparent plan to “let it get lost in our vacations and holy days,” it had backfired because the timing of its release was actually “perfect.”

“This is the time we get with family, we get deep, we examine articles of faith, and I argue it is the time to do the same about our politics,” said the host of “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“Christians define this time as about rebirth and renewal,” he continued. “So let’s do that when it comes to our political culture. Let’s think about wanting the best from these men and women, picking the best of these men and women, surrendering nothing of value to us as we weigh in on other aspects of our life.”
