investigation into russian interference in the 2016 election and answering questions specifically about his summary of that investigation and report. it was on march 24 that william barr released a four page summary about the mueller investigation, several weeks before the full report was made public he took some criticism for that, he was accused by democratic leaders of trying to shape the public's perception about the report before it was available for them to read. that is what a lot of the topic of questioning has been about in this hearing so far. the senate committee hearing comes a day after it was revealed that special counsel, robert mueller was not happy with the way the attorney general characterized his investigation. in fact, mueller wrote a letter to william barr to express his frustration back in march. in that letter, he accused the attorney general of creating public confusion that threatened to undermine the purpose of the special counsel. his summary was that the president did not collude with operatives to influence the election, and there was not enough evidence to charge the president with obstruction of justice. mueller said that characterization was oversimplified and lacked
9:07 am
context. william barr said his motivation in releasing that summary was to provide a broad verdict on conclusions of the report. here is what he said.>> announcing after an extended trial with the verdict of the trial, it is pending release of the full transcript, that is what we were trying to do, notify the people as to the bottom line conclusion. we were not trying to summarize the 410 page report. >> the questioning has been predictably partisan, which republicans are more sympathetic, democratics are more combative. they are taking a quick break for lunch but they will resume this afternoon and the questioning will continue tomorrow as well. william barr is scheduled to testify before the house judiciary committee tomorrow and the chairman of that

9:22 am
8-month. seresto, seresto, seresto. on friday, the independent honors for the bart and berkeley police officers will post an important meeting. joining me to talk about it is bart's independent police, russell bloom. i don't think a lot of people know what an independent police auditor exactly is. can you tell us what that is? >> yethe way that our agency
9:23 am
works is, i am the independent police auditor and i have certain levels of oversight and authority to review the work of the bart police department. our oversight system, completely civilian run is a two prong system, it consists of my agency and also 11 members of volunteers, that is the bart police civilian review board. >> this came about after the grant happened 2 years ago, this was put into place partly because of that. can you explain that? >> yes, oscar grant was killed on new year's day in 2009, the board of directors reached out to the national revision of black law enforcement executives and ask them to do a review of the existing police system. that report came back, including a recommendation that there would be some form of civilian oversight, independent
9:24 am
civilian oversight. so the board of directors at that time created a system of civilian oversight, again, including two prongs, my agency and also the civilian review board, both of which are intended to be independent of the internal bart structure and the police department. >> what is surprising to me is that not every police agency has this, some cities basically, if something goes wrong, if someone complains about a police officer acting inappropriately, who is going to investigate the actual police officer, its own agency? so, having civilian oversight, do you think that is important? >> i absolutely think it is important, i think that it creates an additional layer of trust among the community that, if there are concerns about the way police officers in the community are conducting themselves, or even if there is a specific incident of concern, to have a sense that it is being reviewed externally is very important. and, in most cases, cities don't tend to implement or
9:25 am
establish civilian oversight until after there is some sort of tragic accident or incident, and i think that it is important to see that many jurisdictions and municipalities nationally are starting out with forward thinking and trying to implement some form of external review prior to some tragic incident occurring. >> in the last 10 years, we have had a lot of alleged incidents of police misconduct that have been in the news that you see with the video cameras that document all of this. do you think that because of that, police agencies might be more open to having someone like you or an agency like yours implemented before something like that happens? >> i think so. i think that a lot of police departments in the elected officials that control those departments have an understanding that reform ever has entered into our
9:26 am
consciousness, and one of the things that police departments and chiefs naturally are looking to do is to implement concepts of 21st century policing. one of the recommendations of the former president, obama's task force included having some sort of external review system and independent oversight. again, moving forward, many chiefs are looking ahead and trying to get that in place in advance of something going wrong. >> all right, this friday, you are going to make your pitch to some of the cities, good luck with that. >> if i may, our event is may 3, starting at 8:30 in the morning, 300 lakeside drive right here in oakland. it is open to all people, no one is turned away for lack of funds and if i may also add, we have a networking reception at the lake chalet restaurant at 1520 lakeside drive with some great music. >> all right, russell bloom,
9:27 am
