Visualizing the Special Counsel’s Silence

13 representations of “Peter Carr declined to comment.”

Since the appointment last May of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel overseeing the investigation into Russian interference, I’ve been fascinated by how many times the investigation’s spokesperson, Peter Carr, has refused to comment on a breaking story.

Following Peter Stone and Greg Gordon’s story for McClatchey from Friday, April 13th, I sought to create visualizations of the stories I’d seen where Carr claimed, “no comment,” by creating redactions-in-reverse of the stories in their original form.

Below, all 13 stories, arranged chronologically.
