Mueller's Report Is Likely to Be Released on Thursday, DOJ Says

The plan to release the redacted report on Thursday means that all of Washington will be on edge this week anticipating the almost 400-page report from the special counsel. But Barr's statement in the letter that "most" of Trump's actions that had raised questions about obstruction were "the subject of public reporting" suggested that some actions were not publicly known.

Mr Montoya said it should fall to Congress to decide whether conduct discovered by Mr Mueller's team warranted an effort to remove the president from office.

It's here. The Mueller report will be released on Thursday. In that letter to Congress, Barr said Mueller's investigation did not establish that members of Trump's election campaign conspired with Russian Federation. The report was submitted to Attorney General William Barr last month, but very little details about he report has leaked.

Barr sent Congress a letter on March 24 summarizing Mueller's main conclusions. They've expressed concerns that Barr will redact information that is embarrassing to Trump.

But the special counsel found there was evidence "on both sides of the question" of whether Trump obstructed justice and that his probe didn't "exonerate" the president, Barr wrote.

Meanwhile, the top Democrat and Republican on the House Intelligence Committee are also asking Barr to produce all of the investigative materials compiled by Mueller's team and to make Mueller and his staff available for a briefing. Barr, appearing before a congressional panel last week, identified four areas of information that would be redacted: grand jury information, information that would reveal intelligence sources and methods, information that could interfere with ongoing prosecution and information that implicates the privacy of "peripheral players". We do not need your interpretation. "It was condescending, it was arrogant and it wasn't the right thing to do".

Democrats in Congress have demanded that Barr provide them with Mueller's full report - and all the evidence behind it. In it, Barr said the "special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election".

This means full analysis of the report will come out on Friday.
