U.S. attorney general to release redacted Mueller report on Thursday

Attorney General William Barr plans to release a redacted version of the special counsel's Russian Federation report on Thursday morning, a Justice Department official told reporters.

The Justice Department announced on Monday that a redacted version of the report will be released to the public on Thursday.

Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump's insistence last week in congressional testimony that his campaign was spied upon, although he told lawmakers he had so far found no proof.

Two days later, Barr released a four-page summary of the "key findings". Two days later, Barr released a four-page letter summarising what he said were Mueller's primary conclusions, notably that the investigation did not establish that members of Trump's election campaign conspired with Russian Federation.

Since the report was submitted to Barr, Democrats have sought to have it released and also criticized Barr for issuing an opinion so quickly after the release based on the size of the report.

Barr said in a letter earlier this month that he is scrubbing the report to avoid disclosing any grand jury information or classified material, in addition to portions of the report that pertain to ongoing investigations or that "would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties". She said Barr "is the attorney general of the United States, not the attorney general of Donald Trump". Details may change. This story will be updated, and NCRM will likely publish follow-up stories on this news. Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller probe, defended Barr in an interview on April 11.

All of this is sure to come up when Barr testifies about the Mueller report before the House and Senate Judiciary panels. "And we need to see them and the public needs to see them". "Attorney General Barr will make the decision!"

"As I have made clear, Congress requires the full and complete special counsel report, without redactions, as well as access to the underlying evidence", Nadler said in a statement this month.
