Mueller Report To Be Released Thursday


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will be released on Thursday morning, a Justice Department spokesperson said.

Democrats have been insisting on the release of the full report, but Attorney General William Barr has said that certain information — like grand jury material and information relating to other ongoing investigations — will be redacted from the document.

In a letter to Congress last month announcing the end of Mueller’s probe, Barr summarized the core conclusions of the special counsel’s investigation, including a finding that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election.

Barr also wrote in that letter that Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice, but said that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that the evidence was not sufficient to bring forward such a charge. 

Barr had said last week during his testimony before a House panel that the report would be released “within a week,” and told senators the next day that it would come out “next week.”

The report’s release is almost certain to set up a battle between the Justice Department and Democratic lawmakers seeking the release of the entire report and all of the evidence collected by Mueller.
