“Attorney General William Barr is set to release on Thursday morning a redacted version of the report special counsel Robert Mueller submitted at the conclusion of his two-year-long Russia probe,” Politico reported on Monday morning.
“At that time, the report will be made available to Congress and the public, a Justice Department spokeswoman announced Monday.”
“The nearly 400-page report will be immediately scrutinized for insight into why the special counsel did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as Mueller’s reasoning for why he opted to not make a final ruling on whether the president obstructed justice.”
For his part, President Trump has maintained his innocence on the question of “collusion” with Russia, and has in fact called for something like an investigation of his own investigators:
“Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction. These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others! INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS!” he announced Monday morning on Twitter.
In a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) insinuated that Attorney General William Barr “may be whitewashing” Mueller’s report, though she admitted “but I don’t know if [Barr is] covering anything up.”
