Special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the Russia investigation and President Donald Trump is expected to be made public Thursday morning, the Justice Department said Monday.
Washington has been waiting for the release of the report, which has put Attorney General William Barr at loggerheads with congressional Democrats who have demanded that the entire, unredacted document be released after Mueller recently concluded his nearly two-year investigation.
Six House Democratic committee chairs sent a letter to Barr last month requesting that he submit the full report to Congress by April 2. Barr missed that deadline.
Barr sent a four-page letter to Congress last month summarizing Mueller’s report that said the special counsel found no proof that Trump or anyone associated with his campaign criminally had colluded with Russia.
Barr also said Mueller reached no conclusion about whether Trump obstructed justice, but did not exonerate the president.
