Barr to release ‘lightly redacted’ Mueller report with ‘detailed blow-by-blow’ of Trump’s conduct: report

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr has not heavily redacted special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The report was based on sources “familiar with the matter.”

“The Justice Department plans to release a lightly redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s 400-page report Thursday, offering a granular look at the ways in which President Trump was suspected of having obstructed justice,” The Post reported.

Attorney General Bill Barr has scheduled a 9:30 a.m. Eastern press conference. The report is planned to be delivered to Congress at 11:00 a.m. with the public receiving the report sometime later in the day.

“The report — the general outlines of which the Justice Department has briefed the White House on — will reveal that Mueller decided he could not come to a conclusion on the question of obstruction because it was difficult to determine Trump’s intent and some of his actions could be interpreted innocently,” The Post noted. “But it will offer a detailed blow-by-blow of his alleged conduct — analyzing tweets, private threats and other episodes at the center of Mueller’s inquiry, they added.”

Barr’s roll-out strategy for the report has been criticized as a “political hatchet job.”

The chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), slammed the AG in a hastily-scheduled press conference.

At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.

The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.

"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."
