Mueller report’s release is expected Thursday, Justice Dept. says

The U.S. Justice Department expects to make Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russian Federation investigation public on Thursday morning.

The almost 400-page report details the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller and his team about the Trump-Russia investigation. Two days later, Barr summarized Mueller's conclusions in a four-page letter.

Barr said the special counsel didn't find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's associates during the 2016 presidential campaign.

In the synopsis, Barr wrote that he and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein examined the evidence and determined that they would not be able to make a case for obstruction.

On "Outnumbered" Monday, Capri Cafaro said she expects some Democrats and Trump adversaries to claim that the redacted portions of the report are "hiding" potential evidence of Trump-Russia collusion or obstruction of justice.

Mueller submitted the document to the attorney general on March 22.

Barr told a Senate subcommittee last week that he's planning to color-code four types of redactions: grand jury information, classified information, material about ongoing information and material affecting peripheral third parties. They've expressed concerns that Barr will redact information that is embarrassing to Trump.

Justice Department regulations give Barr, a Trump appointee and the top US law enforcement officer, broad authority to decide what to release and what to withhold from the report.

William Barr, the attorney-general, said that he would publish a redacted version of the special counsel's 400-page findings this week. "Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own", Barr said of the report.

President Trump welcomed the upcoming report, but warned about the investigation leading up to it. "Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!" the president added.

Despite the report's imminent release, House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler has been authorized to subpoena Barr for the whole undredacted report.

Meanwhile, the top Democrat and Republican on the House Intelligence Committee are also asking Barr to produce all of the investigative materials compiled by Mueller's team and to make Mueller and his staff available for a briefing.

"I think spying did occur", Barr said.
