Redacted Mueller report to be released Thursday, DOJ says

Attorney General William Barr will release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report of his almost two-year investigation into President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and foreign election interference Thursday morning, a Justice Department spokeswoman confirmed.

Mueller's much-anticipated report is set to be released to the public and Congress with redactions on Thursday morning, the Justice Department announced Monday.

As Congress awaits the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report, Rep. Mike Turner of OH, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, said it "gives us confidence back in our democracy". The attorney general then sent Congress a four-page letter that detailed Mueller's "principal conclusions". However, on the subject of whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice, Barr quoted another line from the report that said: "While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

Mueller turned over a copy of his confidential report to Barr on March 22, ending his 22-month-long inquiry. Information that's expected to be redacted includes materials related to the grand jury and pending investigations.

Besides the fact that the game won't be a third Battlefront , EA had the good sense to join forces with Respawn again. The story mode campaign was cool but too short, and the loot boxes gave the game some pretty bad publicity.

Barr has pledged to be as transparent as possible. The report was submitted to Attorney General William Barr last month, but very little details about he report has leaked. The Mueller investigation has cast a cloud over the presidency of Trump, who has often called it a politically motivated "witch hunt". The president again slammed the investigation moments before the Justice Department revealed the release date for the final report. "Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!" It's a "Complete and Total EXONERATION", according to Trump. The attorney general told lawmakers he believed that spying on Trump's campaign did occur, and that he plans to investigate whether it was legally justified.

The House Judiciary Committee is poised to issue a subpoena for the report's redacted portions. "I think that's absolutely wrong and I think that's a threat".

Mr Montoya said it should fall to Congress to decide whether conduct discovered by Mr Mueller's team warranted an effort to remove the president from office.
