White House braces for redacted Mueller report

Mueller submitted his final, confidential report to Barr last month. He's said the redacted material will be color-coded to indicate whether it involves classified material, grand jury information or damage to the reputation of a private citizen "peripheral" to the investigation.

In his letter, Barr said the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's associates during the campaign, but Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Mueller announced the completion of his investigation into the president's campaign and foreign election interference late last month.

The release of the 400-page report will come more than three weeks after Attorney General Bill Barr's controversial summary allowed Trump to declare it "a complete and total exoneration" of him after almost two years of investigation. Analysts urged caution, however, suggesting that while the contacts with Russian Federation might not have risen to the level of a crime, the full report may still detail behaviour and financial entanglements that raise questions about Trump's curious pattern of deference to Russia's president, Vladimir Putin.

After Barr released his four-page letter, Trump claimed "complete and total exoneration", condemned "an illegal takedown that failed" and accused unnamed political enemies of treasonous acts.

Democrats immediately called for Mueller to testify and for his report to be released.

Luke Walton, Lakers Mutually Part Ways
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called Walton "one of the best human beings in the National Basketball Association ". Walton couldn't win with LeBron James but the rumors are they know just the man to get this team back to the playoffs.

But Mueller himself took no stance on the weight of the evidence of obstruction, Barr noted, raising doubts over whether Trump had truly been exonerated by the report. The attorney general also said there was not enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice. Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller probe, defended Barr in an interview on April 11.

Barr has spent weeks redacting sensitive information from the report in preparation for its public release.

Many Democrats have criticized Barr for inserting his opinion so quickly after the report was delivered, and threatened to subpoena him for the full unredacted report.

Mueller turned over a copy of his report to the attorney general on 22 March.

"We know with certainty why they interfered and what they were trying to do but we don't know a lot of details", he said. "We don't need you interpreting for us, '" Pelosi said at a recent news conference. Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., has threatened to subpoena the Justice Department to release Mueller's report and related documents, if he and Barr can not come to an agreement over redactions and the special counsel's underlying evidence.
