Justice Secretary William Barr plans to release a redacted version of Special Investigator Robert Mueller’s investigation report on suspicion of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russia, the Justice Department said Monday.
This document will be transmitted to the Congress and made public.
The Secretary of Justice has already warned that it would be a redacted version , for purposes including protection of sources and compliance with the rules on privacy, the 400 pages – excluding annexes and tables – of the report Mueller . He said on Monday that he was ready to be heard by the Judicial Affairs Committees of the Senate and the House of Representatives on May 1 and 2.
Democrats demand the publication of the Mueller report in its entirety .
On March 22, Robert Mueller submitted his confidential report to William Barr after 22 months of investigation.
Attorney General Barr published two days later a four-page summary summarizing the “key findings” of the Special Prosecutor’s Inquiry, appointed in May 2017. This summary contained only 74 words from the Mueller Report.
According to William Barr, the investigation did not establish that Trump’s campaign team had conspired with Russia as part of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Regarding the suspicions of obstruction of justice weighing on Donald Trump, the prosecutor Mueller presented evidence corroborating this assumption and other elements reversing it, and it does not decide on the follow-up.
William Barr concludes in his note that there was not enough evidence to warrant a lawsuit against the president.
