The Hill's Morning Report - Waiting on Mueller: Answers come on Thursday

By Alexis Simendinger and Al Weaver - 04/16/19 06:32 AM EDT

Washington is on pins and needles for the next 48 hours ahead of the expected release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Thursday. As Attorney General William Barr has said for weeks, the report will feature redactions to protect grand jury material and information relating to other investigations, much to the chagrin of Democratic lawmakers who want the whole unredacted report released immediately.

As Jacqueline Thomsen writes, the report is expected to reveal the findings of Mueller's 22-month investigation as well as the evidence collected by investigators during that time.

It is also expected to set up a showdown between House Democrats and the Justice Department over what’s out of view behind thick black lines. Barr said last week that he does not plan to ask court permission to release grand jury material included in the report. A federal appeals court ruled earlier this month that a judge does not have the inherent authority to release grand jury information, making it less likely that those details will become public.

1. Has Congress gone to the courts to request the redacted parts?

Or requested all of the testimony in the cases?

2. Not yet, I'm afraid. Supposed to do it on Thursday is my guess.

 

Why so many "Hill" articles? I'm not waiting on pins and needles for a bogus report by Barr.
