Robert Mueller's Russia Report Is Coming Thursday. Here's What You Need To Know

The Justice Department plans to release special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Thursday morning, it announced. Here's what you need to know.

Mueller was appointed in the spring of 2017 to investigate whether President Trump's campaign conspired with the Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The fact of the interference itself had been long established, and last month Attorney General William Barr told Congress that Mueller did not find that Trump's campaign was involved with it.

Barr also told Congress that Mueller didn't establish that Trump broke the law in trying to frustrate the investigation but neither did Mueller's office "exonerate" the president.

Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded for themselves, based on the special counsel's findings, that Trump would not face obstruction-of-justice charges.

1. With redactions, of course. Lots of them.

Especially the parts that suggest Trump "colluded."

4. Curious if some of the redacted information that Barr is undergoing can be ...

reconstructed using Mueller's previous court filings? I wonder if Barr, rump, etc. are considering these other sources of information too, in doing their redactions?

5. That explains Twitler's 10 tweets already this morning. He must know what it says.

10. Barr has tacitly admitted that he gave Trump a preview.

He refused to answer in Congress whether he had done that, so that's a "yes."

6. Hey, give them credit

red don's henchmen could have released it on Good Friday for even more obfuscation.

Of course the timing is planned to have everyone pay as little attention as possible over Easter weekend.

Jesus saves!

7. I wonder if Mueller will view the redacted report, compare the redactions to the original

version, and then subpoena Barr to answer charges of obstruction of justice?

9. I am confident that Adam Schiff will ask Mueller for his opinion.

I expect that will be interesting.

8. Bill Barr's Russia Report Is Coming Thursday. Here's What You Need To Know

It's all redacted. Every little embarrassing revelation about the Trumps, every major crime. All of it.
