Attorney General to Release Mueller Report on April 18

Attorney General to Release Mueller Report on April 18

Bob Casey, D-Pa., said he doesn't have high hopes for what will be made available either to the public or to Congress but is keeping his fingers crossed he is wrong.

Democrats have demanded Barr release the entire almost 400-page report and the underlying evidence that Mueller and Barr used to make their conclusions. Barr provided a four-page letter to Congress two days later that detailed Mueller's "principal conclusions". Two days after receiving the 400-page report, Barr sent a four-page summary to Congress, concluding that Mueller's findings didn't show the Trump campaign conspired with Russian Federation.

However, Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice, instead presenting evidence on both sides of the argument.

A former top Federal Bureau of Investigation official has said special prosecutor Robert Mueller's report could offer enough evidence to allow Congress to launch impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump.

Over the past several weeks, a small group of Justice Department officials has been scouring the document to redact grand jury information and details relating to pending investigations, among other materials. But Barr's statement in the letter that "most" of Trump's actions that had raised questions about obstruction were "the subject of public reporting" suggested that some actions were not publicly known. The president again slammed the investigation moments before the Justice Department revealed the release date for the final report. It will have color-coded redactions.




Democrats and critics of the president have demanded that Barr release the full report, but Napolitano and other legal experts have argued the attorney general is not permitted to release an unredacted version. "Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!" the president added.

"When he [Barr] said in his four-page letter that the government could not establish the existence of a conspiracy-he meant it could not establish it beyond a reasonable doubt", the judicial analyst argued last month, shortly after Barr's summary was released.

Mueller is also expected to shed light on whether, once in the White House, Trump sought to obstruct justice, for example by firing James Comey as FBI director in May 2017, when the agency was heading the Russian Federation investigation. 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.

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.
