Mueller report on Trump, Russia expected to be released Thursday

The Justice Department said Monday a redacted version of the highly anticipated Mueller Report will be released to Congress and the public Thursday, according to the Associated Press.

The Department of Justice said on Monday that Barr plans to release the redacted version of the almost 400-page report to Congress and the public on Thursday morning.

The almost 400-page report details the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller and his team about the Trump-Russia investigation.

Napolitano, as have other legal analysts, has previously argued that Mueller likely found "some evidence" that Trump and his associates conspired with Russian Federation. Attorney General Bill Barr has already reported that Mueller concluded there was no collusion, although reports have suggested the Mueller report presents arguments for and against claims that Trump obstructed justice.

Kennedy said that many Democrats apparently assumed that the Mueller report was going to be "a gift basket of impeachable offenses", but Attorney General William Barr's summary of Mueller's findings essentially shot that hope down.

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.

Last month, Mueller submitted his nearly 400-page report to the Justice Department for review by the attorney general and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The Justice Department didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Opposition Democrats like Nadler have launched new investigations of Trump, a Republican, but the president is objecting. "Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!" the president added. The full report will show whether Barr's summary left out anything damaging to the president. Mueller didn't make a determination on the obstruction charges against the president. 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.

The House Judiciary Committee voted earlier this month to authorize a subpoena for Mueller's full report and evidence, depending on what Barr turns over.

"I honestly think that will happen", Napolitano said confidently.
