Justice Dept. expected to release Mueller report Thursday

Justice Dept. expected to release Mueller report Thursday

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

Barr on March 24 sent a four-page letter to politicians detailing Mueller's "principal conclusions" including that the 22-month probe did not establish that President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign team conspired with Russian Federation. In response to a report that offices on the Hill are ordering whiskey and preparing pizza orders for the Thursday news dump, MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner said there was a "strong likelihood" of impeachment-worthy material.

Opposition Democrats like Nadler have launched new investigations of Trump, a Republican, but the president is objecting.

Ticklethewire.com will provide details of the report once it becomes public.

Turner made the comment on "America's Newsroom" Monday, saying confidence returned because "it says that there was no collusion and we know certainly that we did not have the aspect of the Trump campaign doing that".

Miller said the Taliban have made it clear that they have ignored the will of the people and have guaranteed more violence", Butler said.

In order to distract from unanswered questions about Mueller's report, Trump reportedly revived a proposal which was previously been rejected by his own administration to release immigrant detainees in so-called sanctuary cities, sources close to the president told the Times. The attorney general then sent Congress a four-page letter that detailed Mueller's "principal conclusions".

Since those findings were announced, congressional Democrats have been sharply critical of Barr's handling of the Mueller report, accusing the attorney general of soft-pedaling the findings to protect the president. "And we need to see them and the public needs to see them".

"I have said, and I'll say again, 'No thank you, Mr. Attorney General".

Since the report was submitted to Barr, Democrats have sought to have it released and also criticized Barr for issuing an opinion so quickly after the release based on the size of the report.

While the prospect of the Democratic-led House of Representatives attempting to impeach Trump appears to have dimmed, the House judiciary committee will be looking for any evidence relevant to ongoing investigations into obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power by the president or others in the administration. Barr had testified that it would come out this week, but the timing was unknown.
