Release of Mueller Russia Report on 2016 US Election Appears Imminent

Release of Mueller Russia Report on 2016 US Election Appears Imminent

Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was appointed to investigate election tampering, alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives and related matters.

"Does Mueller use any language suggesting that a reasonable prosecutor acting in her discretion could have charged President Trump with obstruction but for DOJ policy against indicting a sitting President?" he said.

The attorney general, during a hearing last week, said he would be releasing a redacted version of the report in the next week.

Ex-Obama aide charged with lying to Justice Department
The investigation into Craig comes as the Justice Department is cracking down on unregistered foreign lobbying and consulting. Authorities say that Craig lied to the Mueller team about his work with the Ukrainian government in 2012 and 2013.

The president and most Republicans saw that rundown of Mueller's major findings as "complete and total exoneration", even though Mueller did not take a position on whether Trump obstructed justice, given his comments and actions around the ongoing investigation. Nadler noted that Barr, before he became the country's top law enforcement official, wrote that Trump could not obstruct justice because the president "is the boss of the Justice Department and could order it around to institute an investigation, to eliminate an investigation or could not be questioned about that".

But how much of the report is made public is an open question. But Barr responded, saying he thought he could complete any redactions by "mid-April, if not sooner", and the release anticipated for this week does hit that promised timeline. But that result did not satisfy President Trump's political opponents, who are now calling for the full Mueller report to be released.

Trump and Barr have called for investigations into the origins of probes of his campaign ties to Russian Federation, and the attorney general has promised to issue a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report into his findings on that topic. The president's personal attorney Jay Sekulow refused to disclose how they will tackle the redacted report - which Barr is expected to deliver this week - though he told the newspaper it will be similar to how they responded to Barr's summary sent to Congress.
