AG Barr says Mueller’s thinking, not a mystery
Attorney General William Barr says he will release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Ru7ssia investigation within a week. Barr says he had a general sense of the Russia investigation's findings weeks before it concluded.
Barr says Mueller's thinking was "not a mystery" to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and other senior Justice Department leaders who had been supervising the probe for nearly two years.
He says Mueller's report will have portions redacted but they would be color-coded to indicate why the information could not be made public.
Mueller concluded his investigation in late March and submitted a nearly 400-page confidential report.
Barr sent a letter to Congress with Mueller's "principal conclusions." Barr said Mueller was given the opportunity to review that letter but declined to do so.
Barr says grand jury information, details that could reveal confidential intelligence sources and information that would interfere with ongoing cases will be redacted.
