Redacted Mueller report to be released Thursday, DOJ says

Trump Questions Why 'Radical Left Democrats' Should See Mueller Report

In his 4-page executive summary, U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the investigation found no evidence that President Donald Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russian Federation to influence the last presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

The Justice Department is planning to release the 400-page report to both Congress and the public.

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.

But Mueller did not reach a definitive conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr filled that void by asserting there was no prosecutable case.

Barr has pledged to be as transparent as possible. The full report will show whether Barr's summary left out anything damaging to the president.

Mueller was less decisive on the question of obstruction of justice.

Barr's comments were criticized by Democrats, already sceptical of how he has handled the report's release. It's a "Complete and Total EXONERATION", according to Trump.

In their letter, Nunes and Schiff requested "all materials, regardless of form and classification, obtained or produced by the Special Counsel's office in the course of the investigation" - while also insisting that the Justice Department make Mueller and the senior staff who worked with him available to brief the committee.

Mr Mueller's team initially claimed Manafort shared political polling data from the campaign with Mr Kilimnik, who the special counsel has said had ties to Russian intelligence.

The meeting included a discussion about a proposal to resolve the conflict in Ukraine in terms favourable to the Kremlin, an issue that has damaged Russia's relations with the West. Prosecutors also said Manafort shared Trump campaign polling data with Kilimnik, although the significance of that act remains unclear.

Mueller ended his 22-month inquiry on March 22, handing Barr a confidential copy of the report.

One example of such an entanglement was the proposal to build a Trump tower in Moscow, a deal potentially worth hundreds of millions of dollars that never materialised. Schiff is the panel's chairman, Nunes its top Republican.

But he has said he must redact some sensitive information from the publicly released version, including grand jury information and information about USA intelligence-gathering. The bureau started the investigation as early as July 2016 and handed it over to the special counsel in May 2017.
