Trump says Russian Federation probe ’con job,’ as fuller report looms

Trump says Russian Federation probe ’con job,’ as fuller report looms

Asked by Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, at a hearing last week if that meant he would redact information to protect the interests of Mr Trump, Mr Barr said it did not.

Jerrold Nadler, has said he is prepared to issue subpoenas "very quickly" for the full report on Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign if it is released with blacked-out sections.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders repeatedly tried to make the same case on TV talk shows on Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, also will take part in the news conference. Does he love the Mueller report or despise it?

A redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report into Russian meddling in the US election will be released on April 18, 2019, the Justice Department said as President Trump again lashed out at the most politically explosive probe in modern USA history.

Barr has resisted requests from Democrats that he provide a copy of Mueller's entire report without redactions to Congress, arguing he can not legally release evidence collected by the grand jury. We may not know what the secret material is, but at least we'll know why it wasn't disclosed.

Mueller announced the completion of his wide-ranging probe into the president's campaign and foreign election meddling late last month. Barr has said publicly that he has "no plans to submit the report to the White House for a privilege review". However, contrary to Trump's false claim, Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Since the special counsel's office closed its investigation late last month, Barr and his team at the Justice Department have been reviewing the almost 400-page final report to determine how much of it can be made public. Lawmakers are prepared to go to court to obtain Mueller's full report along with underlying evidence.

Five former Trump aides or advisers pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in Mueller's investigation, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. In the waiting game's final days, the White House continued to try to shape the narrative.

But Trump's inner circle knows there will likely be further releases of embarrassing or politically damaging information. About a third think the department has shared too little with the White House, which has argued that portions of the report should be kept confidential if they involve private conversations of the president subject to executive privilege.

The Justice Department regularly redacts information about people who were interviewed or scrutinised in investigations but not charged.

Barr, a Trump appointee as the country's top law enforcement official, said last week he believes that top American intelligence agencies spied on the Trump campaign. The crime was committed by the other side. None of the indictments against any Trump campaign officials had anything to do with the 2016 election. Critics of the Russian Federation investigation have seized on the fact that the warrant application cited Democratic-funded opposition research, done by a former British spy, into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. He later amended his remarks, saying that while he is "not saying that improper surveillance occurred", he is "concerned about it and looking into it". They are expected to seize on any negative portrait of the president to demand the release of the full report and will be looking for any signs that Barr is trying to shield Trump and his family. The report could provide new information that could prompt further investigations or even consideration of impeachment proceedings, a tricky political calculation since Mueller did not conclude there was collusion or obstruction.

The public has yet to see all of the evidence relating to obstruction of justice, though many allegations of Trump's wrongdoing have been loudly reported in the press.
