Release of Mueller Russia Report on 2016 US Election Appears Imminent

As Washington D.C. politicians brace themselves for the expected release of special counsel Robert Mueller's full report, the White House reportedly only has a "bare-bones" plan in place for handling the document: Speed reading the nearly 400-page redacted report and zeroing in on two unanswered questions.

"Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction", the president tweeted Monday.

Sources close to Trump told the Times that the president - emboldened by the release of Barr's summary - has been acting more confidently in recent weeks after feeling like he lost control following months of rigorous public speculation before Mueller's report finally concluded last month.

Attorney General William Barr is expected to release to Congress a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's election meddling this week.

Trump had previously said the decision to release the report would be "totally up to" his attorney general, while his press secretary Sarah Sanders in March said "I don't think the president has any problem" with its publication. But that result did not satisfy President Trump's political opponents, who are now calling for the full Mueller report to be released.

But how much of the report is made public is an open question.

U.S. President Donald Trump questioned Saturday whether Congressional Democrats should have access to a redacted version of the Mueller report that cleared him of conspiring to collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

Barr said in congressional testimony Wednesday that he the believes the DOJ "spied" on the Trump campaign and he plans to open a DOJ investigation into the origins of the Russian Federation probe.

All of that suggests the controversy is likely to be far from over even when the redacted, lengthy Mueller report is released.
