Fight brews over expected blacked out portions of Mueller report

Former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller

White House officials and sources close to the administration say advisers to the president are most concerned about the possibility of previously unknown examples of potential obstruction of justice and what information Mueller's team learned from witness interviews, especially former White House Counsel Don McGahn who sat for well over 30 hours with Mueller's investigators. It was brought to you by Dirty Cops, Crooked Hillary and the DNC, ' he wrote on Twitter. White House officials will review the report, brief the president, and then release a statement that will come from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. But the political battle is far from finished over the special counsel's investigation of Russian efforts to help Mr. Trump in 2016 and whether there was cooperation with his campaign. They have expressed concern that Barr, a Trump appointee named after the president fired former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, could black out material to protect the president.

Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that is probing the election, told CNN on Sunday that Barr should release the full report and underlying investigatory evidence to his panel, but Barr has balked.

The Justice Department announced Monday that it expects to release the redacted version Thursday morning, sending the findings of the almost two-year probe to Congress and making them available to the public.

The scores of outstanding questions about the investigation have not stopped the president and his allies from declaring victory.

Congress frequently receives classified documents and briefings, and Democrats said there was no reason the Mueller report should be any different.

The questions, obtained by Fox News at the time, covered a wide range of topics, including whether the president had knowledge of contacts between former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the former Russian ambassador, Sergei Kislyak; the topics and comments made during meetings with former FBI Director James Comey before he was sacked; his interactions with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his feelings regarding his recusal from the Russia investigation; and the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 involving Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, among others.

"The greatest Scam in political history", he tweeted Tuesday. The president's two top White House lawyers, Pat Cipollone and Emmet Flood, are expected to be among the White House officials reading the report. In the waiting game's final days, the White House continued to try to shape the narrative. "No, I'm talking about people in private life, not public officeholders", Barr said.

"The downside of that strategy was they'll have to live by what's in the actual document", the strategist said. Not only does this amount of time seem extremely excessive, the notion that they announced on Monday that they somehow knew they would be able to finish on Thursday causes a logical person to conclude that the release date, just before a major holiday weekend, was always the predetermined plan. And there is fear among some presidential confidants that the rush to spike the football in celebration could backfire if bombshell new information emerges. That remark came after Barr told a Senate panel he believed there was "spying" by USA intelligence authorities on Trump's 2016 campaign - a charge he later tried to walk back. This crime was all made up. 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.

Barr also said he would redact any information in the report that pertains to ongoing investigations stemming from the special counsel's original probe.

Barr, who has broad authority to decide how much of the report to release, has promised to be as transparent as possible, but told lawmakers he would redact four categories of content: secret grand jury information, intelligence-gathering sources and methods, information relating to active cases and information could affect the privacy of "peripheral third parties" who were not charged.

George Papadopoulos lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his attempts to get Clinton dirt from Russian Federation.
