Redacted Mueller Report Will Be 'Released Within a Week'

Redacted Mueller Report Will Be 'Released Within a Week'by 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

Amid growing pressure to release the full report of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump’s campaign allegedly colluding with Russia, Attorney General William Barr has announced that he will be aiming to release a redacted version of events in a week’s time. Making the statement as of Tuesday, April 9th, AG Barr also made it clear that he would not be releasing an unredacted version to Congress, according to CNN.

“I don’t intend at this stage to send the full, unredacted report to the committee,” Barr confirmed via House subcommittee. Refusal to release such data, which has proven controversial with sitting Democrats, could potential spark further debate.

Barr has asserted that he will explain why redactions have been made from Mueller’s report, which was recently delivered to exonerate Trump and his team from any wrongful collusion with Russian authorities on the run-up to the 2016 US General Election. Democrats, meanwhile, have continued to push for the full document to be released, with talk of subpoenas having been rife in recent weeks.

Senators in Congress representing the Democratic Party are openly willing to pursue a full release of Mueller’s documents via the courts. House Judiciary Democrats have already lined up a subpoena to obtain the full lowdown, while Chairman Jerry Nader advises he will be waiting to see Barr’s delivery before forging ahead.

“The question is what we receive,” Nadler stated. “Do we receive a full copy of the Mueller Report and the documentation underneath it? Do we receive most of it with a little redaction or do they completely expurgate it? We’ll have to take a look at it.”

Barr’s release of a four-page summary of the extensive report drew criticism from Democrats. It’s also been revealed that Mueller rejected the opportunity to review Barr’s conclusions. This came as pressure mounted on the AG to release a summary of sorts.

“I suspect they probably wanted more put out,” Barr commented, referring to Mueller’s team. “In my view, I was not interested in putting out summaries or trying to summarise, because I think any summary, regardless of who prepares it, not only runs the risk of being under-inclusive or over-inclusive, but also would trigger a lot of discussion and analysis that really should await everything coming out at once.”

Following Barr’s statement as of April 9th, many will be keen to see what is made public by April 16th.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller is defending his office's prosecution of Roger Stone. As part of Mueller's Russia investigation, Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing Congress. In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Mueller said Stone is still a convicted felon, despite President Donald Trump's commutation of Stone's sentence. Because his sentence has been commuted, he will not go to prison. But his conviction stands.

Donald Trump suggests delay in polls, cites mail-in voting 'fraud' l Key details

US President Donald Trump on Thursday asked for the US Elections to be delayed. "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Trump said. The date of the presidential election — the Tuesday after the first Monday in November in every fourth year — is enshrined in federal law and would require an act of Congress to change, including agreement from the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. One Republican governor, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, quickly shot down Trump's idea: “Make no mistake: the election will happen in New Hampshire on November 3rd. End of story. Our voting system in NH is secure, safe, and reliable. We have done it right 100% of the time for 100 years – this year will be no different."

'Children handle covid very well': Trump defends video blocked by Twitter & FB

Facebook and Twitter have yet again acted against a video shared by accounts linked to U.S. President Donald Trump for violating their policies on coronavirus misinformation. The Trump re-election campaign’s Twitter account, @TeamTrump, was briefly banned from sending new tweets after it posted a clip of an interview where Trump can be heard saying that children are virtually immune to Covid. Facebook then removed the same clip when it was posted by President Trump. However, Trump defended his statement at a press briefing later and said that children seem to do really well against Covid as their immune system is very strong. He said that his argument is backed by every statistic that has come out on Covid. Trump has been repeatedly accused of spreading misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 150,000 people across the United States, including the infamous suggestion that virus victims could be injected with disinfectant. Twitter and facebook had earlier also blocked a video posted by Trump which defended the use of hydroxychloroquine for treating Covid. Watch the full video for all the details.
