What the public will not see in the Mueller report

Some current and former White House staffers are anxious the soon-to-be-released report by special counsel Robert Mueller will reveal them as the sources of damaging information relating to President Donald Trump, NBC News is reporting.

He unleashed a series of tweets Monday focusing on the previously released summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's conclusions - including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump again misrepresented - produced by Attorney General William Barr. However, you won't be able to read all of it. As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted special counsel report - now expected Thursday - Donald Trump stepped up his attacks in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russian Federation, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath.

Both of those cases were under somewhat different circumstances, including that the House Judiciary Committee had initiated impeachment proceedings.

"Obviously there is a real concern as to whether there is full transparency", Walton said at a Tuesday court hearing in Washington about a request from BuzzFeed News to have the Justice Department release the report quickly under the Freedom of Information Act.

Many Republicans agree, including the top Republican on the intelligence committee, California Rep. Devin Nunes, who wrote a rare joint letter in March with House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff asking for "all materials, regardless of form or classification".

"All of that information at one point was classified, but the decision must have been made the public interest outweighs that".

While the president unleashed his personal grievances, his team seized on any exculpatory information in Barr's letter, hoping to define the conversation in advance, according to White House officials and outside advisers who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss private deliberations. Those include cases handed off or referred to federal prosecutors in Washington, New York and Virginia.

Conway accused the media of trying to divide Trump and staff.

Republicans argued at the time that it was necessary to obtain that information to maintain the integrity of the investigation. Aides have reportedly asked the special counsel's office if "the names of those who cooperated" will be redacted, but the Justice Department has "refused to elaborate".

His long-asserted accusation - though not supported by evidence - that his campaign was spied upon was given new life last week when Barr, testifying before Congress, said he thinks "spying did occur" in 2016.

The Justice Department did release information about the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices more than two years ago, even though Clinton wasn't charged. Barr signaled in his confirmation hearing in January that he would do things differently.

Fearing retribution from an angry president, some of those presidential confidants have been reaching out to the Justice Department to see whether they will be named as collaborators in Mr. Mueller's findings.
