DOJ: Mueller report to be released on Thursday- News – NHK WORLD – English

The US Justice Department said on Monday that Attorney General William Barr plans to release a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election on Thursday.

Barr said in a four-page letter summarizing the report on March 24 that the special counsel did not find that Trump and his associates conspired with Russia. The letter also said there was not enough evidence to establish that the president obstructed justice.

But media reports say that members of Mueller’s investigation team have complained that Barr’s letter does not accurately summarize the findings of the report.The media say it contains information that could deal a blow to the president.
