Attorney General Barr to release *redacted* copy of Mueller report in mid-April

Editor’s Note: Other news sources report that Trump will be allowed to assert executive privilege but hasn’t said that he will. Executive privilege is not typical with special counsel investigations.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General William Barr plans to issue a redacted copy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s nearly 400-page investigative report into Russian interference in the 2016 election by mid-April, he revealed in a letter to lawmakers on Friday.

“Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own,” Barr wrote in the letter to the top Democrats and Republicans on the Senate and House Judiciary committees.

He said he is willing to appear before both committees to testify about Mueller‘s report on May 1 and May 2.
