‘WEEKS, NOT MONTHS’ BEFORE DOJ RELEASES PUBLIC VERSION OF MUELLER REPORT

The Justice Department plans to take “weeks” and “not months” to provide a version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report to Congress and the public.

A Justice Department official told news outlets Tuesday that there are no plans to send the report to the White House before Congress.

The final report will likely be scrubbed of any grand jury information or anything involving classified information.

Congressional Democrats have ramped up pressure on Attorney General William Barr to provide Congress the full Mueller report, which was summarized in a letter to lawmakers on Sunday. Many Republicans have also said they would like the report to be provided to Congress and made public.

Mueller’s report exonerated President Trump and his campaign of collusion with Russia. Mueller deferred a decision on possible obstruction of justice to the Justice Department. Barr said in his letter Sunday that after consulting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the DOJ’s lawyers, the agency would not pursue an obstruction case, mainly on the grounds that there was no underlying crime, such as an election-related conspiracy, to obstruct.
