Attorney General William P. Barr is expected to release special counsel Robert Muellers report to Congress and the public on Thursday morning, a Justice Department official said Monday.
The nearly 400-page report is the most anticipated political report in the last 20 years as both Republicans and Democrats scramble to defend or attack President Trump in the wake of its release.
Mr. Barr summarized the special counsels findings last month in a four-page letter to Congress. He wrote Mr. Mueller concluded there wasnt evidence to indicate Mr. Trump or members of his campaign conspired with Russia to win the White House. Mr. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also concluded there was not enough evidence Mr. Trump obstructed the Russia probe, a decision Mr. Muellers team declined to make.
Although Mr. Barrs summary apparently clears the president of the most damning charge, collusion, there is still much debate over the obstruction issue. The attorney general said there is not enough evidence to charge Mr. Trump with obstruction. But he also did not give him a pass, saying the report does not conclude he committed a crime but does not exonerate him.
Nonetheless, Mr. Trump has already claimed total exoneration based on the four-page summary.

Lets all run around like chickens with heads cut off !!!
Watch for DJTs Tweets for a gauge of the content, as I think it will be read by the WH prior to release.
The RATs are grasping for any little piece of straw they can grab onto. The president holds the ace cards and they know. Theyre in dread of the day the president drops the hammer on all of them!
Weeping and wailing to follow...
I have the feeling that I am going to burst a spleen laughing when it exposes tons and tons of misdeeds by the dhimmicrats...all this over the top hype and hyperbole and it ends up hurting the demonrats. Rachel madcows face will be epic
“Lets all run around like chickens with heads cut off!!!”
I hope this doesn’t turn into another cassowary thread
Exactly, and lots of it.
My hope is that they release everything EXCEPT the dirt on Democrats. When they demand the full info and have a cow over it then Trump spills the beans. Heh heh.
CNN anchors will say we’re talking down to them.

Maundy Thursday is now Mueller Thursday.
President Trump is able to claim total exoneration based upon his own knowledge of his actions!
“the report does not conclude he committed a crime but does not exonerate him”
Aren’t those the only two possibilities? I men, if the report showed evidence that he committed a crime, then he committed a crime. In the absence of such evidence, then no crime was committed.
There isn’t a third option that states: “We think he committed a crime, but since there’s no evidence, he must be really really good at it.
Gimme an effin break.
Mueller’s “Report” must start with an explanation of what he was authorized to investigate and by what authority, presumably Rosenstein’s general appointment letter plus Rosenstein’s “scope clarification” memo (that Mueller requested when he realized he was exceeding his mandate).
Hitherto Rosenstein’s “scope clarification” memo has been treated as the more secret than plans for the atomic bomb in 1945.
Dollars to donuts the “scope” part is redacted to non-existence, yet the entirety of the Report will give away the implied scope. Going to be interesting to see how they dodge around this.
The disgraceful #fakenews media shows absolutely no respect towards our Country’s President!
“The attorney general said there is not enough evidence to charge Mr. Trump with obstruction. But he also did not give him a pass, saying the report does not conclude he committed a crime but does not exonerate him.”
Uh... If you don’t have evidence to charge with a crime then you’re what - ‘not guilty for now’? Or is that ‘we’re still making s### up, so he’s still pending guilty’? I guess we’re ALL guilty until proven innocent?
