Nadler readying subpoenas for Friday delivery to get unredacted Mueller report

Former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller

This decision could affect the disclosure of the grand jury material in the Mueller report; based on the ruling, Democrats would likely have to start the impeachment process before asking a judge to release grand jury information. But with Mueller not reaching a decision on the obstruction issue, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided no obstruction charges against Trump were warranted. The dozen-plus people in question cooperated with the Mueller probe at the time, but now worry about fallout from Trump and his cronies if it is revealed that they gave the investigation harmful information about the president.

"I heard it's going to come out on Thursday", Trump said of the report. Was firing James Comey obstruction of justice? But we do know, from both the special counsel's indictments of 12 "Russian intelligence officers" and other court filings (as well as through the work of news organizations and Congress' intelligence committees) that Russia did attempt to influence the 2016 USA presidential election.

Democrats are especially eager to see what Mr. Mueller says about obstruction of justice after the special counsel specifically said the report was not an exoneration.

The Congress members may be using as a foundation for their investigation the statements of former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who was convicted of lying.

Congressional Democrats could move forward quickly - as early as Monday - with subpoenas to obtain Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full report on Russian interference in the USA 2016 election, after Attorney General William Barr releases a version on Thursday that may have significant portions blacked out. McGahn apparently was not debriefed by the White House after his meetings with the special counsel's investigators. "Was criticizing the Mueller investigation obstruction of justice?"

"The greatest Scam in political history", he tweeted Tuesday.

He has told confidants in recent days that he was certain the full report would back up his claims of vindication but was also convinced the media would manipulate the findings in an effort to damage him, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. The White House likely will claim final vindication.

Barr said he would examine the details of how the FBI's counterintelligence investigation began.

A former White House official told NBC News, "They got asked questions and told the truth and now they're anxious the wrath will follow".

And that's all we know for sure. This crime was all made up.

Barr may have been referring to a surveillance warrant the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained in the fall of 2016 to monitor the communications of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, who has not been charged with any wrongdoing.

Democratic officials, for their part, want to find out what Trump campaign staffers did when/if they found out about Russian interference in the election. He later amended his remarks, saying that while he is "not saying that improper surveillance occurred", he is "concerned about it and looking into it".

Barr, who has broad authority to decide how much of the report to release, has promised to be as transparent as possible, but told lawmakers he would redact four categories of content: secret grand jury information, intelligence-gathering sources and methods, information relating to active cases and information could affect the privacy of "peripheral third parties" who were not charged. "Just in time for Easter, it will be a insane quilt of colors created to cover up key facts and, nearly more important, break the flow - and diminish the power - of the Mueller Report as written", tweeted Elizabeth de la Vega, who served as a federal prosecutor for more than two decades.

Mr Barr said he would redact information related to investigations connected to the Mr Mueller probe that were still underway. That probe was prompted by former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos' contacts with Russian intermediaries, including a Maltese professor who told the young aide that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of emails.
