Special Counsel Robert Mueller's much-anticipated Russian Federation report is set to be released to the public and Congress on Thursday morning, the Justice Department announced.

DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec confirmed to TPM the timeline of the expected release of the report.

Attorney General Bill Barr has indicated he will hand over a restricted copy of the 400-page report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that edits out "sensitive" details sometime next week.

In a follow-up tweet, the president said there shouldn't have been an investigation at all.

Barr also wrote that Mueller presented evidence "on both sides" about whether Trump obstructed justice by acting to impede the inquiry, but he did not draw a conclusion one way or the other. In it, Barr said the "special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election".

Israeli spacecraft falls short in attempt to reach moon
The mission has cost about US$100m ($149 million) and has paved the way for future low-priced lunar exploration. Khan, a philanthropist and chairman of SpaceIL, put up $40 million of the project´s $100 million budget.

Democrats in Congress have demanded that Barr provide them with Mueller's full report - and all the evidence behind it. But he has said he will redact certain portions for reasons including protecting secret grand jury information, intelligence-gathering sources and methods, information relating to ongoing cases and the privacy of "peripheral third parties" who were not charged. In total, 34 indictments have been issued due to the investigation including members of Trump's campaign and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

Turner made the comment on "America's Newsroom" Monday, saying confidence returned because "it says that there was no collusion and we know certainly that we did not have the aspect of the Trump campaign doing that". However, with Barr In charge of the color-coded redactions, I fully expect his opening salvo will be a "rainbow of obfuscation", a "technicolor coverup"...

"To deny the Judiciary Committee and the Congress the knowledge of what's in parts of the Mueller report is not proper", Nadler said.

It's here. The Mueller report will be released on Thursday.

Since those findings were announced, congressional Democrats have been sharply critical of Barr's handling of the Mueller report, accusing the attorney general of soft-pedaling the findings to protect the president.
