Robert Mueller’s report on Trump-Russia investigation will be released later today, and will shed light on Russia’s role in the US election of 2016. As Mr. Trump is going for re-election, the report, some sections of which are allegedly to be blacked-out, will definitely cause a new political fight.
The release of the report may become a turning-point in Donald Trump’s presidency, as it promises new details about Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia and the obstruction of justice by the president.
The Attorney General, William Barr, and the Deputy Attorney General, Ron Rosenstein, who appointed Mr. Mueller as a special counsel, are to hold a conference at 9:30 a.m. (13:30 GMT) on Thursday to discuss the report. The copy of the report will be at the Capitol Hill between 11 a.m. and noon, say the officials.
Mueller has already charged 3 Russian companies and 34 people, including officials close to Trump, such as Paul Manafort, his former campaign chairman, Michael Cohen, personal lawyer, and Michael Flynn, national security adviser.
Yet, it is concluded that Trump did not commit the obstruction of justice. The New York Times reported on Wednesday that White House lawyers discussed the conclusions in Mueller’s report with US Justice Department, assisting to prepare the release of the report.
