What you won't see in the redacted Mueller report

A federal judge on Tuesday said that Attorney General Bill Barr has contributed to public concern about the redactions he plans to make in the report from special counsel Robert Mueller released to the public, according to reports from CNN and Politico.

Mr. Trump has spent recent days trying to soften the ground before Thursday's release, saying what matters is Attorney General William Barr's top-line findings that there was no conspiracy with Russian Federation to subvert the 2016 presidential election and not enough evidence to pursue an obstruction of justice case.

"They got asked questions and told the truth and now they're anxious the wrath will follow", one former White House official said. "You put hundreds of witnesses under oath and you throw all these subpoenas around - if there's nothing controversial or embarrassing that's disclosed, that would be kind of surprising".

"I heard it's going to come out on Thursday", Trump said of the report.

They have painted House Democrats' investigations as partisan overreach and have targeted news outlets and individual reporters they say have promoted the collusion story.

Indeed, all of Washington will be studying the report.

Attorney General William Barr smiles as he walks outside of the Department of Justice in Washington on April 16, 2019. The department has refused to offer any solace.

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

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, has maintained a consistent line. "No Collusion - No Obstruction!" he tweeted Tuesday.

The report is expected in the morning, igniting a day of study and reaction.

Bookmakers were offering odds on how Mr. Trump would react, such as how many times he will use "exonerate" or "exonerated".

During an interview with KSTP in Minnesota on Monday, Trump made his first comments on the Mueller report since the announcement that a redacted version would be published later this week.

As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted Special Counsel report now expected on April 18, President Donald Trump stepped up his attacks in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russian Federation, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath.

"It just may be a bad news cycle", the source said. "In 400 pages, there will probably be a few things".

Mr. Mueller officially concluded his investigation late last month and submitted the confidential report to Mr. Barr.

"Just call it The Barr Report".

Congress frequently receives classified documents and briefings, and Democrats say there is no reason the Mueller report should be any different. But some Republicans defending Barr are also citing precedent, saying it is appropriate to keep at least some of the information from Congress and the public.

"In other words, [Barr] thinks as a matter of law a president can't obstruct justice, which is a very wild theory to which most people do not agree", Nadler said.

"There was no firing of Bob Mueller, there was no sealing off of his office - that happened in Watergate - there was complete, as far as we know, cooperation with the investigation, thousands of documents turned over to the investigation, the counsel to the president testified for 30 hours", Starr said. "It's about agenda-setting", said Julian E. Zelizer, a politics professor at Princeton University.
