Washington, .- The Government of the US president, Donald Trump, will allow some congressmen see the report of special prosecutor Robert Mueller on the Russian plot, which will be published censored on Thursday, without some of these editions.
The Justice Department announced in a court document that it will “make available to a limited number of congressmen a copy of the special prosecutor’s report without certain editions” once the censored text has been made public.
In the court document, derived from the case against Roger Stone, former counselor of Trump, the Department of Justice did not specify which parts of the report that will have access to the congressmen will maintain censorship.
He did clarify that he will lift the editions with regard to the charges against Stone.
He also noted in the court document that he does not intend to deliver this second version of the report to the congressmen, only to make it accessible for consultation.
The Attorney General, William Barr, will make public this Thursday morning the report of Mueller for the Americans, who for the first time will be able to read excerpts of the investigation that has kept Washington in suspense during 22 months on the supposed ties between Russia and the campaign in 2016 of Trump.
Afterwards, Barr will submit to questions from journalists to explain the report.
Mueller concluded his investigation and gave Barr his report on March 22.
Two days later, Barr posted a four-page summary of the report highlighting Mueller’s main conclusion: neither Trump nor anyone in his entourage conspired with the Kremlin to win the 2016 White House election of Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Mueller, however, did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump would have obstructed Justice in his alleged attempts to end the investigation.
The Democratic opposition has been asking Barr for weeks to publish the report in its entirety, without any type of censorship.
Mueller’s investigation began in May 2017 and led to the indictment of 34 people, including six Trump ex-advisors – Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos, Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn and Stone – and 26 Russians.
Trump has described the investigation as a “witch hunt” even after the conclusions were known. (EFE)
