Why Barr Can’t Whitewash the Mueller Report
WASHINGTON — Comments made Tuesday by William Barr, President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, suggest that the report of special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Russian meddling investigation might not become public in the way many have been expecting.
At his confirmation hearing, Barr repeatedly told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he’s committed to making as much information public as he can about Mueller’s probe. But he also suggested that what is eventually released might not be a redacted version of Mueller’s report.
Barr noted that the special counsel regulations require Mueller to submit a confidential report to the Justice Department. The rules specify, “At the conclusion of the Special Counsel’s work, he or she shall provide the Attorney General with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the Special Counsel.”
