When Will Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia Report Be Released?
While deliberations over the report are made in Washington, here’s where we stand on the legal side of things. Federal law keeps Barr from releasing certain sensitive information obtained through grand jury testimony, according to
PBS Newshour, and a lot of Mueller’s findings rested on a few dozen grand jury indictments — including indictments of several high-profile Russian officials and senior members of the Trump campaign, such as Trump’s
former personal lawyer Michael Cohen,
campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and campaign advisor Rick Gates. It’s unclear how much of that information will need to be withheld under the law. Witness interviews and other information gathered outside of grand jury involvement isn’t sealed and could be released publicly.
