Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Monday that a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report is expected to be released on Thursday morning.

What to watch: The report is expected to be around 400 pages, not including underlying evidence. Attorney General Bill Barr said he would color code redacted information that falls into 4 categories, and that each redaction will include explanatory notes.

Those categories include:

  • Material subject to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure (6e) that cannot be made public.
  • Material the intelligence community identifies as potentially compromising sensitive sources and methods.
  • Material that could affect other ongoing matters, including those that the special counsel has referred to other department offices.
  • Information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.

Barr told a House Appropriations subcommittee that once the redacted version of the report is sent to Congress, he would be "glad to talk to [House Judiciary] chairman Nadler and [Senate Judiciary] chairman Graham as to whether they feel they need more information and see if there’s a way we could accommodate that."

  • Barr said that he doesn't believe he has the latitude to release grand jury material and that he doesn't intend to ask a judge to unseal it. He added, however, that Nadler is free to make the request if he wants.
