Redacted Mueller report, severe spring storms: 5 things to know Thursday - 04-18


Attorney General William Barr plans to release the final report of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation on Thursday. Mueller's investigation probed links between Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign. The 400-page document will be transmitted to Congress and made public at roughly the same time. Its release has been anticipated since last month when the attorney general disclosed a summary of its major conclusions: Mueller found no evidence that Trump conspired with Russia, and he did not conclude whether obstruction had occurred, according to Barr. Barr also said he would remove four types of information from the report and color-code the redactions to signal the reasons for secrecy. And while Trump thinks the report should be made public, he suggested that its disclosure might not lift the cloud the investigation cast over his administration.
