Special Counsel's Report: Can Congress Get it? [Updated April 9, 2019]   [open pdf - 778KB]

From the Document: "After this Sidebar was originally published, the Attorney General reported to Congress on March 24, 2019 that the Special Counsel had submitted a report concerning 'allegations that members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, and others associated with it, conspired with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, or sought to obstruct related federal investigations.' In a subsequent letter, the Attorney General indicated that a redacted version of the report could be made available 'by mid-April, if not sooner.' The letter identified four categories of information that would be redacted from the report: (1) grand jury material; (2) 'material the intelligence community identifies as potentially compromising sensitive sources and methods; (3) material that could affect other ongoing matters, including those that the Special Counsel has referred to other Department offices; and (4) information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.'"
