US Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report on Russia’s role in the 2016 US presidential election on Thursday.
The release of a long-awaited report, which is nearly 450 pages long and filled with large chunks of blacked-out text, was a watershed moment in Donald Trump’s tumultuous presidency.
Ahead of its release, Barr – whose Department of Justice oversaw the investigation – delivered a spirited defence of the Republican president and his actions, infuriating Democrats.
Mueller did not make a conclusion on whether Trump had committed obstruction of justice, but did not exonerate him either.
