Video: Attorney General William Barr’s Mueller Report Release News Conference
Speaking at a Thursday news conference with reporters, Attorney General William Barr said President Donald Trump did not exert executive privilege over any information included in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
He said the White House counsel reviewed a redacted version of the report before Trump decided not to invoke executive privilege.
Barr said “no material has been redacted based on executive privilege.”
The AG said special counsel Robert Mueller’s report recounts 10 episodes involving President Donald Trump that were investigated as potential acts of criminal obstruction of justice.
Barr says Mueller did not reach a “prosecutorial judgment” and that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded the evidence was not sufficient to establish the president committed an offense.
Lawyers for President Donald Trump reviewed the final redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before its public release. Barr said Trump’s lawyers “were not permitted to make, and did not request, any redactions.”
The redacted copy of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative report will be delivered to Congress at 11 a.m. ET.
