Here we go again: Redacted version of Mueller Report to be made public ‘within a week’

Attorney General William Barr has announced his intention of releasing a redacted version of the Mueller Report into Russian interference in the 2016 elections “within a week” — setting the stage for another storm of media hype and anticipation.

  • Barr’s announcement came Tuesday, April 9, 2019, but it’s not clear if he is counting weekdays or not — or even being exact in his timeframe.
  • If he’s not counting weekdays, then, in theory, Friday, April 12, would be the only opportunity for a “Friday night dump” of the report since a calendar week would “expire” April 16, a Tuesday.
  • However, if he’s only referring to work days — or just not being exact — then Friday, April 19 is a possibility.
  • Mueller himself opted to send the report to Congress on a Friday afternoon (March 22) with Barr sending a letter summarizing the report to Congress March 24.
  • Barr could, of course, also change his release schedule or opt to release the report in the middle of the week, so by no means does this mean April 12 and 19 are the only possible release dates.
