President Donald Trump borrowed the "never forget" slogan from 9/11 remembrance to attack the investigation of his campaign ties to Russian Federation.
Opponents of Trump hope the report will answer longstanding questions about his ties to Russia, including what transpired at a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in NY involving his son, Donald Trump Jr, and a Russian lawyer who promised "dirt" on rival Hillary Clinton.
Attorney General Bill Barr has indicated he will hand over a restricted copy of the 400-page report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that edits out "sensitive" details sometime next week.
In his letter, Barr wrote that the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's associates during the campaign. "Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own", Barr said of the report.
In the synopsis, Barr wrote that he and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein examined the evidence and determined that they would not be able to make a case for obstruction.
Trump boasted in a tweet hours after Barr's summary that Mueller found "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION". It's here. The Mueller report will be released on Thursday.
However, Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice, instead presenting evidence on both sides of the argument. Barr, appearing before a congressional panel last week, identified four areas of information that would be redacted: grand jury information, information that would reveal intelligence sources and methods, information that could interfere with ongoing prosecution and information that implicates the privacy of "peripheral players".
Nunes had previously hinted on Fox News that he was submitting criminal referrals to the Justice Department against those he feels have unfairly - or criminally - gone after the president.
The Russia probe began on July 31, 2016, when the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign and the question of whether anyone on the Trump campaign was involved.
