With Mueller’s work concluded, what will the people be told?


Share post:

Attorney General William P. Barr has to decide how much to tell Congress or the public now that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has turned in the final report of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Under Justice Department regulations, Barr can decide that public interest demands full disclosure, or he can hew to rules that protect privacy for people who are investigated and not charged. Although Barr has the authority, President Trump, his lawyers and congressional Democrats will also join the fight over transparency or privacy.
Some past investigations of whether presidents or top officials broke the law led to public reports revealing every little detail. The Starr Report on Whitewater and President Bill Clinton’s sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky was a best-selling book. Other cases led to convictions but kept the rest of the findings under wraps.
