Trump staffers brace for Mueller report’s release

U.S. & World

(NBC News) Sources tell NBC News that some former and current White House staffers who cooperated with Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and President Donald Trump are worried that they may be exposed in his report that’s set to be released Thursday. 

The president’s outside legal team reportedly met today to finalize their strategy for the release of the report, and a White House meeting is said to be planned for all relevant staff members in the coming days.

As for those staffers who are reportedly concerned about what’s in the report: NBC News learned some of their lawyers asked the Department of Justice (DOJ) whether their names would be redacted, or if it would be clear who said what; however, sources say the DOJ refused to elaborate. 

According to a four-page summary from Attorney General William Barr, Mueller did not find criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, but could not draw a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice.

Barr ultimately concluded that the nearly 400-page report did not contain enough evidence to support obstruction charges.
