Judge orders review of unredacted Mueller Report, criticizes Barr

A federal judge issued an order on Thursday for the Justice Department to release to the court an unredacted version of the Mueller Report, which contains the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

…Walton said the court had “grave concerns about the objectivity of the process,” noting the timing of Barr’s public statements and discrepancies with Mueller’s findings. 

…The inconsistencies, Walton said, caused him to “seriously question whether Attorney General Barr made a calculated attempt to influence public discourse about the Mueller Report in favor of President Trump despite certain findings in the redacted version of the Mueller Report to the contrary.”

…Walton determined that the court should conduct a private review of the Mueller Report to validate the Department of Justice’s redactions and decide whether any information should be made public.
