Republicans who were in the House majority past year, obtained documents related to the beginnings of the Russian Federation investigation, arguing that officials were biased against then-candidate Mr Trump.

He unleashed a series of tweets Monday focusing on the previously released summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's conclusions - including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump again misrepresented - produced by Attorney General William Barr.

Portions of the report being released by the Justice Department will be redacted to protect grand jury material, sensitive intelligence, matters that could affect ongoing investigations and damage to the privacy rights of third parties, the attorney general has said.

The Justice Department has announced that they plan to release a redacted version of the Mueller report this Thursday.

Barr, a Trump appointee as the country's top law enforcement official, said last week he believes that top American intelligence agencies spied on the Trump campaign. He later amended his remarks, saying that while he is "not saying that improper surveillance occurred", he is "concerned about it and looking into it".

Jerrold Nadler, has said he is prepared to issue subpoenas "very quickly" for the full report on Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign if it is released with blacked-out sections. One source described it as "breakdown level anxiety".

Bream noted that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said on CNN Sunday that the House Judiciary Committee must be given the full, unredacted report and underlying documents, and the committee will decide what is released to the public. Both "sides" will continue to "spin" the Mueller report in a way that benefits their positions and deflects the other side's argument. He said Democrats are "free to go to court" themselves, and Nadler has said he is ready to do so.

Fearing retribution from an angry president, some of those presidential confidants have been reaching out to the Justice Department to see whether they will be named as collaborators in Mr. Mueller's findings. "I would hope the government is going to be as transparent as it can be", Walton said. "The fact of the matter is we should see and judge for ourselves and Congress should judge whether the president obstructed justice or not, and the public ultimately".

"It may be that Mueller decided not to prosecute for obstruction of justice for various reasons - that there wasn't proof beyond a reasonable doubt of some things. They'd rather just try to pit us all against each other and the president against current and former and future staff". The report could provide new information that could prompt further investigations or even consideration of impeachment proceedings, a tricky political calculation since Mueller did not conclude there was collusion or obstruction.

The news comes despite mounting calls from Democrats to first release the report to Congress without redactions.

Barr said he will redact information related to investigations connected to the Mueller probe that are still underway. The extent of his redactions is not known.
