Attorney General William Barr will hold a news conference at 9:30 a.m. (1330 GMT) on Thursday to discuss the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential race, the Justice Department said on Wednesday. Thursday's irregular timeline for Barr's conference and the Mueller release certainly doesn't help that appearance.
The Justice Department announced Wednesday evening that it would release the redacted Mueller report between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. Thursday, approximately 90 minutes after Barr holds a press conference introducing it.

Barr set off a political firestorm after he released a four-page summary of the special counsel's report to Congress, in which he indicated Mueller had not found evidence of criminal collusion or conspiracy between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election. It is sure to be watched closely by President Trump, an avid TV viewer whose relationship with his attorney general will nearly certainly be colored by Mueller's findings and what Barr says about them. "In his letter, [U.S. Attorney General William] Barr said the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and Trump associates during the campaign".
Pettypiece made sure to point out that Barr "has said he is planning to withhold certain parts of it".
"There was a case decided one week ago in which the court of appeals in the District of Columbia held that the court does not have inherent authority in the public interests of whatever reasons to release grand jury material".
