Mueller Report Can't Be Released Because Every Page Has Confidential Information

The Department of Justice publicly defended Attorney General William Barr's decision to release a four-page letter on the contents of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election on Thursday.

The DOJ released a statement explaining that every page of the report, which is more than 400 pages in length, has sensitive grand jury information that has to be redacted before the report can be released.

The DOJ's defense comes after The New York Times and the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Mueller's team of prosecutors was frustrated with Barr's characterization of the report.
