Today, U.S. Attorney General William Barr reviewed the confidential report of the special counsel Robert Mueller investigation on the Russian intervention in the presidential elections in the United States. This is reported by the AP.
"According to people familiar with the process, Barr was preparing to publish his first summary of the investigation of Mueller," the statement reads.
It is reported that the document itself remains available only to a few officials of the Ministry of Justice, since the Prosecutor General intends to prepare the results of the "main conclusions" himself.
On Sunday, a summary of the investigation could be sent to Congress.
We recall that the former head of the FBI, Robert Mueller has been leading an investigation into possible ties between Donald Trump’s entourage and Moscow’s interference in the U.S. presidential election May 2017. In this case, Trump’s former adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to giving false testimony to the FBI about meetings with the Russian ambassador and made a deal with the investigation.
Russia got evidence gathered by Robert Mueller, the U.S. Special Counsel, and leaked it online trying to discredit his investigation of Moscow’s meddling in the U.S. politics, as The Guardian reported.
“A court filing by Mueller’s office said more than 1,000 files that it shared confidentially with attorneys for indicted Russian hackers later appeared to have been uploaded to a filesharing site and promoted by a Twitter account,” the agency states.
“We’ve got access to the Special Counsel Mueller’s probe database as we hacked Russian server with info from the Russian troll case. You can view all the files Mueller had about the IRA and Russian collusion. Enjoy the reading!” a tweet from the account said.
The tweet was made in October last year on @HackingRedstone. The account was deleted.
