Barr Says Report Out By ‘Mid-April, If Not Sooner.’

Here’s the letter where Barr lays out his timeline.

Reading the letter itself, Barr lays out four categories of redactions. They are not unreasonable on their face, certainly not for the version of the report to be released to the public. But of course the devil is in the details.

What is unclear to me is whether these redactions will apply to the version that is released to Congress alone. Most of these do not make sense for the version that is released to Congress. Indeed, I don’t think any redactions are required or appropriate for a limited distribution to key members of the relevant committees. So this is a point that still needs to be clarified.
