An unnamed Department of Justice Official told CNN, NBC News and Reuters Tuesday that it will take “weeks, not months” for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to be released publicly. All of the outlets referred to the public report as “a version” of Mueller’s report.

Before the release, Attorney General William Barr needs to review the report for redactable material like the details from grand jury proceedings. Barr released a brief summary of the report on Sunday.

Reuters further reported that the unnamed Justice Department official claimed to have revealed the rough timeline to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on a phone call this week.

Per Reuters: “The official said there is no plan to share an advanced copy of the report with the White House.”
