The Department of Justice said on Monday that Barr plans to release the redacted version of the almost 400-page report to Congress and the public on Thursday morning.
The report, which runs to almost 400 pages without exhibits, has been the subject of heated debate since Attorney-General William Barr notified lawmakers last month that Mueller had completed his 22-month investigation. Barr provided a four-page letter to Congress two days later that detailed Mueller's "principal conclusions". In that letter to Congress, Barr said Mueller's investigation did not establish that members of Trump's election campaign conspired with Russian Federation. Instead, Mueller presented evidence on both sides of the obstruction question.
Barr's letter also said the Special Counsel withheld judgment on whether Trump tried to obstruct justice during the investigation.
Barr said he identified four areas of the report that he believed should be redacted including grand jury material and information the intelligence community believes would reveal intelligence sources and methods.
Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump's insistence last week in congressional testimony that his campaign was spied upon, although he told lawmakers he had so far found no proof.

I'm still trying to enjoy it and figure out that I actually won it . "Positives", he said , when asked what he took from the week. The outpouring of excitement over Tiger's win felt like it was the late 1990s again, back when Puffy's shiny suits were the move.
Justice Department regulations give Barr, a Trump appointee and the top USA law enforcement officer, broad authority to decide what to release and what to withhold from the report.
Barr will send the report after lawyers from the Justice Department and the office of the special counsel finish redacting portions of the roughly 400-page document.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Barr's review of Mueller's report "condescending" and demanded the attorney general release the special counsel's full report. "Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own", Barr said of the report. "These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others!"
"In other words, (Barr) thinks as a matter of law a president can't obstruct justice, which is a very wild theory to which most people do not agree", Nadler said.
"The House Judiciary committee will subpoena it", he said.
