Attorney General Bill Barr will hold a news conference Thursday morning at the Justice Department, at 9:30 a.m. He's expected to take questions about the release of the redacted Mueller report. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein will be there as well.

Yeah this is pretty transparently a spin job, since they'll be filling a huge knowledge vacuum. https://t.co/0FbmQAsoQc

Trump has also said he may do a press conference after. Obviously, if the report is released in the press conference, nobody will have had time to read it.
New: Once the redacted version of the Mueller report has been released to the public, the Justice Department plans to make available for review by a limited number of Members of Congress and their staff a copy of the report without certain redactions. per new court record.

Minutes after the Justice Department announced that Attorney General Barr will be holding a press conference tomorrow about the release of Mueller’s final report, just saw Secretary of State Mike Pompeo walk out of the Justice Department building. Never seen him here before.

I am wondering if what is released will be the marked-up redacted 400 pages or a rewrite by Barr. Also if the text will be searchable or if it will be one of those inert pdfs.
