According to federal prosecutor David Goodhand, the grand jury involved in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is not disbanded yet and is “continuing robustly,” The DailyMail reported Wednesday.
Goodhand revealed this information on Wednesday while in a hearing over whether the court filings associated with Mueller’s investigation should be unsealed
“Mueller officially completed his investigation when he turned over his report to Attorney General William Barr on Friday,” the DailyMail reported. “But he referred some matters he discovered to U.S. attorney’s offices.”
“Mueller found no evidence President Donald Trump’s campaign ‘conspired or coordinated’ with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.”
Wednesday’s hearing in which Goodhand was involved, was concerning a company that was owned by a foreign government but refused to turn over information to Mueller’s investigators. That case is now being handled by Washington prosecutors, according to the DailyMail.
While it’s as yet unclear whether the public will ever have a look at Mueller’s full report, Attorney General William Barr will release a summary of Mueller’s report to the public in “weeks, not months,” according to the DailyMail who cited a Justice Department official.
“Barr gave a quartet of House and Senate Judiciary Committee leaders a summary of the report on Sunday but has not yet given Americans a look at the most anticipated government document of the Trump presidency,” the DailyMail reported.
“Before letting the report leave his office, Barr must review Mueller’s findings in his Trump-Russia investigation and prepare a public version that masks classified information and signs of law enforcement sources and methods.”
It is as yet unknown if it will be Mueller’s own words that will be released to the public, or if the report will be rephrased by a Justice Department official, however many are pushing for the entire report, just as Mueller penned it, to be released to the public.
