Attorney General William Barr plans to release a public version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report within the next few weeks, according to a Justice Department official that spoke with Reuters on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump bashed the “Mainstream Media” in a tweet on Tuesday after a media summary of Mueller’s report that was saying that there is not enough evidence to conclude that his presidential campaign colluded with Russia.
The President resurrected his attacks on news outlets and journalists, calling them the “enemy of the people” and the “opposition party,” while accusing reporters of knowing that the Russia investigation would not turn up anything against him.
“The Mainstream Media is under fire and being scorned all over the World as being corrupt and FAKE. For two years they pushed the Russian Collusion Delusion when they always knew there was No Collusion,” he tweeted. “They truly are the Enemy of the People and the Real Opposition Party!”
The Republicans celebrated the conclusion of special counsel’s investigation over the weekend, while taking aim at the news media for reporting that some argued should result in a “reckoning” for journalists.
CNN’s Brian Stelter, however, urged critics to not blame individual journalists for mistakes made in covering the story.
“Don’t be fooled by the partisans who cherry pick the worst mistakes of individual journalists or the craziest ideas from commentators and claim that’s the entire media,” Stelter said. “It’s not.”
