(Newser) – President Trump may not be too surprised by what's in the soon-to-be-released Mueller report. Turns out the Justice Department has discussed it several times with White House lawyers, in effect helping them plan a counter-attack against Robert Mueller's findings, insiders tell the New York Times. Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr has announced a 9:30am Thursday press conference before the redacted report comes out; Congress is expected to get a version with fewer redactions by around noon, per the AP. President Trump says he might hold his own presser about the Mueller report on Thursday, ABC News reports. (Read about Trump advisors' "telling activity" over the weekend.)
