WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the special counsel’s report on Russian election interference and Donald Trump’s campaign (all times local):
President Donald Trump says he may hold a press conference after the release of the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Thursday.

Attorney General William Barr will hold a news conference Thursday morning as the report is set to be released. Trump says, “Maybe I’ll do one after that, we’ll see.”
The Justice Department says Attorney General William Barr will hold a news conference Thursday morning on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
The news conference will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Justice Department in Washington. Barr will be joined by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The Justice Department has said a redacted version of Mueller’s report will be released Thursday.
Mueller officially concluded his investigation late last month and submitted a nearly 400-page report to Barr.
After nearly two years of waiting, America will get some answers straight from Robert Mueller.
The Justice Department on Thursday is expected to release a redacted version of the special counsel’s report on Russian election interference and Donald Trump’s campaign, opening up months, if not years, of fights over what the document means in a deeply divided country.
The nearly 400-page report is expected to reveal what Mueller uncovered about ties between the Trump campaign and Russia that fell short of criminal conduct. It will also lay out the special counsel’s conclusions about formative episodes in Trump’s presidency, including his firing of FBI Director James Comey and his efforts to undermine the Russia investigation publicly and privately.
