In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Attorney General Bill Barr's redacted version of the Mueller report that is expected to be released on Thursday is "not necessarily going to be the final product."
"It isn't up to the attorney general, who has said basically that the president is above the law, and the rest, so he's there to redact whatever he wants," Pelosi said.
CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, CNN: It appears that the attorney general is going to finally send to the Congress the redacted version of Robert Mueller's investigation and his nearly 400-page report. What do you expect to see, and you must have been having conversations, how redacted do you think it will be, and also do you think you'll be able to accept it?
SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: Well, first of all, we don't know, and that's why we said show us the report. For the attorney general though to say you'll use my own judgment about what I redact, that's not necessarily going to be the final product. The American people deserve the truth. They need to know the truth.
There was an assault made on our elections by the Russians. All of our intelligence community in high confidence have said that the Russians tried to disrupt our election. That is the heartbeat of our democracy. We have to find out what happened so it doesn't happen again. And it isn't up to the attorney general, who has said basically that the president is above the law, and the rest, so he's there to redact whatever he wants. Well, let's just see what he puts forth -- we can't make a judgment about something that you haven't seen yet, and so we look forward to seeing it. We have very smart people who will be reading it from the standpoint of our committees and the rest, and -- and we'll go step to determine -- it depends on what is in there and how redacted it is.
