Dems 'Have to Be Very Careful': 'Outnumbered' Reacts to Mueller Report Release Date
Redacted version to be released Thursday.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's much-anticipated Russia report is set to be released to the public and Congress on Thursday morning, the Justice Department announced.
A Justice Department spokeswoman told Fox News on Monday the report would be made available -- with redactions -- Thursday morning to lawmakers and to the public. The news comes despite mounting calls from Democrats to first release the report to Congress without redactions.
On "Outnumbered" Monday, Capri Cafaro said she expects some Democrats and Trump adversaries to claim that the redacted portions of the report are "hiding" potential evidence of Trump-Russia collusion or obstruction of justice.
"The whole thing's just political theater at this point," Kennedy said, warning that could be harmful for 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.
She explained that they "have to be very careful" about what attacks and investigations they launch against the president, as previous allegations of collusion and obstruction have not been borne out.
"You can't always have a subjective take on an objective source of information," Kennedy said.
Cafaro argued that the entire justice process has been "damaged," accusing both Trump and Democrats of using the Russia investigation as a "political tool."
Kennedy said that many Democrats apparently assumed that the Mueller report was going to be "a gift basket of impeachable offenses," but Attorney General William Barr's summary of Mueller's findings essentially shot that hope down.
