A Democratic aide told The Hill the Department of Justice won't send the redacted report to Congress until 11 a.m., well after Barr's press conference.

The report, which comes from Mueller's nearly two-year-long investigation, is expected to include the special counsel's findings into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Barr said in a four-page summary of Mueller's report sent to Congress last month that Mueller determined there was no coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow. However, he wrote that the special counsel did not reach such a conclusion on possible obstruction of justice.

The report released Thursday is expected to be heavily redacted. Barr has said he will not include some information, including grand jury materials, in the public version of the report.
