While Trump's targeting of the Mueller investigation is nothing new, the tweets come just hours before Attorney General William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrAppeals court sides with Trump on federal execution policy Barr tells prosecutors to consider coronavirus risk when determining bail: report Decentralized leadership raises questions about Trump coronavirus response MORE is slated to release a redacted version of Mueller's full report to the public.

Though Barr said Trump has been cleared by Mueller on any suspicion of coordinating with the Kremlin in 2016 and that the report does not contain proof of obstruction of justice, the report is expected to contain new evidence that could be embarrassing for the White House. 

Barr is set to hold a 9:30 a.m. press conference Thursday morning before Congress will receive a redacted version of the report about 11 a.m. The rollout has sparked a firestorm of criticism from Democrats who said the administration was trying to spin the report before its release. 

“This is outrageous. The AG is supposed to be an independent beacon of truth and justice. Instead, Barr is debasing the rule of law, degrading our democratic institutions, and decimating any trust the American people have left in this Administration. #ReleaseTheReport,” tweeted Rep.
