William Barr has pledged to deliver the redacted Mueller Report to Congress early this afternoon. While there is talk that the redactions will be light, Democrats are still concerned about the information that will be concealed.
One of Robert Mueller’s witnesses, ex-Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, says they have nothing to worry about. Cohen and his lawyer, Lanny Davis, have promised to fill Congress in on the info withheld from Barr’s report.
Lanny Davis tweeted, “It does not matter how Barr redacted the Mueller Report. Michael Cohen has 7 days, 70 hours and 100 pages what Team Mueller knows and can fill in the bulk of the redactions. Nice try, Mr. Trump. We will tell it all.”

Cohen responded to Davis’ tweet, “Soon I will be ready to address the American people again…tell it all…and tell it myself.”

Trump’s ex-lawyer has been a significant thorn in his side since he was arrested by the FBI. Formerly a key confidant, Cohen now stands as a witness to many of the president’s alleged misdeeds.
Earlier this month, Cohen requested to speak with Congress one more time. The former lawyer said he was able to recover a hard drive that had more damaging information on the president. Cohen’s lawyers felt he had more to provide to the House, writing, “For him to surrender in 30 days would be a detriment to committees search for truth, as well as a miscarriage of justice.”
Cohen’s offer to shed light on the Mueller Report could be just the ticket he needs to avoid prison time, or at least delay it further.
