The 448-page report on the Russia investigation from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is finally out. But we can’t read the whole report — lawyers for the Justice Department and the special counsel’s office have gone through every page to redact sensitive information.
Public faith in the investigation depends in part on how transparent the government is with the report. Here’s a look at how much we can see — and how much we can’t.
More than one-third of the report’s pages contain at least one blacked-out word. Most of the pages have no redactions. Some are almost entirely blacked out. Here’s what an unredacted page looks like.
Officials redacted information based on four categories:
Grand jury evidence, which is subject to secrecy rules
Classified material from U.S. intelligence agencies or allies
Information about ongoing investigations
Details that could unfairly infringe on the privacy and damage the reputations of peripheral third parties
Here is every single page.
