What's missing? The clues to Barr's 1,000 Mueller report redactions
Nearly 40% of the 448 pages have parts blacked out but that content - including remarks by Trump - is not a total mysteryThe attorney general, William Barr, made redactions under four categories: harm to ongoing matters; grand jury evidence; investigative techniques; and personal privacy. Photograph: Eric Baradat/AFP/Getty ImagesThe Mueller report contains tantalising details of Trump campaign dealings with Russia and of the president's possible attempts to obstruct justice. But much of it is blacked out. Nearly 40% of the pages in the document contain at least one redaction, totalling nearly 1,000 in all. In some parts, entire sections have disappeared.The redactions fall into four categories. The largest is "harm to ongoing matters". This refers to likely future trials, including that of Trump's friend and ally Roger Stone, who is due in court in November.The second-biggest category is "grand jury": material that might be used in ongoing legal matters. Information has also been removed which could compromise FBI "investigative techniques". The fourth category is "personal privacy". It concerns individuals peripheral to the core investigation by the special counsel, Robert Mueller.Trump's attorney general, William Barr, will release a less-redacted version of the report to Congress. A close reading of the 448-page report made public offers clues as to what is missing, including remarks made by Trump about sensitive matters. 1\.

Elizabeth Warren becomes first 2020 candidate to call for Trump's impeachment
The Massachusetts senator is the most senior Democrat to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against TrumpWarren's remarks make her one of the most prominent Democratic voices to advocate for impeachment. Photograph: Yuri Gripas/ReutersElizabeth Warren on Friday became the most senior Democrat, and the first 2020 presidential candidate, to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump following the release of the special counsel's report on Russian interference in the 2016 US election and the Trump campaign. "To ignore a president's repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways," the Democratic senator from Massachusetts said in a statement Friday, one day after the release of a redacted version of a 448-page summary of Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation."The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," Warren said. Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: "Congress has authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice."

Trump approval drops 3 points to 2019 low after release of Mueller report: Reuters/Ipsos poll
The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. In his report, Mueller said his investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign had coordinated with Russians. The poll found that 50 percent of Americans agreed that "Trump or someone from his campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election," and 58 percent agreed that the president "tried to stop investigations into Russian influence on his administration." Forty percent said they thought Trump should be impeached, while 42 percent said he should not.

Trump ordered Michael Flynn to find Clinton's emails during campaign, Mueller report finds
Donald Trump ordered the man who would later serve briefly as his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, to find thousands of missing emails from Hillary Clinton's computer server at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign, the special counsel's report revealed on Thursday.The episode is among the closest that investigators came to uncovering an instance in which Mr Trump himself appeared to use whatever means necessary to locate the messages.However, it stops short of saying he encouraged a breach of his opponent's computers, networks or email accounts.Trump had insisted at the time that he was only joking when he encouraged Russian hackers to find and disclose 30,000 deleted emails from Ms Clinton's servers.But behind the scenes, Trump was serious, according to the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.It said that Mr Flynn, by then a retired three-star Army intelligence officer, told the investigators "that Trump made this request repeatedly, and Flynn subsequently contacted multiple people in an effort to obtain the emails".As it turned out, Russia's military intelligence unit and supporters of Mr Trump's campaign had — apparently independently — sought the email trove, convinced that it contained embarrassing material that could prove decisive on election day.Ms Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state had been the focus of a lengthy investigation by the FBI, and Mr Trump, calling his campaign opponent "Cr
