REPORT RELEASE - U.S. Attorney General William Barr is expected today to release a redacted version of Robert Mueller’s nearly 400-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Barr, who has scheduled a 9:30 a.m. press conference with deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, has said he would redact certain elements from the report to protect, among other things, grand jury information. The DOJ says a limited number of members of Congress and their staff will have access to a copy of the report without certain redactions. Two lawsuits—one from BuzzFeed and another from the Electronic Privacy Information Center—could challenge the scope of any redactions.
PHONY BUSINESS - A 23-year-old Tennessee man who apparently cut and pasted lawyer profiles from Cravath’s website to create a fake one has been charged with impersonating an attorney, Jack Newsham reports. John Lambert, suspected of using the alias “Eric Pope,” was charged in Manhattan federal court with wire fraud and conspiracy for allegedly taking upward of $16,000 under false pretenses from consumers and businesses who found him online. Some of the fake biographies appearing on Lambert’s “law firm” website were lifted word for word from Cravath’s.
