Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said Monday he is not aware of any leaks regarding the length of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report for the Russia investigation.
During an interview on MSNBC, Woodward guessed it will be very long, perhaps thousands of pages in length.
“I think everybody who is saying we have to see the report is quite correct,” he told host Chris Matthews, touching on how Democrats are rallying for the Justice Department to release the whole document after Attorney General William Barr sent a four-page summary to Congress over the weekend.
“God is in the details here,” Woodward added. “And this is under dispute, and so let’s look at it. I have no idea, and no one I’ve talked to has any idea or will say how long it is. It might be thousands of pages.”
Matthews joked the report could also be three pages, which Woodward dismissed. He said “it has to be” long.
Woodward wrote a book that was published last year, Fear: Trump in the White House, which contained an insider’s look at the Trump team’s handling of the Russia investigation.
Mueller concluded his nearly two-year-long investigation last week. According to Barr’s summary, Mueller’s team found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia after a 22-month probe which included roughly 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and 500 witness interviews. Mueller also declined to determine whether Trump obstructed justice, and Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was insufficient evidence to show the president committed a crime.
In a letter Monday, House Democrats gave the Justice Department a one-week ultimatum to submit Mueller’s full report and the underlying documents.
