Washington Post said:
Mueller’s report (with redactions by AG Barr) will be released on Thursday, @DevlinBarrett reports

The Justice Department expects to release on Thursday a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on President Trump, his associates and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, setting the stage for further battles in Congress over the politically explosive inquiry.

The report, which runs nearly 400 pages without exhibits, has been the subject of heated debate since Attorney General William P. Barr notified lawmakers last month that Mueller had completed his 22-month investigation.

Barr has spent weeks redacting sensitive information from the report in preparation for its public release. Barr is shielding four specific categories of information: grand jury material, details whose public release could harm ongoing investigations, any information that would “potentially compromise sources and methods” in intelligence collection, and anything that would “unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.”

Let's see what Barr tries to redact, if there's massive black lines all over the thing that's the clue we need to know that a lot of the stuff that's in the report is ongoing.

Is this the report the white house had access too to make redactions? If so, is there any reason to doubt that they won't use their redactions to prevent such a state of affairs?
No idea what they’ll try to do. But the length and detail expected in the report should make it pretty straightforward to know if they’re redacting things that aren’t grand jury related or classified.

Why are folks assuming that there will be large blocks of redactions, rather than just a blank page with *redacted* on it. We'll get the full report when it leaks from the House or Mueller's office, not before

The Mueller report is coming but with color-coded cuts (LA Times)
Lawyers from the Justice Department and the special counsel’s office are going word by word, sentence by sentence through the nearly 400-page confidential report that Robert S. Mueller III completed last month, striking out tidbits as they prepare to release a redacted version to the public.

They’ve identified four categories of protected information and assigned different colors to each one to identify each cut or trim. For now, the four hues are as closely guarded as the report’s contents.
Officials said they would redact four kinds of protected information in the report, which is officially titled “Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.”

They include grand jury evidence, classified material from U.S. intelligence agencies or allies, information about ongoing investigations, and details that could “unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.”

That vague final category raised concerns that prosecutors could try to shield the White House from embarrassing new disclosures. But Barr promised a Senate panel on Wednesday he wouldn’t hide unflattering information about the president.
And because of course:
Trump’s lawyers have prepared a counter report to give the public a competing narrative to Mueller’s document. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who represents the president, said Sunday that the legal team was “polishing it up.”

How useful would be an X-Men mutant who could read redacted material? Such a useless power but any good writer could make it work....
I fully expect machine learning AI to be able to decipher redacted documentation with a shocking degree of accuracy within the next 5 years, based on common legal terms, sentence structure, use of monospaced fonts and the surrounding text.

People really shouldn’t want details about current ongoing investigations to leak unredacted.
This. Best for people to read the report first and then point out specific pieces to dig into rather than making a blanket "unredact everything"-request. There's no way Mueller's team is ever gonna leak a report that contains stuff that's truly confidential rather than inconvenient.

If they just redact names and stuff but some juicy details that would suffice. If they start blanking our paragraphs of detail that isn't ongoing investigations that will be a joke. I think even the Mueller team have redacted what they think is right anyway so go by them, no excuse not to.

"anything that would 'unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.'”

So anything involving anyone in Trump's orbit, then.
Trump did crooked stuff with third party who are also crooks, leave them alone because you shouldn't know someone is a crook because they might loose crook business and harm their nice fronted business that does crooked stuff.

Does it mean that?

@realDonaldTrump The Mueller Report, which was written by 18 Angry Democrats who also happen to be Trump Haters (and Clinton Supporters), should have focused on the people who SPIED on my 2016 Campaign, and others who fabricated the whole Russia Hoax. That is, never forget, the crime.....


@realDonaldTrump ....Since there was no Collusion, why was there an Investigation in the first place! Answer - Dirty Cops, Dems and Crooked Hillary!

That they'll redact things that "unduly infringe on the reputation" of those involved means this thing isn't what we really want. This will be laundered and spun just like the initial Barr summary.

Anything that personally mentions Trump and his family will be blacked out. Of course we'll be able to piece together who some of the redacted names are but the full, unedited version still neends to be seen.

Barr explicitly said this type of redaction would not apply to anyone in public office.

Even what we DO know that is possibly in Trump's favor doesn't reinforce THIS narrative. Good grief...

He testified to Congress. It will be obvious if he lied.
What did he testify to Congress about? Can you please elaborate how it will be obvious that he lied if, for example, he blacks out certain information that he did not provide to Congress, since he did not give the entire report to Congress?

Why do you believe he behaved in good faith to Congress given the massive nature of the report?

*edit*

I also notice you didn't answer the question. If I may ask again, do you personally trust Barr's word at face value?
