White House officials are reportedly anxious about Thursday's upcoming release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full report into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Attorney General William Barr previously released his summary of the report's main conclusions, saying Mueller did not establish that President Trump's campaign conspired with Russia. But the redacted report may contain information that could be politically damaging, some of which would have come from current and former White House officials who cooperated. Some officials are experiencing "breakdown-level anxiety" ahead of the report's release, a person close to the White House told NBC News. "They got asked questions and told the truth and now they're worried the wrath will follow."
