Special counsel Rober Mueller will give a statement regarding the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election at 11 a.m. ET (10 a.m. CT) today.

The statement will be given from the Justice Department grounds and is expected to be “substantial.” It is hoped that the statement will provide some clarity regarding the probe’s findings regarding Russian interference and whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

In the redacted version of the report released last month, several incidents in which President Trump requested that his aides take actions to obstruct the investigation were outlined. However, those attempts were largely unsuccessful because aides refused to cooperate.

The report also showed that although the Trump campaign was aware of Russia’s illegal attempts to influence the election, and that those actions were to their benefit, they didn’t take criminal steps to help.

The White House and Attorney General William Barr were informed of the statement on Tuesday night, a senior white house official told CNN. Barr was also briefed on the contents of what his statement will be.

The White House is expected to comment following Mueller’s remarks.
