Once again, not sure if I should be disappointed or encouraged by this news.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not expected to deliver his report on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election next week, a Justice Department official briefed on the plans told CNN.
As CNN has previously reported, the precise timing of the announcement has been a moving target, but Justice officials are cognizant of President Donald Trump’s upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam next week, which could play a role in the report’s timing. Trump said Wednesday that it’s “totally up to Bill Barr” whether Mueller’s report comes out while he is overseas next week
CNN reported Wednesday that newly confirmed Attorney General Barr was preparing to announce the report’s completion as early as next week, signaling the impending end of the investigation and the start of a potentially contentious political battle over what parts of the report will be made public.
The official declined to comment Friday why the report may not be ready next week, saying the timing has always been a moving target.
I am not really sure if this delay is due to Trump being in Vietnam next week or if CNN and NBC just got bad info.
It was a little confusing as to how they could be ready to submit this report when they just recently got some of those congressional transcripts and are still going through the evidence seized in the Roger Stone’s residence.
On the other hand, I feel like the clock is ticking and that new Attorney General Bill Barr has plans to shut this whole thing down in the very near future.
Though I am pretty convinced that it is too late to keep the truth from leaking out no matter what bullshit he tries to pull on Trump’s behalf.
