A redacted version of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report is due to be released Thursday after years of speculation over its contents and what it could mean for the US and President Donald Trump.

The document is expected to be unveiled in stages, with it first becoming available to lawmakers in the form of specially produced CDs from which they can download the report.

Here is how the release is due to take place:

  • 9:30 a.m.: Attorney General William Barr is scheduled to give a press conference on his interpretation of the report. He will take questions; Mueller and his team will not be there.
  • 11 a.m. to noon: Copies of the report in CD form will be distributed to members of Congress, who are free to talk publicly about what they see.
  • Around this time, the report is expected to be posted on the special counsel’s website. A precise time has not been made public.
  • Trump suggested that he might hold a press conference after the release.
