NBC News reported Tuesday that several current and former White House officials have reached out through their lawyers to determine whether their names or any names at all will be redacted from the report, which will be released on Thursday.
Those efforts have been unsuccessful, however, as the Justice Department has refused to give the White House any details, NBC reported.
“They got asked questions and told the truth and now they’re worried the wrath will follow,” a former White House official told the network.
“You have a whole bunch of former White House officials and current White House officials, but especially former White House officials, who were told to cooperate,” they added. “So people went and did that, and now the uncertainty is just how much of that information is going to be in that report and how identifiable to individuals is it going to be. And nobody knows.”
