BARR says he's redacting Mueller's report for four things:

-Grand jury info
-Intel sources/methods
-Ongoing investigations
-"Reputational interests" of "peripheral third parties"

The fight with Dems may be over how broadly he construes these things.
And Dems will want to see what's underneath the redactions regardless. They've already emphasized that Republicans were given access to pretty much all of this kind of info when they demanded documents from DOJ over the last two years.
BARR also bristles at the idea that his initial four-page memo was a summary of Mueller's full report. It was only meant to summarize his "bottom line."

NADLER says Congress' April 2 deadline for the full report "still stands."
Nadler's GOP counterpart Doug COLLINS says Barr is acting appropriately.
And COLLINS also swipes at Nadler's "arbitrary deadlines" and suggestion that Barr release the report without redactions.
Is there a legal/justice department norm for what a “peripheral third party” is?
In the same breath just now Trump says he trusts Barr to handle the Mueller report and that the investigation was a “hoax” and a “witch hunt.”

Worth noting Barr has testified that he does not believe Mueller would ever be involved in a witch hunt.
