Before the Mueller Report is released to Congress and the public on Thursday—reportedly between 11 a.m. and noon EDT—Attorney General William Barr will give a press conference with his second public summary.

The press conference is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. Barr will be accompanied by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. To join cable news watchers and other Mueller report obsessives, you can watch a live stream below.

Those who watch should be aware that Democrats and other Trump critics do not think Barr’s press conference is a politically neutral move but instead are angered over what they perceive to be a stunt meant to influence the narrative (or at least have Barr please his boss, Donald Trump) before the report is released.

For real-time analysis of Barr’s press conference and of the Mueller report once it’s been released, you can follow along with Slate’s live blog. We’ll be here all day.
