The 448 pages of special counsel Robert Mueller's report released Thursday contain a trove of new details about the Trump campaign's interactions with Russians, Wikileaks, possible obstruction and the emotional highs and lows of now-President Donald Trump as the federal investigation continued behind closed doors.
Notably, as NBC News reported, the report contains revelations about a 2016 meeting where Trump's son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner and now-former national security advisor Michael Flynn spoke with a Russian envoy.
The report also expands on what the public had already learned about eldest son Donald Trump Jr.'s emails setting up a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians who were promising damaging information on rival Hillary Clinton. It also confirms Trump Jr.'s correspondence with WikiLeaks about hacked Clinton campaign emails.

Social networking giant Facebook said on Wednesday evening it may have "unintentionally uploaded" the email contacts of up to 1.5 million users on its site, without their permission or knowledge, when they signed up for new accounts since May 2016.
Users affected by that incident were not just limited to the United States, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Those contacts were not shared with anyone and Facebook is deleting them, a company spokesperson told CNBC.

A federal grand jury indictment that was filed Thursday has accused an Ohio man who claimed to be a missing child from Aurora, Illinois of lying to federal agents and of identity theft.
Brian Michael Rini, 23, of Medina, now faces two counts of lying to federal agents and one count of aggravated identity theft.
U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman's office in Cincinnati said making false statements carries a possible sentence of eight years in prison with conviction, while the identify theft count would bring a mandatory two years if he is convicted.

FIFA is backing a 24-hour social media boycott by professional players in England in a protest against racial abuse and revealed plans for a new global campaign to eradicate discrimination in soccer.
Following a series of high-profile cases in recent weeks, the Professional Footballers' Association has gathered support from Premier League stars to stay off Twitter, Facebook and Instagram from 9 a.m. Friday (0800 GMT) until 9 a.m. Saturday as they push for a crackdown on racist messages.
"Collectively, we are simply not willing to stand by while too little is done by football authorities and social media companies to protect players from this disgusting abuse," England and Tottenham defender Danny Rose said on Thursday.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election identified 10 instances of possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump. Mueller said in his report that he could not conclusively determine that Trump had committed a crime or that he hadn't.
The once ice cold case of Gloria Korzon, who vanished in 1981, has been reignited suddenly in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Korzon's ex-husband, William Korzon, has been arrested and was arraigned in a county court Thursday on a homicide charge, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's office.
Korzon, now 76 and living in central Pennsylvania, allegedly responded to new questioning by investigators this year by asking, "Did you find the body?" according to the criminal affidavit released Thursday.
The man taken into custody Wednesday night after allegedly trying to walk into St. Patrick's Cathedral, in the heart of New York City, with two gasoline cans and lighter fluid had booked a one-way $2,800 flight to Italy for Thursday, police said. He was also arrested days earlier at a New Jersey church, law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell News 4.
Marc Lamparello, 37, would've been out of the country by Thursday night, NYPD officials said in announcing formal charges against him. Police said he had purchased the ticket to Rome Wednesday morning, hours before they say he was found at St. Patrick's Cathedral with gallons of gas and lighting fluid.

All three sites of the Triple Crown are among several major tracks that have agreed to phase out the use of a common anti-bleeding medication starting next year.
Starting in 2020, 2-year-old horses won't be allowed to be treated with the drug Lasix within 24 hours of racing. Lasix is a diuretic given to a majority of horses on race days to prevent pulmonary bleeding.
In 2021, the same prohibition would extend to all horses running in any stakes race at tracks in the coalition that announced the ban Thursday. That's the year the Triple Crown would be run for the first time under the new medication rules. Churchill Downs, Pimlico and Belmont are the hosts for the Triple Crown races: Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.
Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 prisoners Thursday and urged them to serve one another as brothers, as he ushered in the solemn pre-Easter rituals made more poignant this year following the devastation of Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral.
Francis travelled to a prison in Velletri, outside Rome, for the Holy Thursday service that re-enacts the biblical story of Christ washing the feet of his disciples. The Mass opens the most solemn period in the liturgical calendar, leading up to the commemoration of Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter.
Democrats vying for the 2020 presidential nomination are calling on the Justice Department to release an unredacted version of Robert Mueller's 448-page report and for the special counsel to testify publicly on his findings.
There were also calls for the resignation of Attorney General William Barr after his pre-release news conference, which they referred to as a political "farce" and a "disgrace." Barr was accused by top Democrats of acting as the president's publicist or personal attorney, rather than the top official in the Justice Department.

Shortly before the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's redacted report on Russian election interference, Attorney General William Barr again reiterated his message that Mueller's investigation found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government hackers.
He revealed in a news conference at the Justice Department that Mueller's report examines 10 episodes in its obstruction of justice probe, and noted that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the majority of Mueller's investigation, disagreed with Mueller about some of Mueller's legal theories. Mueller drew no conclusion on whether obstruction of justice took place.
Barr said he and Rosenstein personally had concluded that while President Donald Trump was "frustrated and angry" about the Mueller probe, nothing the president did rose to the level of an "obstruction-of-justice offense."

Uber is rolling out new features it says will keep riders safe, and it unveiled the changes exclusively on TODAY Thursday.
Tony West, Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, and Corporate Secretary at Uber, told NBC News' Stephanie Gosk that the Uber app will now prominently display in-app safety notifications and will push out an alert for riders to check the license plate, make and model of the vehicle, and name and picture of the driver to confirm it's the correct person picking them up.
The changes come just over two weeks after the murder of University of South Carolina student Samantha Josephson, 21, who was last seen on March 29 getting into a car she thought was her Uber ride.
