(AP) — If and when the Mueller report is released, publishers will have books ready.

On Thursday, Scribner and The Washington Post announced a joint project for an “instant” bound and e-book edition of special counsel Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated summation on alleged ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Skyhorse Press also plans a book. Government reports are not copyrighted and can be released by multiple publishers.

Once Mueller turns in his findings, at a date still undetermined, Attorney General William Barr will decide what to make public.

Previous government releases have become best-sellers, including “The Starr Report” on President Bill Clinton, and the Warren Commission study on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The 9/11 commission report on the 2001 terrorist attacks received a National Book Award nomination in 2004.
