Mueller report to Congress, public by April

Former FBI Director James Comey drops Trump BOMBSHELL in interview with Lester Holt Here’s What Mueller’s Russia Report Will Be Called and Roughly How Long it Will Be

The Justice Department official said Barr discussed the length of the report during a phone call Wednesday with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler. Schiff, the focus of Republicans' post-Mueller ire, says Mueller's conclusion would not affect his own committee's counterintelligence probes.

Barr said in his letter on Friday that certain information must be redacted before the report is released. "The Department of Justice should not be involved in a cover-up of what's actually in the report".

"Information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties". "We are looking to get the report itself and the underlying documents", a House Democratic staffer said. "If the department is unwilling to produce the full report voluntarily, then we will do everything in our power to secure it for ourselves".

Democrats argue that the Justice Department has provided hundreds of thousands of pages of investigative records to Congress on the Hillary Clinton email probe, and many other sensitive documents related to the Russian Federation investigation as it was ongoing - and so should do so again now that the Mueller report is completed.

"The American people need to be able to see Mueller's report", Gabbard said in the video, but she emphasized that "we should all be relieved" Mueller did not recommend charging Trump with a criminal offense.

Hours after Trump went on Twitter to demand that Democrat Adam Schiff resign from Congress, Republican lawmakers called on him to quit as chairman of the bitterly divided House of Representatives Intelligence Committee because of his comments about the president's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

As that battle brews, House Democrats barreled ahead with their oversight of the Trump administration, and Trump resumed his attack on Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just as the chairman of the intelligence committee was about to gavel the panel into session. But in this new letter, Barr says explicitly that he doesn't plan to go down that road at all.

"Mr. Attorney General, we do not need your interpretation", Pelosi said Thursday. "I have absolutely nothing to hide". The fact that he's arguing that his brief summary wasn't a summary of the whole report suggests that he's listening. In a late-afternoon gathering last Sunday, aides convened in press secretary Sarah Sanders' office for a champagne toast after the attorney general's chief of staff phoned Emmet Flood, in Palm Beach with the President, to brief him on the report. But when the special counsel regulations were written the following year, the notification to Congress requirement was removed.

"Donald Trump has the authority to make every word of this report public". "They're probably saying in Russian Federation, you know, if we did like this guy, we've made a big mistake, we'd rather have crooked Hillary Clinton..." "It was condescending, it was arrogant and it wasn't the right thing to do".

In his new letter, Barr chastises those "mischaracterizing" his previous letter.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller walks past the White House, March 24, 2019.

Trump is calling the result of the Mueller probe an exoneration and said he supports the release of the report.

That was followed the next day by six Democratic committee chairs sending a letter to Barr demanding that the report be submitted to Congress by April 2.

Democrats are anxious to hear from Barr about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation report.

Trump says it's "maybe the only time I've ever agreed with the mayor of Chicago". "Mueller report will be public, AG Barr going above and beyond to expedite it, WH won't review before, and Mueller even helping", he tweeted. "It smells of pure desperation". Instead, the special counsel set out evidence on both sides of the question, adding: "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him [of obstruction of justice]". Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement.

Although it's unclear at this stage how much of the report will be seen as Mr Barr works to get parts redacted.

"Mr. Attorney General", she said, "show us the report and we'll come to our own conclusions".
