Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’

Mueller released the report on his almost two year investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election on March 22.

The president's latest comments come days after he called the probe an attempted "coup", while Barr promised to investigate FBI "spying" on Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump questioned Saturday whether Congressional Democrats should have access to a redacted version of the Mueller report that cleared him of conspiring to collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 election. According to the summary, Mueller found no collusion with Russian Federation but made no definitive conclusions on obstruction of justice.

While people close to Trump told the Times that the President has been more confident and in good spirits since Attorney General William Barr released his assessment of the report, Trump is purposely "escalating his language" to appeal to his base, in the Times words.

Barr has said he will release as much of the Mueller report as possible, while excluding material Mueller included from secret grand jury testimony and confidential US intelligence sources.

Barr, testifying to House and Senate panels last week, said he planned to send a redacted report to Congress this week. Trump has often pointed to this as evidence of bias, and Barr seemed to concur, saying that "spying did occur" on the then-nominee's campaign - a claim Trump has regularly made without evidence.

Jerrold Nadler wants to see Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full report and the underlying evidence to evaluate whether there is proof of "very bad deeds" committed by President Trump.

Rick Hasen, a professor of law and political science at University of California, Irvine, tweeted out a list of "what to expect when you're expecting the (redacted) Mueller report, riffing on the title of a best-selling advice book for pregnant women and their partners".
