Democrats Demand Immediate Release Of Mueller Report

Mr Barr said he may send Congress a summary of Mr Mueller's findings as soon as this weekend.

Trump repeated a political argument that he made on Wednesday, suggesting that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, and Mueller himself, had no basis to issue a report judging him because neither had received a single vote compared to the millions who had given him his election victory.

The Attorney General has yet to communicate the findings to the US Congress and decide how much detail would be made public.

The White House said that the next steps are up to Attorney General Barr and President Trump had not been briefed on the report.

Update 5:28 EDT: White House Press Secretary Sanders reports the White House has not yet been briefed on the report. If Trump directs the Justice Department to defy the subpoena, the court fight would nearly certainly go to the Supreme Court.

In his letter to Congress' judiciary committee leaders - Senators Lindsey Graham and Dianne Feinstein and Congressmen Jerrold Nadler and Doug Collins - Mr Barr confirmed there were no instances during the investigation where the Department of Justice ordered Mr Mueller to not take action.

Mueller is, however, not expected to recommend any further indictments.


Mr Mueller, a former FBI director, had been examining since 2017 whether President Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow to try to influence the election and whether the Republican president later unlawfully tried to obstruct his investigation.

Trump bemoaned that the special counsel was "best friend" to Comey, who succeeded Mueller as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

It remains unclear which cases and segments of the investigation Mueller may have referred out to other offices.

What has Trump or his team said? .

But Trump has also signaled he isn't opposed to Mueller's report being released publicly. So has Representative Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

U.S. President Donald Trump calls out to media as he greets people on the tarmac after arriving on Air Force One, on Friday at Palm Beach International Airport, in West Palm Beach, Fla. No president has every been removed from office via impeachment.

"It's just a continuation of the same witch hunt and behind closed doors, they laugh at it", he said.
