Barr Expected To Deliver Mueller Report Summary On Sunday

If Bill Barr releases the report (or a summary of its conclusions) today, it'll be the only topic of discussion on Sunday morning. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, despite threats, insults and president's refusal to sit for an interview, completed his work.

A spokesperson from the Justice Department said the conclusions of the report (note that this isn't the same as the report itself) may be released to the public as the same time as it is to Congress, perhaps to avoid the issue of somebody on either side of the political aisle attempting to leak a heavily spun version of the conclusions.

Nadler repeated many of his assertions to Chuck Todd on Meet The Press: "It's critical that everything in that report and the underlying evidence be public, be open to the American people". Barr has a lot of control over how much information will be made public and even revealed to Congress and Trump himself. We know the president's son and campaign manager were involved in a meeting with the Russians to receive stolen - what they thought was to receive stolen information - information stolen by the Russians from the Democratic National Committee as part of the Russian government's attempt to help Trump in the election. "The American people have a right to know everything". Trump's business, his charity and presidential transition operation remain under investigation, Coons said, and congressional Democrats would keep looking into his activities.

Barr spent more than nine hours at the Department of Justice on Saturday, consuming Mueller's completed findings into how Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election, a sprawling investigation that has assumed an extraordinary place in American politics since almost the start of Donald Trump's presidency.

"If Lindsey's speaking, I want to come down here, for two reasons", Trump said.

That's according to a senior Justice Department official.

But we didn't suffer at all. "We were really well organised". Barca's win was tainted by a late injury to Suarez, however.

The DOJ was "determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgement", Mr Nadler said on Twitter.

Mueller has concluded his investigation of Russian election interference and possible coordination with Donald Trump's campaign. Barr and Mueller are said to be friends, and Mueller attended the weddings of Barr's children.

Barr said in a Friday letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees that he would share Mueller's "principal conclusions" with Congress as soon as Saturday. We know that the president pressured the Federal Bureau of Investigation to go easy, to stop investigating Flynn and various other people.

Trump took White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Emmet Flood with him to Florida.

Even with the details still under wraps, the end of the probe without additional indictments by Mueller was welcome news to some in Trump's orbit who had feared a final round of charges could ensnare more Trump associates, including members of the president's family. And No. 2: "I know if I'm here, he's not going to say anything bad about me".
