Redacted Mueller report to be released within a week

US Attorney General Expected to Face Mueller Report Questions

"This process is going along very well, and my original timetable of being able to release this by mid-April stands", Barr told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Tuesday, testifying before Congress for the first time since Mueller's final report was submitted to him.

Barr, who said at the hearing that he hoped to publicly release a redacted version of the report "within a week", declined to answer Lowey's question.

"Once we put the Mueller report to bed, once Barr comes to the committee and takes questions about his findings and his actions, and we get to see the Mueller report, consistent with law, then we are going to turn to finding out how this got off the rails", he said in a March 28 interview with Fox News.

Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) claimed Barr seemed to "to cherry pick from the report to draw the most favorable conclusion possible for the President".

Barr will speak to a Senate appropriations subcommittee Wednesday, the second of two days of hearings about his department's budget.

Barr said he wanted to look at all of the investigations that have already probed the matter, including Congress and the Justice Department inspector general, and see if any areas need additional investigation.

Barr's four-page synopsis of Mueller's report said that the Special Counsel did not find that anyone in Trump's campaign conspired with Russian Federation to interfere in the election and that Mueller did not reach a conclusion about whether Trump sought to obstruct justice.

In addition, the fact that the report, despite relentless spinning by Attorney General Bill Barr, doesn't completely exonerate the president of obstruction of justice charges should give Americans cause for concern.

"As I've said, and you pointed out, since my confirmation I do think it's important that the public have an opportunity to learn the results of the Special Counsel's work", Barr told Congressional members.

Despite the absence of the blue bloods like Duke, UNC, and Kentucky, the ratings show that fans were simply glued to the action. The toughest test of his career might be up next: The Red Raiders are one of college basketball's best defensive teams.

This indicates that Barr is looking into allegations that Republican lawmakers have been pursuing for more than a year - that the investigation into President Donald Trump and possible collusion with Russian Federation was tainted at the start by anti-Trump bias in the FBI and Justice Department.

"From a prosecutor's standpoint", he said, "the bottom line is binary, which is charges or no charges".

Barr said the redactions will be color-coded and come with explanations of the specific reason that information was not made public.

The attorney general also addressed media reports that alleged members of the Special Counsel were not happy with his letter.

Democrats say they can't know what to make of Mueller's findings until they see them for themselves, but Barr's office has been working with Mueller's team to redact material before anyone outside a handful of Justice Department officials sees the report.

Mr Giuliani not only insisted that there was "nothing" in the report but also that it should be brought before Congress.

The request to the Justice Department, Schiff said, would fall under a grand jury exemption for material related to counterintelligence matters, and Schiff didn't rule out using a subpoena if necessary.

The attorney general said he has not received the criminal investigation referrals from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that the lawmaker mentioned earlier in the week. He added, "My intention is not to ask for it at this stage". Trump is clearly beginning to realize that, even if Barr can redact tons of damaging information, he can't invent material that wasn't actually there to begin with.
