Attorney General William Barr Will Release Mueller Report ‘Within A Week’

15 2019 William Barr then US Attorney General nominee testifies during a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.- Two weeks after he cleared President Donald Trump

He said he had offered Mueller the chance to review his four-page letter, but that Mueller declined.

"Two-and-a-half weeks ago the Mueller report was completed".

Barr is testifying before a House appropriations subcommittee.

At Tuesday's hearing, Democrats said they were concerned that a four-page summary letter of the report's main conclusions Barr released last month portrayed the findings in an overly favorable way for President Trump.

Barr countered that he and other Justice Department officials had already been briefed on Mueller's findings and had a strong "inkling" about what was coming when the special counsel delivered his report on March 22.

Democrats repeatedly criticized Barr for his handling of the report, including taking it upon himself in the letter to decide that Trump should not be charged with obstruction of justice.

Avlon said that Barr could just say that he would not answer questions about the Mueller report until later this month when it's finally released - and the entire hearing could boil down to "irresistible force, meet immovable object".

Later in the hearing, the attorney general again dismissed criticism of the lawsuit.

Barr is working with Rosenstein, Mueller, and their key aides to produce an edited version of the report. The House Judiciary Committee voted last week to authorize a subpoena for the full report and evidence.

But the DOJ has defended Barr's initial summary, arguing that there was sensitive information pertaining to ongoing grand jury investigations in the report that could not be disclosed.

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

After years of complaints from Republicans and allies of the president, Attorney General William Barr revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is being investigated over FISA surveillance on the Trump campaign in 2016. Barr rejected the assertion that he could have quickly made public the summaries the Special Counsel's team prepared because all of the material contains grand-jury information, which by law cannot be released. "The second is information that the intelligence community believes would reveal intelligence sources and methods".

Fourth is information that implicates the privacy or reputational interests of peripheral players, where there is a decision not to charge them.

The attorney general said a redacted Mueller report would be released within a week, and the special counsel team did not play a role in drafting his letter to Congress. Barr added that his redactions will be broken down into four categories so readers can see why the information was omitted. That decision ruled that courts only have the authority to order the release of grand jury information if it falls squarely within the exceptions listed in Rule 6 (e).

"You've indicated some actions the special counsel investigated as potentially raising obstruction of justice concerns haven't been publicly reported". They'll see exactly what Barr wants them to see. The Justice Department will request another $71 million to hire 100 more judges, he said, to bring the total to 634.

Barr could mollify some angst when he releases the report, even though some portions will be redacted.

He also criticized those calling for the report's release as hypocritical. While Burr said he didn't know exactly what's in the report, he added, "but there are going to be things that maybe cause some people to say, 'Oh, gosh, I didn't know that existed'".

Moreover, Barr reminded the panel of lawmakers that he's "operating under a regulation that was put together during the Clinton Administration and does not provide for the publication of the report".
