US President Donald Trump says he has not read the Mueller report

William Barr takes part in the

Justice Department lawyers even note that the timing of Barr's planned release of a redacted version of the report is well before politically charged dates, such as Barr's possible testimony to Congress in May, and the 2020 primaries and general election.

In another tweet, Trump called the report "a total waste of time".

Instead he accused Nadler, a Democratic legislator from NY, of having "prejudged this case a year ago", saying that he "was overheard on Amtrak talking about impeachment well before the report came out".

"If we give the Democrats all 400 pages unredacted that's not going to be the end of the inquiry", Mulvaney said. It also said that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

Attorney General William Barr is redacting at least four categories of information from the report, which spans almost 400 pages, before issuing it to Congress and the public.

The attorney general, in another letter to Congress, claimed that it was his responsibility to redact large amounts of material from the Mueller report as it might reveal techniques and sources of United States intelligence agencies.

Reports by The New York Times and other media outlets have alleged that members of Mueller's team were unhappy with how Barr characterized their findings, however.

US President Donald Trump was a vocal critic of the investigation into his campaign.




Congressional Democrats have indicated they will fight those redactions in court if the subpoena is ignored.

On Tuesday, members of Congress might get their first chance to press Barr in public about the Mueller report, when he appears before the House Appropriations Committee in a hearing nominally focused on the Justice Department Budget.

Robert Mueller was tasked with compiling the report, which dealt with allegations aimed at the US President. "This tells me they don't have anything, because if they were malicious enough to do that and they had a smoking gun, they wouldn't say in general it's very damaging".

In an odd stroke of timing, the federal appeals court in Washington issued a ruling Friday in an unrelated case that buttresses the argument for keeping a close hold on grand jury information.

At stake is the president's ability to put the Russian Federation probe behind him and look to 2020 for reelection.

Many Democrats and legal observers see Barr as an improper actor in the handling of the Mueller report.

"Prosecutors generally take a broad view of what constitutes grand jury information in order to avoid inadvertently disclosing it, but here there's a strong counterbalancing interest in ensuring that everything that can come out does come out, " Bies said. Giuliani swiftly went on to say that he had no control over what Barr would decide in terms of redactions.
