Barr Says He Intends To Release Mueller Report

U.S. Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers on Tuesday that he intends to release “within a week” a redacted version of the long-awaited report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

During a congressional hearing, Barr was repeatedly challenged by Democrats who raised suspicions that he may have misrepresented Mueller’s report to paint the Republican president in a better light.

Barr, an appointee of Trump who last month announced what he said were the main findings of the report, said he would be as open as possible about redactions of sensitive information when he hands over the full document.

“Within a week I will be in position to release that report to the public and then I will engage with the chairmen of both judiciary committees about that report, about any further requests that they have,” Barr said at his first appearance before Congress since receiving the report on March 22.

“I don’t intend at this stage to send the full unredacted report to the committee,” Barr told a House of Representatives Appropriations subcommittee.

“I am relying on my own discretion to make as much public as I can.” Tuesday’s hearing came a little more than two weeks after Mueller wrapped up a 22-month-long probe into whether members of Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia during the White House race and if he obstructed official inquiries into the matter.
