Update: Mueller has handed over his report to the Justice Department.
Attorney General Bill Barr may send Congress summary of findings this weekend, reported AP.
According to the special counsel rules, Robert Mueller has to submit a “confidential” report to the attorney general. The rules do not require the attorney general to share the report with Congress or even make it public, but the Democrats have vowed to fight like hell to get their hands on the report.
Bill Barr said during his confirmation hearings that he wants to be as transparent as possible with Mueller’s report “consistent with the rules and the law.”
Mueller has indicted many of Trump’s associates on process crimes; not one American has been charged with conspiring with Russia — it’s a total witch hunt.
