AG to release summary of Mueller report – this afternoon


Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Robert Mueller report remains on track to be shared with Congress and the public later Sunday, opening up the next phase of what could be a protracted legal fight to lift the curtain further on the special counsel’s nearly two-year-long Russia investigation.

Barr, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and their senior aides returned to the Justice Department in the morning for their third consecutive day reviewing the long-awaited Mueller report as calls mounted from the Democratic-led House for a near complete release of all of the special counsel’s investigative findings, evidence and other underlying materials.

The new Trump-appointed attorney general set off a weekend of feverish speculation about the report by notifying congressional leaders in a letter late Friday afternoon that Mueller had concluded his work and that the Justice Department planned to share the “principal conclusions” of the investigation with lawmakers and the public by about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a department official.
