Barr Won't Answer Question On Whether White House Has Seen Mueller Report


Attorney General William Barr says he is working to make as much of the Mueller report public as he can. In a House hearing, Barr said he is still working on redaction's involving confidential material – and that he hopes to release the redacted report within a week.

Barr stressed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller played no role in crafting his four-page summary to Congress last month. Democrats are demanding the full report, without redaction's. Among them, New York Democrat Nita Lowey, who said Barr's handling of the Mueller report has been “unacceptable” and “suspicious.”

Barr has declined to say whether the White House has seen or even been briefed on the Mueller report, but added that he’ll have more to say when he testifies before the Senate and House judiciary committees, after the redacted report is released.

Barr's summary letter said Mueller found no evidence of conspiracy or collusion between Russia and President Trump's 2016 campaign. He noted that Mueller did not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice.
