Barr Expects to Release Mueller's Report 'Within a Week'

Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers Tuesday he's on track to release the Russia investigation findings by his previous timeline of mid-April.


Barr Expects to Release Mueller's Report 'Within a Week'

Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers Tuesday that he's still on track to release a version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation  by mid-April .

"Within a week I will be in a position to release the report to the public and then I will engage with the chairmen of both judiciary committees about that report and about any further requests that they have," Barr told a House Appropriations subcommittee.  The report is  going to be redacted .

Barr said he'll be removing grand jury material, information that could affect ongoing investigations, classified information and other details that could implicate the privacy of "peripheral third parties." Democrats have been pushing for the entirety of Mueller's confidential report to be released and they've threatened to  issue a subpoena  to get it.  The point of Tuesday's hearing was to talk about the Justice Department's budget — not Barr's handling of the Mueller report.

But since it marked the first time Barr had testified since releasing his  summary of the findings  on March 24, Democratic lawmakers  came prepared  with plenty of questions.

Barr  refused to answer  a question about whether the White House had been briefed or shown a copy of the full report.  "I'm not going to say anything more about it until the report is out and everyone has a chance to look at it," Barr said.

Barr previously said in late March that he had  no plans to submit  all of Mueller's findings to the White House for an executive privilege review.
