US Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a court filing has said Donand Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort does not deserve leniency.

New Attorney General William Barr acknowledges the gravity of the Mueller investigation and pledged "as much transparency as I can consistent with the law".

The Justice Department said Friday that Mueller isn't expected to submit his report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump obstructed justice next week, quashing rumors that the probe was finally coming to an end.

Schiff on Sunday stepped up his focus on Barr, saying that if the new attorney general withholds any part of the report, his legacy will be "tarnished". "So I think there'll be vast pressure" for a full release", Schiff told ABC's "This Week". Schiff said he's prepared to sue the administration over the release of the report.

As the attorney general of the United States, Barr technically has the final say on how much of the Russian Federation investigation report, which includes Mueller looking into possible collusion from the 2016 Trump campaign and obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump himself, can be seen by the American public.

Beyond that, however, is "the intense public need to know here, which I think overrides any other consideration", he said.

Trump's former trusted campaign chairman's sentencing memorandum was due to be publicly available by midnight Friday, but failed to come to light, suggesting that the document might have been under a seal.

Does that mean that he would take the White House to court? "We will take it to court if necessary", Schiff said in an interview on ABC's "This Week".

The European Union blacklisted the group's military wing in 2013, but has resisted pressure to outlaw its political arm. He said: "I have been clear that anti-Semitism and hate crime has no place whatsoever in our city or in our society.

Some have viewed Barr's criticism of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey during last month's hearing as an indication of how he might handle the Mueller report.

Opinions on whether Democrats would be able to successfully subpoena Mueller were split on Sunday.

Some Democrats are pointing to documents that Justice Department officials provided to Congress in the wake of the investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails, as well as information that Republicans demanded as part of their own inquiries.

Findings, evidence and explanations must be fully disclosed, without creating doubt about whether the administration of President Donald Trump is manipulating or withholding information. Roy Blunt, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Washington reporter Keith Boag takes an in-depth look at the Mueller investigation evidence and what we know so far.

"We will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress", he continued.

Blunt appeared on CBS television's Face the Nation.

He committed crimes while leading a presidential campaign and while out on bail before trial, and then lied to investigators after pleading guilty, prosecutors said, revealing "a hardened adherence to committing crimes and lack of remorse".
