US Congress to get redacted Mueller report by mid-April

More than half of Americans believe Special Counsel Robert Mueller conducted a fair investigation and were satisfied with the results - including a majority of independents, according to a poll released Friday.

"As my letter made clear, my notification to Congress and the public provided, pending release of the report, a summary of its "principal conclusions"-that is, its bottom line", he said".

Representative Jerry Nadler, a Democrat who heads the House Judiciary Committee, responded to Barr's letter by saying he wanted the "full and complete Mueller report, without redactions" by April 2.

"Congress requires the full and complete Mueller report, without redactions, as well as access to the underlying evidence", Representative Jerrold Nadler of NY, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement in response to Barr's letter. Nadler says he will take that date "under advisement", but would like Barr to come sooner.

Barr confirmed on Friday that he received the Mueller report and expected to speak on the report's "principle conclusions" as soon as the weekend. He says Mueller's report is almost 400 pages long.

Attorney General William Barr has told Congress to expect a version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russian Federation investigation by mid-April.

Human rights groups were quick to express horror at the penal code, which also provides for amputation as a punishment for theft. With personal wealth estimated at $20 billion (€17.8 billion), Sultan Bolkiah has been on the Brunei throne since 1967.

Robert Mueller, as FBI director, testifies before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Federal Bureau of Investigation oversight on Capitol Hill in Washington June 13, 2013.

Mueller also left the decision on whether Trump obstructed justice up to the attorney general, who determined that he had not "committed an obstruction-of-justice offence".

Barr, citing the "principal conclusions" of the report last week, said the special counsel did not find that the Trump presidential campaign had conspired with the Russian government to win the 2016 election. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has long emphasized the last point.

Barr plans to make public a redacted copy of Mueller's almost 400-page investigative report into Russian interference in the 2016 election by mid-April, "if not sooner", he said in a letter to lawmakers on Friday.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler was told by Attorney General William Barr that there's no intention of giving the confidential report to Congress immediately as he redacts grand jury testimony and other elements.

Democrats have specifically demanded that Barr transmit the full report by April 2 - a deadline that now appears all but assured he will not meet.
