Mueller report will be released within a week: US attorney general

Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday he is reviewing the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, declaring he believed the president's campaign had been spied on and wanted to make sure proper procedures were followed.

With the goal to discredit what's coming, Trump and his allies have unleashed a series of broadsides against Mueller's team and the Democrats pushing for full release of the final report.

Barr notably said that Mueller declined an opportunity to review the four-page letter he sent to Congress revealing the investigation's "bottom line" conclusions, although he conceded that Mueller's team might have preferred for the Attorney-General to have released more information initially.

"They're operating from a contrived conspiracy borne and supported by fake news, and they can't give it up for whatever reasons", Limbaugh said.

In addition to questions about the Mueller report, Barr is likely to be queried on the Justice Department lawsuit about the Affordable Care Act, as well as the Trump administration's immigration policies and family separation.

"Within a week I will be in a position to release the report to the public", Mr Barr told the House Appropriations Committee.

Barr, an appointee of Trump who last month announced what he said were the main findings of the report, said he would be as open as possible about redactions of sensitive information when he hands over the full document.

The House Appropriations Committee is not among those examining Trump, his finances and his foreign contacts, and only one member of the subcommittee that questioned Barr also sits on any of those panels that are.

"I've said what I'm going to say about the report today". "This report is too important to all of us".

India rejects Pakistan's allegation of planning attack
The foreign minister said India can stage another Pulwama-type incident to justify its misadventure against Pakistan . Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs in Pakistan's government, made the announcement today.

Barr's trio of letters about the Mueller report included his four-page summary in which he said the special counsel found no evidence Trump or his campaign team colluded with Russian Federation.

"If you seek both transparency and for the American public to learn the full contours of the Special Counsel's investigation, public testimony from Special Counsel Mueller himself is undoubtedly the best way to accomplish this goal", Collins wrote in his letter Monday. As more information becomes available, this post will be updated.

Following Mr Barr's announcement, Representative Jim Jordan of OH said: "it's great news he's looking into how this whole thing started back in 2016".

Other Democrats made similar comments on Barr's decisions related to the review of Mueller's probe, which, according to Barr, found no evidence of collusion and did not make a determination on obstruction of justice. Barr has been working with top advisers and Mueller to prepare the almost 400-page report for public release.

Barr is appearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee one day after he testified before a House subcommittee and answered many - though not all - questions from lawmakers about the release of Mueller's almost 400 page report.

The redactions will be color-coded based on which of the four categories they fall into, the attorney general added.

Most of the questioning concerned demands for Barr to give lawmakers special counsel Robert Mueller's full Russian Federation report and the evidence behind it. The first is grand jury information, 6 (e) material.

Republican Lindsey Graham, who's a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has already pledged to pursue the issue in the Judiciary Committee he leads. "We would harm people", the California Republican said Tuesday.
