Redacted Mueller report to be released within a week

In his first appearance on Capitol Hill since taking office and amid intense speculation over his review of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report Attorney General William Barr arrives to appear before a House Appropriations subcommittee

Barr told the House lawmakers that he expects to release a redacted version "within a week".

"Many of the people who are right now calling for the release of this report were basically castigating Ken Starr and others for releasing the Starr report", Barr said, echoing President Donald Trump's criticism of Nadler.

Republicans have criticized Democrats' efforts to obtain additional materials from the Mueller report, accusing them of an unwillingness to accept the results of Mueller's investigation and arguing there's no precedent for Nadler to seek grand jury material unless he launches impeachment proceedings.

If Mueller does testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee, it will be the latest in a series of wildly hyped congressional hearings that have marked the the Trump presidency, from James Comey's testimony to the Kavanaugh hearings and, most recently, Michael Cohen's appearance before the House Oversight Committee.

The topic of the House appropriations subcommittee hearing is the Justice Department's budget, and Barr's prepared remarks sent to the committee on Monday focused on funding requests for immigration enforcement and to combat violent crime and opioid addiction, not mentioning Mueller's report at all.

"I will consider whatever it takes to get people to see this report", said Representative José Serrano, D, chairman of the Appropriations commerce, justice, science and related agencies subcommittee. "That's something that has been really important to us".

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.

Six leading Democrats, however, say they will fight the redactions.

"I haven't seen the referrals yet from Congressman Nunes, but obviously if there is a predicate for an investigation it will be conducted", Barr said.

We've got a great university. "He just congratulated us and he mentioned our toughness, and that means a lot in our program". The Spartans are bound for Minneapolis after booking a ticket to the Final Four this past weekend.

Barr was grilled by Democrats on the handling of that summary, which stated the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"From a prosecutor's standpoint", he said, "the bottom line is binary, which is charges or no charges". Barr has said that there are four categories of material that are going to be blacked out before it's made public. Questions are sure to remain, however, about the extent to which Barr has blacked out material from the report.

LUCAS: Now, Barr also said that all of the redactions will have a note explaining why the information is being kept secret. Mr Barr released a four-page letter summarising the report two days later and said he would release a redacted version of the full report by mid-April, "if not sooner".

Mr Giuliani not only insisted that there was "nothing" in the report but also that it should be brought before Congress.

The Justice Department, Enlow said, has already agreed to put EPIC's request on an expedited track but other requests are ahead of it.

I've said what I'm going to say about the report today... He added, "My intention is not to ask for it at this stage".

With a tinge of sarcasm in her voice, Lowey called it "extraordinary" that Barr was able to "evaluate hundreds of pages of evidence, legal documents, and findings based on a 22-month-long inquiry and make definitive legal conclusions in less than 48 hours".

On Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr announced that he would issue the full Mueller report - minus redactions - to Congress "within a week".
