Nadler: Barr is 'biased' and Mueller's Trump-Russia report must be released

"I have not read the Mueller Report yet", tweeted Trump on Saturday, adding, "even though I have every right to do so", cited by Reuters.

Anonymous members of the Mueller team have reportedly told associates the full report will be more damaging for Trump than the Barr letter indicated.

Barr said he had concluded there was not enough evidence to show that Trump committed the crime of obstruction.

US Attorney-General William Barr has said he plans to make public a redacted copy of the almost 400-page investigative report into Russian interference in the 2016 election by the middle of this month, if not sooner. According to the documents, after Cohen provided testimony to Congress claiming discussions about Trump Tower Moscow ceased in January 2016 (despite those discussions having continued until at least July 2016), "Cohen received a call from Trump's attorney, who congratulated him on the testimony - and said his "client" was happy with Cohen's testimony".

Jarrett Culver , Davide Moretti , Matt Mooney and Brandone Francis can all make the Spartans pay for leaving them open from deep. He has cut down the nets on the biggest stage of all only once - and that drives him daily, if not every minute he is awake.

Giuliani's comments come just days after The New York Times reported on the upset among some Mueller staffers over Barr's handling of the report - particularly the attorney general's four-page summary that noted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and Barr's decision not to proceed with obstruction of justice charges against Trump.

One of the many investigations targeting Mr Trump on Capitol Hill and in the U.S. court system, the House Democrat's probe into the president's tax returns could pull back the curtain on his business empire and his reputation as a savvy dealmaker.

Democrats on Capitol Hill have stated that they will take Barr to court if their subpoena is again ignored.

A Justice Department official, speaking Thursday on condition of anonymity to discuss a confidential process, said summaries of the findings that Mueller's team included as part of its report also contained grand jury information, making it hard for a swift release. "Let's see what the attorney general does first", he said.

Dems Ratchet Up Probe Into Mar-a-Lago Security Breach
The Secret Service has tried to blame Mar-a-Lago for the incident , saying that the club is responsible for who is admitted. Potential interest from China in Mar-a-Lago has drawn particular scrutiny.

The actual report has not yet been released.

House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, already pressing Barr to release the entire unredacted report to Congress, expanded his demands.

"The Department of Justice will continue to defend the long established tradition of protecting grand jury information", said spokeswoman Kelly Laco.

A 1989 legal opinion written by the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) reiterated longstanding agency policy that the attorney general and others could advise the president on when to invoke the privilege, but the only one who can invoke it is the president. Giuliani swiftly went on to say that he had no control over what Barr would decide in terms of redactions.
