Trump Questions Why 'Radical Left Democrats' Should See Mueller Report

U.S. President Donald Trump questioned Saturday whether Congressional Democrats should have access to a redacted version of the Mueller report that cleared him of conspiring to collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

Kupec did not provide a precise time, but said it will be released both to Congress and the public.

Word the Mueller report's release was imminent last week sent President Trump into orbit, declaring during a White House lawn pop-up presser that Mueller's investigation was "illegal", "treasonous" and an attempted coup.

Barr also wrote that Mueller presented evidence "on both sides" about whether Trump obstructed justice and did "not exonerate him" on that point, instead declining to draw a conclusion.

Mueller released the report on his almost two year investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election on March 22. His four-page overview of Mueller's report dealt a blow to Democrats, who had hoped the special counsel's account of his wide-ranging probe into the president's campaign and election meddling would bolster their wide-ranging investigations into Trump and his business dealings.

In fact, Barr quoted Mueller as failing to establish that Trump or people associated with his campaign conspired in Russia's campaign interference "despite multiple efforts by Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign".

Justice Department regulations give Barr, a Trump appointee and the top USA law enforcement officer, broad authority to decide what to release and what to withhold from the report. It will have color-coded redactions.

Barr sparked further controversy in testimony before a Senate panel when he confirmed he was starting his own inquiries into counterintelligence decisions that may have involved "spying" on Trump's 2016 campaign.

Barr is not required by the regulations governing the special counsel to share the report with the public or notify Congress of more than "brief notifications, with an outline of the actions and the reasons for them".

House Democrats have already made formal requests to see the entirety of the report, and have floated taking the Justice Department to court over full disclosure of its contents and the underlying evidence.

Last month, Mueller submitted his nearly 400-page report to the Justice Department for review by the attorney general and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The attorney general indicated in his summary that he found no reason to press a criminal charge against the president.
