Barr said he'll release at least a partial version in April.
Barr on Sunday released a four-page memo stating that Mueller's investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government before the election, but Democrats have demanded to see Mueller's full report and the underlying evidence. And they really don't like the fact he's refusing to give up the House investigation now that Barr has released his letter, writing that "the findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions" that Donald Trump or those around him might be compromised.
"The president has now an opportunity for weeks, it sounds like, to do these victory laps", said Cummings, noting that Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, is among those headed to jail as a result of the probe. Trump's victory lap over being cleared of colluding with Russian Federation, has run off course with vindictiveness and pushing for Obamacare to be outlawed in full. "So many things took place after that incident that meeting between the Attorney General Lynch and Bill Clinton, a lot of bad things happened right after that, you have to find out".
Speaking on Fox News, Graham said Barr is delaying the release to redact sensitive information, including grand jury testimony and classified information. "General Mike Flynn was entrapped by federal agents that were seeking revenge against Trump", tweeted Charlie Kirk, founder of the conservative group Turning Point USA, who said Flynn faces $5 million in legal fees.
But at her weekly media briefing, Pelosi expressed confidence in Schiff and took a shot at the previous chairman, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California. They have suggested they may eventually need to subpoena it. Jerry Nadler on Wednesday.
Nadler upped the oversight Wednesday by placing a call to Bar. I've seen the Barr report. "He wouldn't commit to that", the congressman said.More news: Jussie Smollett’s Lawyers: Chicago Mayor and Police Owe Actor an Apology

Outside the hearing room, the main battle continued over releasing Mueller's still-confidential report. But he hasn't shattered the ones Baker expresses concern about or any others that threaten the Republic. The American people know that.
"The findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions and have exposed you as having abused your position to knowingly promote false information, having damaged the integrity of this Committee, and undermined faith in USA government institutions", the letter read. "I am very concerned about that", he said. "Barr is going to put out a lot of stuff". Instead, he accused Republicans of being "okay" with Russian collusion in the 2016 election. Part of their work is to determine if anyone sought leverage over Trump, his family or associates.
"Show us the report and we can draw our own conclusions".
"Barr auditioned for the job with a memo saying a president can not obstruct justice", Schiff tweeted. "And it raises questions about what Mr. Barr might have left out of the four dense pages he sent Congress".
He also said that any information relevant to the ongoing investigations that Mueller referred to federal prosecutors around the USA would also be redacted - despite calls from Democrats to release the full report and Trump saying he wouldn't mind if people saw it.
"Even though you deep down and fundamentally you know you've done nothing wrong, you believe you've done nothing wrong, you're warned by so many people that the reason people get tripped up isn't because they've done anything wrong", he said.
