Here’s How Republicans Are Reacting To The Mueller Report’s Completion

U.S. Attorney General William Barr leaves his house in McLean Virginia U.S

On Friday, a senior Justice Department official told CBS News that Mueller is not recommending any further indictments, And on Saturday, a senior Justice Department official confirmed Barr would not submit any of his principal conclusions to Congress that day. "The watchword is transparency", Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, said in a joint statement. But many Democrats say Trump should not be immune from a public accounting of his behavior.

'Over the course of the investigation, locals often spotted Mueller on weekends dining with his wife Ann and others at the American style restaurant, ' Politico reported.

Political analysts expect the Mueller report to have a significant impact on the 2020 presidential campaign - how Democrats might be able to use it stop Trump being reelected and how Trump could use it if he is effectively cleared of wrongdoing.

Barr is set to review the long-awaited report on the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and will determine how much to make public.

Fox News is told that part of the objective of the discussion among top Democrat committee members was to signal that just because the Mueller probe is over, that doesn't mean that the House's work is over.

The Justice Department has a policy that sitting presidents can not face criminal charges.


We already know how Republicans and Democrats will spin it.

A Justice Department official said Barr and his deputy w the White House still has not received or been briefed on Mueller's report.ere working closely with principal advisers to determine what to include in a letter to Congress. Barr will not deliver the summary on Saturday, the official said.

Corey Lewandowski, who was Trump's campaign manager in his 2016 presidential run, tweeted: "The Witch Hunt is over!" Barr has a lot of control over how much information will be made public and even revealed to Congress and Trump himself.

"Make the report public", he wrote.

The president had no public events scheduled on Saturday and played golf, Gidley said. In a phone interview with CNN shortly after the news dropped that the investigation was complete, he turned immediately away from the issue of indictments for Trump and associates and instead into getting the details of the report to his committee. Russian Federation says it did not interfere in the election. He's also been implicated in a potential campaign finance violation by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who says Trump asked him to arrange the transactions.

Barr was at the Justice Department Saturday reviewing the report, according to a spokeswoman.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow meddled in the 2016 election with a campaign of email hacking and online propaganda aimed at sowing discord in the United States, hurting Clinton and helping Trump.
