A verdict from Robert Mueller's two-year Russian Federation investigation is eagerly awaited in the U.S., and Mr Comey also admits he does not care what the report finds, as long as "justice" and "core American values will have been protected".
In a letter to lawmakers, Barr said Mueller had concluded the probe, that he is reviewing the report and will be consulting the deputy attorney general and Mueller to determine what information from it can be released to Congress.
The comprehensive report - still confidential for now - marks the end of Mueller's probe but sets the stage for big public fights to come.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted: "The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course".
Trump has denied collusion and obstruction. Shortly after news of its submission, however, the ACLU demanded the report not be concealed from the voting public.

Attorney General William Barr is required only to say the investigation has concluded and describe or explain any times when he or Rosenstein decided an action Mueller proposed "was so inappropriate or unwarranted" that it should not be pursued. "I have no idea", he told reporters at the White House, per NBC News. "After watching Barr's testimony during his confirmation hearing, I do not believe AG Barr intends to release the Mueller report in full to Congress", said Rep Ted Lieu, a member of the judiciary committee. Such a move by Democrats would likely be vigorously contested by the Trump administration.
Even if Mueller's final report does not implicate the president in criminal conduct, the investigation was far from fruitless.
A Justice Department official described the report as "comprehensive" and said those principal conclusions are "expected to be made public".
Trump fired Barr's predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in November after complaining for months about Sessions' 2017 decision to recuse himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. "I'm also not rooting for Mr. Mueller to "clear" the president".
