Attorney general defends handling of Mueller’s Russian Federation report

Attorney General Barr anticipates Mueller report will be released within a week

‘Conclusion – no collusion’: Trump says he hasn’t read Mueller Report, calls it ‘waste of time’

Mueller's decision to skip prosecutorial judgment "leaves it to the attorney general to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime", Barr wrote.

In another tweet, Trump called the report "a total waste of time".

But according to news accounts, Mueller's prosecutors have told associates they were dismayed at the cryptic account of the Mueller report issued by Barr, saying the full report is a more damaging account of Trump's actions. He also asked Barr to hand over communications between the special counsel's team and the department about the report.

Attorney General William Barr is reviewing the almost 400-page report and says he plans to release it in the coming days after redacting confidential information, such as secret grand jury testimony or foreign intelligence that was included in the report.

A lawyer for President Trump has blasted US House Democrats' request for six years of Mr Trump's tax returns as "a misguided attempt" to politicise the tax laws, accusing them of harassment and interference in IRS audits.

Augusta National: Hewson and Mehaffey to make history at home of Masters
Fassi finished the 54-hole tournament at 6-under par, four shots behind defending NCAA champion Jennifer Kupcho of Wake Forest. Kupcho was even through 12 holes before coming on in a big way down the stretch, playing her last six holes in 5 under.

But news media reports said that members of Mueller's team were unhappy with the way Barr had characterized its main conclusions in his four-page summary.

In June 2018, with Sessions's job already known to be imperilled, Barr sent an unsolicited legal memo to the Justice Department and White House strongly criticising the Mueller investigation and its impingement on the president's prerogatives.

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

"The Department continues to work with the Special Counsel on appropriate redactions to the report so that it can be released to Congress and the public", Kupec said in a statement. "And it's not up to the attorney general to decide with respect to that or with respect to other material that he decides Congress can't see".

He told Congress in a letter last week he must redact material that was presented to a grand jury, as required by law, as well as information that could reveal U.S. intelligence agencies' sources and methods.

That came one day after they were leaked to much "fanfare ". "We are definitely delighted with the result", Glat said. The Jets have generated a lot of buzz this offseason, hiring coach Adam Gase and signing star free agents C.J.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to say whether this means there will be no claims of executive privilege invoked over any part of Mueller's report or whether Barr might, at some point, advise Trump to invoke the privilege over some sections, or whether Barr might do so unilaterally. Claims were made that he colluded with Russian Federation during the election, in which Trump beat rival Hillary Clinton to the presidency.

The department said those summaries include secret grand jury information that can not under law be made public.

Barr did not meet a demand by Democrats in the US House of Representatives to provide the unredacted report to lawmakers by April 2.

"Well, the attorney general said there was no obstruction of justice".

On Friday, the Justice Department, commenting on a fresh ruling in a case on grand jury secrecy, signalled its stance against that.
