Mueller report: Barr won't commit to sharing full findings, Democrat says

Trump takes victory lap at Capitol Hill, parties start to pivot past Russia

In the four-page summary, Mueller found that there was conclusive evidence that Russian Federation did interfere in the election, both through a coordinated campaign of disinformation and by hacking emails from Hillary Clinton's election team. Just 43% feel Congress ought to end the investigation completely following the release of Barr's summary of Mueller's findings.

The Times later reported that Mueller's report - which Barr said cleared President Trump of collusion with Russian Federation but not of obstruction of justice - was more than 300 pages. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that he's combing through Mueller's report and removing classified, grand jury and other information in hopes of releasing the rest to Congress.

The House Intelligence Committee has demanded a release of the full Mueller report by April 2, 2019.

Trump has said he "wouldn't mind" if the full report were released.

"Millions of document pages, millions and millions of document pages, and after that there was no collusion, there was no obstruction".

Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to resign from his House Intelligence Committee chairman post on Thursday, alleging he was unfit for office because of his belief that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election.

Katko joins failed bid to override Trump veto on border emergency
Trump wants to use his emergency order to redirect about $3.6 billion budgeted for military construction projects. The wall funding dispute led to a shutdown of about a quarter of the federal government starting on December 21.

"House Democrats did not win the election on collusion; we didn't win the election on impeachment; we didn't win the election on obstruction of justice", said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of NY, the Democratic Caucus chairman.

Schiff angrily refused and said some of the actions of Trump and his associates amounted to "collusion" and "compromise". This is obviously an attempt at some political leverage here, but if Paul actually votes against releasing information from the Mueller report, it goes against his lengthy commitment toward open, transparent government in order to curry favor from the president. If not, they have suggested subpoenas could be issued.

"Barr auditioned for the job with a memo saying a president can not obstruct justice", Schiff tweeted. Which, we now know, is the elusive "what is true" Comey's "honest group of people" were trying to find out. But lawmakers say what they really want is documentation of everything - and an idea of how that evidence guided Mueller's conclusions.

The Justice Department official described the still-secret report as more than 300 pages, while a second official said it was between 300 and 400 pages, not including exhibits.

A second United States Senate committee on Wednesday (March 27) sought to examine the motives of federal agents and investigators who launched the Trump-Russia probe as a Republican effort gathered momentum to seek retribution on behalf of President Donald Trump.

Holt then played the portion of his infamous interview with Trump, conducted shortly after Comey was sacked, in which Trump made the statement, "In fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story.'" Asked what he was thinking when he heard that statement, Comey said he thought it was potentially obstruction of justice, and he hoped that someone would look into it.
