Special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday wrapped up his nearly two-year investigation into Donald Trump and Russia and sent his report to Attorney General William Barr.
No details of Mueller’s findings have been released, but Barr said he may be able to brief congressional leaders on the report as soon as this weekend.
“I am reviewing this report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend,” Barr wrote in a letter on Friday to a group of lawmakers on the House and Senate judiciary committees.
Barr also concluded in his letter that Mueller’s investigation — relentlessly attacked as improper and a “witch hunt” by Trump — was conducted properly. Barr noted that he was required to inform congressional leader if Mueller had done anything “inappropriate or unwarranted.”
“There were no such instances during the Special Counsel’s investigation,” the attorney general said, adding that he would determine how much of the report could eventually be released to Congress and the public.
