Among her many tweets on the Mueller probe, journalist and national security analysis Marcy Wheeler (@emptywheel), who has followed the investigation closely, noted Friday evening that "Barr's willingness to issue quick public summary probably means it is not that damning towards Trump".

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley says the White House has not received and has not been briefed on the Russian Federation report issued by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The American people deserve the truth. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement to her Democratic colleagues in advance of their call asking that any briefings about the Mueller report be "unclassified so that members can speak freely about every aspect of the report".

When Trump is long gone, what will be remembered is that neither Mueller, Sessions, Comey, Rod J. Rosenstein, William P. Barr, nor even the hapless Matthew G. Whitaker, allowed Trump to thwart the investigation.

Mueller's court filings already showed a number of top Trump aides had contact with Russians during the campaign and after the election and that some of them lied about it.

Pelosi wrote, "Even if DOJ chooses not to prosecute additional individuals, the underlying findings must be provided to Congress and the American people".

During a Sunday morning interview on CNN, Nadler insisted that "we know there is some collusion", referring to the Trump Tower meeting that has been the target of numerous false reports.

As part of their effort to make sure the report sees the light of day, the ACLU launched a petition directed at the Justice Department.

Republicans and Democrats are anxiously awaiting the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller III, as each side braced Sunday for a fresh burst of fighting between the White House and Congress over Russia's election interference and the power of the presidency.

Mueller's investigation is known to have concluded without a recommendation for further indictments after having snared almost three dozen people, senior Trump campaign operatives among them.

"If Lindsey's speaking, I want to come down here, for two reasons", Trump said. We have yet to find out whether, but for Justice Department policy against indicting a sitting president, Trump would have been charged with obstruction or other crimes.

"Attorney General Barr must make the #Mueller report public and provide all underlying documents to Congress without delay", he said.

None of those charges directly related to the allegations of collusion between the campaign and Moscow - allegations that President Trump has always denied. It's expected to focus on whether President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to sway the election and whether President Trump later sought to obstruct the investigation.

"Well, I don't know", Nadler said. The desire to release the report might not actually be a Dems vs. GOP thing however: Recall that the House of Representatives voted 420-0 on a resolution to release the report, though it's not clear where the Senate stands. Sen.

No more indictments: Did press go too far on probe?
