The New York Times first reported Thursday that the report was more than 300 pages.

The letter cited the decision by special counsel Robert Mueller to end his investigation without finding that Trump associates conspired with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election by computer hacking or social media broadsides against Mr. Trump's political rival Hillary Clinton.

What would determine whether the investigation was legitimate would be more information about those FISA Court warrants, but also the contents of Mueller's report.

William Barr is planning to release the Mueller report in April. He was the FBI Director for 12 years.

He said Wednesday that Barr had "attempted to exonerate the President" from obstruction of justice allegations.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, gave an interview to the Washington Post, where he rejected Mueller's findings, stating that "undoubtedly there is collusion".

"We don't need to see Paul Manafort's ostrich jacket, but we do need to know that it's there", says Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Democratic member of the Judiciary panel.

Barr appears to be moving forward on sending Congress an additional, redacted report. But you'll never see Trump apologize for stuff like "birtherism" and Trump's hatred and obsession with Obama only intensified after the Mueller Report, with a vindictive Trump blaming Obama administration staffers for the investigation.

The president said he plans to declassify and release the documents in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation sought a secret court's permission for surveillance of the Trump campaign. They have suggested they may eventually try to subpoena it.

"He knew he was lying", Mr. Trump said.

So he wants to bring in people like former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice to testify before Congress about how it all happened. "We're not happy about it, to put it mildly", Nadler said after his own call with Barr.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he's hesitant to agree to releasing information from Mueller that would "throw innocent people who've not been charged under the bus".

Mr Johnson also hopes to unearth facts about alleged discussions at the Justice Department both to surreptitiously record conversations with Mr Trump and to approach Cabinet members about replacing him under the US Constitution's 25th Amendment.

The President was interviewed by Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday night to "react" to the Mueller report. We know many other federal investigations of Trump's businesses, family, and inner circle continue - why can't the president interfere in any of these matters, if he faces no punishment for his obstruction of the Russian Federation probe? "Let's have somebody like a Mueller to look at the other side of the story".
