Mueller report delivered to Attorney General

Donald Trump Leaves for Mar-a-Lago Amidst Mueller Report Rumors

As Steve notes, special counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report to attorney general William Barr.

The comprehensive report - still confidential for now - marks the end of Mueller's probe but sets the stage for big public fights to come. It also discloses, in accordance with federal regulations, that Mueller was not, at any point, overruled by Barr or by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the course of his investigation.

President Trump urged the Attorney General Thursday to publicly release the special counsel's findings; saying "let it come out" and allow the American people to "see it".

Mueller did not speak publicly during his almost two-year investigation into Trump and his team. "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report". "I have no idea", he told reporters at the White House, per NBC News.

The last president to be impeached by the House, Democrat Bill Clinton, was acquitted by the Senate in 1999 on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, meaning he was not removed from office.

In his letter to Congress' judiciary committee leaders - Senators Lindsey Graham and Dianne Feinstein and Congressmen Jerrold Nadler and Doug Collins - Mr Barr confirmed there were no instances during the investigation where the Department of Justice ordered Mr Mueller to not take action. Or is it because Mueller has concluded, James Comey style, that Trump did collude and/or interfere but that his conduct doesn't rise to the level of a crime?

Even as Trump blasted Mueller's team, his White House and campaign produced thousands of documents for the special counsel, and dozens of his aides were interviewed.

While Mueller's investigation is finished, the investigations into Trump, his business and his administration are far from over.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, echoed Trump's own earlier call to release the report.

Those included a series of figures close to Trump, including his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn; his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort; his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen; and a former close associate, Roger Stone.

In a joint statement, they said Barr must not give Trump, his lawyers or staff any "sneak preview" of the findings or evidence.

If the DOJ decides not to make the Mueller report public, Cole added, "Congress should use its subpoena powers to make sure the truth sees the light of day". He wrote that he was reviewing the report to determine what could be shared with the public and the committee.

Other panelists agreed with Tur, pointing out that Mueller may already have significant evidence against Trump that he has not yet released.
