UPDATE (05/08/19): The House Judiciary Committee has voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena to provide Congress with the full, unredacted Mueller report. The resolution now moves to the House floor for a final vote. If passed by a simple House majority, Barr will be held in contempt.
**UPDATE (04/18/19):**Attorney General Bill Barr has released a redacted version of Mueller's report. Trump's personal and White House lawyers have confirmed they reviewed the unredacted report days before it was censored and presented to the American people, making it more essential than ever that Congress obtain the full report and hear testimony from key players in the report's creation.
After 674 days, 34 indictments, and an untold number of cases handed over to district departments for continued investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report on Russia's interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William Barr, officially ending the probe. The report has been described as “comprehensive” by Justice Department officials, and is reported to be nearly 400 pages long. However, due to the rules governing the appointment of special counsels, the report's release to Congress and the public is up to AG Barr.
Currently it is unclear if and when Barr will provide more information on Muller’s findings. A 3.5-page summary is an unacceptable replacement for the lengthy report, which contains details on the Trump campaign’s conduct in regards to Russia and obstruction of justice.
