Democrats have demanded Barr release the entire almost 400-page report and the underlying evidence that Mueller and Barr used to make their conclusions. People close to him said he raised the policy proposal - to send detained immigrants to sanctuary cities as a way to target his political rivals - in part to shift focus off of the report's release.

Attorney General Barr is likely going to release the "vast majority" of the Mueller report, including showing how it reached its "no collusion" conclusion and begging the question why was there an investigation "in the first place", according to President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Attorney general William Barr is expected to release a redacted version of the Mueller report to Congress in the coming days. In it, Barr said the "special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election".

The summary also indicated that Mueller's team failed to prove that Trump obstructed the investigation, but the probe did not "exonerate" the president.

And we didn't lose it here or there or whatever. "But they are such a hard side to play against". "It's all bulls**t. The victory over Chelsea was encapsulated in a couple of two-minute episodes in the second half.

"In other words, (Barr) thinks as a matter of law a president can't obstruct justice, which is a very wild theory to which most people do not agree", Nadler said.

"The fact is we also need to see the report because it may be that Mueller decided not to prosecute obstruction of justice for various reasons ... but there still may be proof of very bad deeds", he said.

On Twitter, Trump said Saturday, "Why should Radical Left Democrats in Congress have a right to retry and examine the $35,000,000 (two years in the making) No Collusion Mueller Report, when the crime committed was by Crooked Hillary, the DNC and Dirty Cops?"

On Thursday, Rosenstein defended Barr's handling of the Mueller report from critics who have charged him with bias.
