Mueller report brings moment of reckoning to USA politics

Attorney General William Barr

Democrats planned the 3 p.m. conference call to discuss strategy and their next steps after they were notified Friday afternoon that Mueller had sent his completed report to Attorney General William Barr. The White House has not received or been briefed on the report, spokesman Hogan Gidley said on Sunday morning.

It remains unclear when and how much of the report will be shared with Congress and the public, according to The New York Times, which reported that the decision is up to the attorney general.

The American people deserve the truth.

Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, the two top Democrats in Congress, said the investigation focused on questions that "go to the integrity of our democracy itself: whether foreign powers corruptly interfered in our elections, and whether unlawful means were used to hinder that investigation".

Trump's business, including negotiations over building a Trump tower in Moscow, his charity and his inaugural committee remain under investigation. He racked up 37 indictments, convictions or plea deals (nearly 200 charges) from three Russian companies and other individuals, including the president's former campaign chief, his former deputy campaign chief, his former national security adviser and his former personal lawyer. Let me say further, we know a number of things.

Two years ago, when Mueller first set up shop, his arrival provided a semblance of order after Trump's surprise election night victory and the questions raised by the intelligence community's January 2017 findings that Russian Federation interfered with the election in hopes of tilting the outcome to Trump.

'Whack job': Trump escalates feud with Conway's husband
Conway declined to comment on the fight's impact on his career and refused to say anything at all about his marriage. In a tweet, Trump wrote that George Conway is upset that he did not get a job in the Trump administration.

Under Department of Justice regulations, Barr is empowered to decide how much to disclose publicly.

"We call on the Department of Justice to release the report swiftly, after minimally redacting any information that is properly withheld", the petition states.

The DOJ was "determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgement", Mr Nadler said on Twitter. Congress requires the full report and the underlying documents so that the Committees can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues the Mueller report may raise.

"I think in round one, the president should be very happy", Sale said. They also point to precedent involving the Justice Department providing 880,000 pages of internal material a year ago to the House as part of the GOP probe into the FBI's Hillary Clinton investigation - as well as the department providing records to the Hill over the Watergate probe.

President Donald Trump is on the golf course in Florida a day after special counsel Robert Mueller closed his 22-month-long Russian Federation investigation with no new charges.

He said that therefore, Congress will "look at a broader picture", when investigating President Donald Trump. The Justice Department was expected to release the main findings as soon as Saturday.
