Barr returns to Capitol Hill, where he'll face more Mueller questions

Barr returns to Capitol Hill, where he'll face more Mueller questions

Speaking at the subcommittee, Mr Barr was questioned on why lawmakers had not been given special counsel Robert Mueller's full report and evidence. The almost 400-page report is being scoured now to remove grand jury information and details relating to pending investigations.

Mr Barr did confirm however, that he will release the report "within a week". North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, a Trump confidant who has raised concerns about Justice Department conduct investigating Trump, tweeted that Barr's willingness to step in is "massive". Democrats have escalated criticism over Barr's handling of the document and say they will not accept any redactions. "When we do so, if we don't get everything, we will issue a subpoena and go to court". He has said that he did not intend for his four-page summary of Mueller's main conclusions to be an "exhaustive recounting" of his work and that he could not immediately release the entire report because it included grand jury material and other sensitive information that needed to be redacted. "And we have a preview of Barr's color-coding system: Let's see: Black means confidential, red means grand jury information, and yellow means the Moscow Ritz Carlton".

US Democrats demand Trump tax returns by April 23
In September 2016, in his first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, Trump said not paying federal taxes "makes me smart".

The attorney general's explosive testimony marked his Capitol Hill appearance since he revealed the central findings of Mueller's investigation, and he indicated the full report - with redactions - would be made public within the week.

"This process is going along very well and my original timetable of being able to release this by mid-April stands", Barr said. The Democrats are upset that Barr released a letter summarizing Mueller's findings and those findings blew up more than two years of claims that Trump is a RUSSIAN asset who worked with the RUSSIANS to win the presidential election.

William Barr, 68, appeared on Capitol Hill yesterday to talk about budget matters but faced complaints about his letter of March 24 in which he said that the special counsel Robert Mueller had cleared the Trump presidential campaign of conspiring with Russian Federation, and that there was evidence both for and against obstruction of justice. Democrats have expressed concern that his version will hide wrongdoing by the president and are frustrated by the four-page summary letter he released last month that they say paints Mueller's findings in an overly favorable way for the president.

"So numerous questions here today have gone toward a grassy knoll conspiracy theory", Aderholt said. He also said that Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice, instead presenting evidence on both sides of the question. Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided that the evidence was insufficient to establish obstruction.
