Trump questions why Democrats should get Mueller report

"And that's for Congress to judge whether the president obstructed justice or not, and the public ultimately". But even when the report is released, it's unlikely the politically divisive debate that has been the hallmark of President Trump's tenure in office will be resolved. According to the summary, Mueller found no collusion with Russian Federation but made no definitive conclusions on obstruction of justice. Rather, Mueller's team wrote, according to Barr, that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him". He believes the public should have "tremendous confidence" in Barr's integrity.

Mueller turned over the report on his almost two-year investigation into the election on March 22, and two days later Barr released a four page summary of the special counsel's "key findings".

While the full Mueller report is guarded by Justice Department privacy protections and regulations, including classified grand jury testimony, Giuliani still expects a "full explanation of Mueller", according to the report. He has promised to release a redacted version of the full report in April. The attorney general indicated that he would be open to negotiating with congressional leaders who want to see Mueller's underlying evidence once the report is released.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein pushed back Thursday against allegations that Attorney General William Barr had been biased in his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report, calling such accusations "bizarre".

Barr said in congressional testimony Wednesday that he the believes the DOJ "spied" on the Trump campaign and he plans to open a DOJ investigation into the origins of the Russian Federation probe.
