Sunday: Schiff, Jeffries, Allen

FAN Editor

After two years, scores of subpoenas, and dozens of criminal charges, special counsel Robert Mueller has delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr.

Mueller’s probe leaves in its wake years of prison sentences, from the president’s former campaign manager down to his longtime personal attorney and fixer. And the probe has spawned a slew of investigations into President Trump and his associates that will likely live on long after Mueller closes shop.

But for now, Washington is bracing for a fight over Mueller’s report. From Capitol Hill to the 2020 campaign trail, Democrats and Republicans are clamoring for Mueller’s report to be made public in its entirety.

The president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, remains patient, saying the timing of the report’s release is “up to DOJ” and that he is “confident it will be handled properly.”

How did the Russia investigation begin?

And in a letter to the congressional judiciary committees, Barr assured top lawmakers that he remains “committed to as much transparency as possible.”

As for when congressional leaders could learn the contents of the report, Barr says he “may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.”
