Clamor grows for quick release of Mueller report

Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned over his highly-anticipated report to the Justice Department on Friday….

…looking at Russia's role in the 2016 ELECTION and whether President Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow….

In a letter to lawmakers, Attorney General William Barr said Mueller had concluded the probe and that he will now review the report… Barr will then consult the deputy attorney general and Mueller to determine what information can be released to the public.

A senior justice department official on Friday said Mueller is not recommending any further indictments.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the next steps are up to Barr….adding quote: "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report." During the nearly two-year probe, Mueller secured guilty pleas, convictions or indictments of 3 companies and 34 people - including Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Russia has long denied interfering in the 2016 election…while Trump has frequently blasted the probe as a "witch hunt." TRUMP UPSOUND Now, with Mueller closing-up shop...the focus will shift to Barr- a Trump appointee who earlier this year-- said he would release as much of the report as possible…but stopped short of promising to release the entire document.

BARR SOT On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called on Barr to make the FULL REPORT public… SCHUMER SOT Trump's lawyers said that they are pleased that Mueller has delivered his report…and that Barr "will determine the appropriate next steps."
