Barr faces Congress, first time since Mueller report

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Attorney General William Barr appeared before a U.S. congressional panel on Tuesday for the first time since Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The hearing before a House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee is meant to explore the Trump administration's $29 billion fiscal 2020 budget request for the Justice Department, but Barr is likely to face questions about Mueller's final report and when a redacted version will be delivered to Congress.

Mueller turned his confidential report over to Barr on March 22 following a 22-month-long probe into whether Donald Trump may have colluded with Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign and whether Trump later obstructed inquiries into the matter.

On March 24, Barr released a four-page letter to Congress laying out what he said were Mueller's main findings.

Barr is expected to submit a redacted copy of the full report to the public and Congress by mid-April, or even sooner.

Democrats have called for the report to be released in full.

They have said they want to review the underlying evidence after Barr in his letter said that Mueller's investigation did not establish collusion with Russia.

Many lawmakers were irked that Barr took it upon himself to decide that Trump should not be charged with obstruction of justice, after saying that Mueller's report laid out evidence "on both sides" of the question without reaching a conclusion.
