A.G. Bill Barr: Will Release Mueller Report "Within A Week"


Attorney General William Barr told a House subcommittee Tuesday morning that he would be able to release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report "within a week." He had previously said he would aim to release the report mid-April.

"Within a week, I will be in a position to release the report to the public and then I will engage with the chairman of the Judiciary committees," Barr said.

Barr said he would be "glad to talk to Chairman Nadler and Chairman Graham as to whether they feel they need more information and see if there’s a way we could accommodate that."

"I do think it’s important that the public have an opportunity to review the results of the special counsel’s work," Barr said. "We will color-code the excisions from the report and we will provide explanatory notes describing the basis for each redaction."

"This process is going very well and my original timetable for being able to release this by mid-April stands, and so I think that from my standpoint, by within a week, I will be in a position to release the report to the public."
