Multiple news outlets reported late Friday afternoon that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller has delivered a confidential report of his findings to Attorney General William Barr, according to the Justice Department.
Barr has publicly promised to make the report public “as much as possible,” insofar as he believes that is consistent with Justice Department regulations and the special counsel statute. Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have vowed to ensure that the document is disclosed in full. Last week the House passed a resolution urging the complete release of the report by a vote of 420-0. And within recent days, President Donald Trump, who has disparaged Mueller, the Office of Special Counsel, and the FBI for pursuing a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” said he looked forward to the report’s release.
A CNN Justice Department correspondent described the report as “very comprehensive.”
