Mueller report to be pub­lic within week, Barr says

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Ap­pear­ing be­fore Congress to dis­cuss the Jus­tice Depart­ment bud­get, At­tor­ney Gen­eral Wil­liam P. Barr said Tues­day he will de­liver a redacted ver­sion of spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller’s report to the law­mak­ers and the pub­lic within a week, re­it­er­at­ing his prom­ise to re­lease it by mid-April.

Barr tried to keep the con­ver­sa­tion fo­cused on the depart­ment’s pro­posed $29.2 bil­lion bud­get, which in­cludes money for 100 new im­mi­gra­tion judges. But pressed by Democrats about his han­dling of the Mueller report, Barr re­it­er­ated his vow to be as trans­par­ent as pos­si­ble about redac­tions.
