Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted to the attorney general the report on his findings of his investigation into any ties between the Russian government and Trump campaign associates. The scope of his probe included any matters that arose from the investigation.
Barr will now summarize it for lawmakers, in accordance with the law governing the special counsel. It is not clear whether the report or any part of it will be made public -- that's left to Barr's discretion.
Attorney General William Barr has sent a letter to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees informing them that Mueller has concluded his investigation.
"The special counsel has submitted to me today a 'confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions' he has reached," Barr said in the letter. "I am reviewing the report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the special counsel's principal conclusions as soon as this weekend."
Barr also wrote that he would consult with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, and to Mueller himself, to determine what information from the report could be revealed to Congress and the public.
