"Does Mueller use any language suggesting that a reasonable prosecutor acting in her discretion could have charged President Trump with obstruction but for DOJ policy against indicting a sitting President?" he said. He has promised to release a redacted version of the full report in April. "What he said is, 'Look, it's going to take a while to process the report".
Attorney General Barr is likely going to release the "vast majority" of the Mueller report, including showing how it reached its "no collusion" conclusion and begging the question why was there an investigation "in the first place", according to President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Nadler noted that Barr, before he became the country's top law enforcement official, wrote that Trump could not obstruct justice because the president "is the boss of the Justice Department and could order it around to institute an investigation, to eliminate an investigation or could not be questioned about that".
Last month, Barr released a summary of Mueller's findings, almost 48 hours after the special counsel's investigation was completed.
Last month, Barr released a letter saying Mueller had not established evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, but also saying Mueller had provided evidence of alleged obstruction of justice by Donald Trump while declining to recommend prosecution.
"We should see and judge for ourselves and that is for Congress to judge if the president obstructed justice or not", the New York Democrat told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.
The report states Democrats are furious with the GOP lawmaker who ran interference for the president when Republicans controlled the House. Barr said he would release more of the report but would need time to make the necessary redactions before it could be made public.
