Top House Judiciary GOPer Tells Nadler To Bring Mueller In To Testify

"What I can tell you is that people inside the White House are less on a victory tour than they were a couple weeks ago, and they're waiting for what this thing says", the reporter continued.

That has caused frustration among members of Mueller's team, who have told associates they are frustrated with the limited information provided about their almost two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether US President Donald Trump sought to obstruct justice. They declined to pursue, leaving members of Mueller's team angry enough to leak their displeasure to Democrats and the mainstream media, including both The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Every page of Mueller's report contains a warning that it might contain confidential material, so Barr decided first to release the report's main findings as quickly as possible, Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said.

Trump is also likely concerned about reports that surfaced last week, indicating that some members of Mueller's core team are unhappy with the way their conclusions, particularly on the subject of the president's "obstruction", were characterized in a four-page letter issued by Attorney General Robert Barr.

"Attorney General Barr was never part of this investigation, and instead simply reviewed the special counsel's final report and has provided Congress, so far, with the special counsel's principal conclusions, he wrote".

Ultimately, the president posted a New York Post article encouraging Democrats to "give up" - a clear shot across the bow of Democratic-led House committees now ramping up their own investigations of the president, his family, and his businesses.

Recently completed, the report stemmed from a law enforcement and counterintelligence investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. If he can keep Democrats' narrative focused on the Mueller report, Parcells believes it could be to his benefit.

The meeting included a discussion about a proposal to resolve the conflict in Ukraine in terms favourable to the Kremlin, an issue that has damaged Russia's relations with the West. Prosecutors also said Manafort shared Trump campaign polling data with Kilimnik, although the significance of that act remains unclear.

One former White House official who was involved in the investigation said the public should approach Mueller prosecutors' decision to express their frustration with Barr with seriousness, given the enormity of what's at stake. What remains to be seen is how much of the report will be kept from public view.

Barr has faced criticism since penning his letter that he unduly sanitized the full report in Trump's favor, including on the key question of whether the president obstructed justice. That makes it unclear if any findings related to the Middle East will appear in the report.
