AG Barr: 'I've said what I'm going to say' about the Mueller report
In a House subcommittee hearing, Attorney General William Barr declined to answer a question from Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., over whether the White House had seen special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report before or after he released his summary of Mueller's findings.
"I said what I'm going say about the report today," he said. "I've already laid out the process that is going forward to release these reports hopefully within a week, and I'm not going to say anything more about it until the report is out and everyone has a chance to look at it."
The hearing is largely about the Justice Department's budget request, but that hasn't prevented lawmakers from asking questions about the Mueller report's public release, possible redactions and President Donald Trump's comments on its findings.
