Release of Mueller report up to Barr: Trump

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the release of any report on the Russia investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be totally up to U.S. Attorney General William Barr.

Trump's comment came as CNN reported that the Justice Department may announce as early as next week that Mueller has given Barr his report on the probe.

Release of Mueller report up to Barr: Trump

President Trump on Wednesday said it was up to newly-arrived Attorney General William Barr to decide when Rober Mueller's potentially-explosive report on the Russian probe would be unveiled... Barely a week on the job, Barr - who now oversees Mueller's Investigation -has not tipped his hand on how or even whether he will release the report to the public..

But On Wednesdayā€¦citing unnamed sourcesā€¦ CNN reported that the Justice Department MAY receive the final report from Mueller as early as next weekā€¦leaving it up to Barr how it will be handled (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "He's a tremendous man and tremendous person who really respects this country and respects the Justice Department.

So that'll be totally up to him." Trump deferred to Barr as the White House prepared to head to Vietnam next week for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.

Those comments contrast sharply with Trump's harsh words toward Mueller and the probe he has led since last June looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 race and whether the Trump campaign may have worked with Moscow..

Democrats have been concerned that Barr will LIMIT what's made public.

During his confirmation hearings last month, Barr pledged to release as much as possibleā€¦but stopped short of promising to publicize the entire report.

(SOUDNBITE) (English) THEN-ATTORNEY GENERAL NOMINEE WILLIAM BARR SAYING: "The country needs a credible resolution to these issues.

And if confirmed, I will not permit partisan politics, personal interests, or any other improper consideration to interfere with this, or any other investigation." So far, 34 individuals and three companies have pleaded guilty, been indicted, or otherwise swept up in the inquiryā€¦including several former Trump advisers.

But no matter the findings of Mueller's reportā€¦Trump's legal scrutiny will be far from overā€¦with newly empowered Democrats in the House ramping up their own investigations of the Trump administrationā€¦ ā€¦and the Mueller probe having spawned several new investigations being handled by other officesā€¦ investigations that will carry on AFTER Mueller's work is done.
