Barr faces Senate questions on Mueller report

Attorney General William Barr is set for a grilling on Capitol Hill Wednesday, a day after multiple media reports said special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Barr objecting to his initial characterization of the Mueller report's findings.

According to the Washington Post, Mueller told Barr in a letter that his four-page summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the investigation’s conclusions.

That's expected to come up as Barr faces questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee about his handling of the special counsel’s report.

Barr said he and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, had determined there was insufficient evidence to establish the president committed obstruction of justice.

The full - partially redacted - report described in extensive and sometimes unflattering detail how Trump tried to impede the probe, but it stopped short of concluding he had committed a crime.

Wednesday marks the first time a member of President Donald Trump's administration has had to testify about the contents of the Mueller report on whether Moscow conspired with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election and whether the president obstructed justice.
