Read Barr’s prepared remarks for House budget hearing (Mueller isn’t mentioned)

U.S. House judiciary chair seeks any Mueller summaries on Trump Russia probe reportMore

After Washington waited almost two years for Mueller to conduct his investigation, Barr released a letter last month stating that the special counsel found no evidence the Trump campaign "conspired or coordinated" with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr testifies on the Justice Department's budget proposal before a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., April 9, 2019.

Nadler said he "fully" agreed, but stressed that Mueller should testify after the full report is delivered to Congress and Barr testifies.

The attorney general reiterated that he would try to make public as much of the Mueller report as possible and would rely "on my own discretion" during the redaction process.

Barr gave no indication of how much of the report will be obscured but said he was working with Mueller on restricting details about secret grand jury information, USA intelligence gathering and ongoing criminal cases as well as potentially damaging information about peripheral players who were not charged in the Russian Federation probe.

Barr said he expects to release a redacted copy of the report next week.

Luke Walton, Lakers Mutually Part Ways
Not long after Vlade Divac signed a four-year contract extension to remain Kings general manager, he fired Dave Joerger. The Lakers finished 10th in the Western Conference, failing to reach the play-offs for the sixth straight year.

Barr was also questioned about the initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil members of the Trump campaign.

Barr said he did not have insight into why some on Mueller's team were upset. Moreover, while Mueller did not reach a conclusion as to whether Trump obstructed justice, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that the president did not.

"I'm glad to talk to Chairman Nadler and Chairman Graham as to whether they feel they need more information and if there's a way we can accommodate that", Barr said. The letter said that Mueller did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and Trump associates, and that Barr did not believe the evidence in the report was sufficient to prove the president had obstructed justice.

The Justice Department, Enlow said, has already agreed to put EPIC's request on an expedited track but other requests are ahead of it.

With the goal to discredit what's coming, Trump and his allies have unleashed a series of broadsides against Mueller's team and the Democrats pushing for full release of the final report. When asked, Barr said those details would likely be in the public version of the report. "So I think it's important in our oversight role to release the full report to Congress". Mueller also summarized the reasoning for and against bringing an obstruction charge against Trump.

In excerpts from her opening statement released Monday night, House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said that Barr's summary letter "raises more questions than it answers". "But, I'll have to say, until someone shows me a provision in 6 (e) that permits its release, Congress doesn't get 6 (e)". Brian Schatz if he wanted to rephrase his language, Barr said, "I'm not sure of all the connotations of that word that you're referring to, but you know, unauthorized surveillance".
