Showdown looms over Mueller report

A showdown over the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report appeared inevitable Saturday as Democrats plotted their strategy and GOP allies of President Trump declared victory over the lack of new indictments.

Attorney General William Barr, the figure now at the center of the fight over Mueller's findings, has said he could tell lawmakers of the main conclusions from the sprawling Russia probe as soon as this weekend, with lawmakers expecting additional briefings in the coming days.

But releasing general findings even a day after the confidential report was submitted is unlikely to quell Democratic calls for a public release. House Democrats are set to discuss their strategy on the report Saturday afternoon as the chairmen of several committees plot their next steps.

News that Mueller completed his investigation and submitted his report to the Justice Department, which arrived on a stormy afternoon in Washington, capped nearly two years of intense speculation about whether the special counsel would turn over evidence that Trumpís campaign conspired with Moscow to interfere in the 2016 election.
