Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’

Democrats in Congress and an overwhelming majority of the American public are eagerly awaiting the expected release this week of the Mueller report.

Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was appointed to investigate election tampering, alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives and related matters. According to the summary, Mueller found no collusion with Russian Federation but made no definitive conclusions on obstruction of justice.

Since then, Democrats have been pressuring Barr to release the entire report without redactions to show how Mueller and the Department of Justice came to their conclusions. He believes the public should have "tremendous confidence" in Barr's integrity.

Barr, a Trump appointee, submitted a four-page summary of the almost 400-page report to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees last month, in which he stated that Mueller had found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation but had left open the question of whether the president obstructed justice during the probe.

Barr and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein said they had determined that a criminal charge against Trump was not appropriate, based on evidence gathered by Mueller. The attorney general indicated that he would be open to negotiating with congressional leaders who want to see Mueller's underlying evidence once the report is released.

Barr has suggested there may have been "improper surveillance" on President Trump's 2016 campaign and said he was "looking into it".

The president's latest comments come days after he called the probe an attempted "coup", while Barr promised to investigate FBI "spying" on Trump. He has promised to release a redacted version of the full report in April.
