No Rush To Release Mueller Report: DC Judge

Justice Department attorney Courtney Enlow said the two sides should engage after the anticipated release of the Mueller report in mid-April, arguing that they would "better understand the world we're living in".

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and other prominent Republicans have already indicated plans to launch new probes into how the investigation started, once the furor over the impending release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report has cooled.

A federal judge in Washington refused on Tuesday to fast-track the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russian Federation investigation, ruling that a group suing for those records had failed to show that it would be irreparably harmed by a slower disclosure process. Once the report is released, it could be so explosive that the additional details are not worth the effort; on the other hand, the report as released by Barr could portray Trump much more favorably than it is expected to, which could take the wind out of the sails for more aggressive tactics from Democrats.

LUCAS: Now, Barr also said that all of the redactions will have a note explaining why the information is being kept secret.

"As I've stated before, in order to ensure that our immigration system works properly, we must secure our nation's borders, and we must ensure that our laws allow us to process, hold, and remove those who violate our immigration laws", Barr says.

"I think they did what they had to do".

Barr later said that although he did not have specific evidence of wrongdoing, "I do have questions about it".

On his program Tuesday, Limbaugh said Democrats are being "driven mad", and they can not accept that there is no Trump-Russia collusion nor a conspiracy at the Justice Department to cover it up. Every single thing about it. A source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg Barr will be examining the conduct of both the FBI and the Department of Justice for the possibility their "collusion" investigations were motivated by "anti-Trump bias". "The question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated", meaning whether it was legally justified.

"I suspect that they probably wanted more put out", Barr said.

Asked again about spying at the end of the hearing, Barr tempered his tone. When asked if he has shown or discussed the report with the White House, Barr notably declined to answer.

That warrant included a reference to research that was conducted by an ex-British spy who was funded by Democrats to look into Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Though he said the document will be redacted to withhold negative information about peripheral figures in the investigation, he said that would not apply to Trump, who is an officeholder and central to the probe. The letter on the 29th, I don't believe that was reviewed by Mr. Mueller or that he participated in drafting that letter.

Barr also wrote that Mueller's office neither fully implicated nor exonerated Trump on the question of obstruction of justice; Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided Mueller's findings were "not sufficient", as Barr wrote.
