The nation’s capital is anticipating the release as soon as Sunday of Attorney General William Barr’s report to Congress summarizing principal findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Republicans and Democrats stake out positions on how much information should be released to Congress and the public.   

Mueller submitted the still-secret document to Barr on Friday evening, capping an investigation into whether President Donald Trump or those around him conspired in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, a probe that’s cast a cloud over Trump and his administration for almost two years.

“Congress needs that evidence, and the American people need that evidence to make judgments,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat from New York, said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” one of three appearances on Sunday talk shows. “If we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information.” 

Barr, 68, who was sworn in as Trump’s second attorney general about five weeks ago, is working with Deputy General Rod Rosenstein to figure out how to present Mueller’s conclusions, a Justice Department official said. Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, as special counsel in May 2017.

Trump, who’s repeatedly called Mueller’s 22-month investigation a “witch hunt,” hasn’t commented publicly. The White House hadn’t received or been briefed on the Mueller report as of Sunday morning, spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Trump returned to one of his golf courses in Florida Sunday, after having played on Saturday while spending the weekend at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
