Today, it was announced that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III completed his investigation regarding alleged “Russian Interference” with the 2016 Election.
In a letter dated March 22, 2019, Attorney General William P. Barr wrote to Chairman Graham, Chairman Nadler, Ranking Member Feinstein, and Ranking Member Collins. He informed them that The Special Counsel had submitted a “confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions”.
Barr has promised to be as transparent as possible, but it’s unclear how extensive or detailed Barr’s own “report” to Congress will be.
The submission of Mueller’s report marks the culmination of his closely held inquiry, a case that has engulfed the Trump administration since its inception and led to multiple guilty pleas from former advisers to the president. With the closing of his investigation, Congress and the newly empowered Democratic House majority will soon assess his findings – and determine what steps to take next.
