Attorney General William Barr is facing growing concerns that his four-page description of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 400-page Russia report may have obscured key findings. Sources say Mueller team members are unsatisfied with Barr’s summary, which partially exonerated President Donald Trump, while protesters in several dozen U.S. cities demanded the release of the full report. Yesterday, Barr defended his decision to release the “bottom-line findings” first.
Why the delay? Justice Department officials claim Mueller’s report — and his team’s summaries — included grand jury information that complicated a quick release.
