That happened three weeks ago, but after Attorney General William Barr released a four-page summary of the almost 400-page report, there has been a new anticipation - and growing acrimony - for the report to be released to members of Congress and the public.

"Our goal is to respond as quick as we can; given the length of the report, it may take some time to respond", Sekulow said.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein pushed back Thursday against allegations that Attorney General William Barr had been biased in his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report, calling such accusations "bizarre".

"Does Mueller use any language suggesting that a reasonable prosecutor acting in her discretion could have charged President Trump with obstruction but for DOJ policy against indicting a sitting President?" he said.

Last month, Barr released a summary of Mueller's findings, almost 48 hours after the special counsel's investigation was completed.

Then, the next day, before a panel of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Barr stoked a whole new controversy when he said he'd launched his own informal inquiry into the origins of the FBI's initial counterintelligence investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign, which began the summer of that year at the height of the White House race.

"Nunes" move is an escalation by Trump's allies in Congress to pivot from Mueller's still-unreleased findings to the conduct of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department investigators who initiated the Russian Federation probe", Politico reports.

"In other words, (Barr) thinks as a matter of law a president can't obstruct justice, which is a very wild theory to which most people do not agree", Nadler said. But there still may have been proof of some very bad deeds and very bad motives.

The report states Democrats are furious with the GOP lawmaker who ran interference for the president when Republicans controlled the House.

Barr has said he will release as much of the Mueller report as possible, while excluding material Mueller included from secret grand jury testimony and confidential US intelligence sources.
