Attorney General William Barr confirmed Tuesday during Congressional testimony that the Department of Justice will release special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report to the public “within a week.”
“I do think it’s important that the public has the opportunity to learn the results of the special counsel’s work… You’ll recognize that I’m operating under a regulation that was put together during the Clinton administration to not provide for the publication of the report, but I’m relying on my own discretion,” said the Attorney General.
“This process is going along very well… My original timetable for a mid-April release stands. Within a week I’ll be in a position to release the report to the public,” he added.

COLLUSION DELUSION: Rashida Tlaib Introduces Bill Urging Trump’s Impeachment
Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib officially introduced legislation this week that urged the impeachment of President Trump; completely ignoring Robert Mueller’s final report that found absolutely “no collusion” between the President and Russian officials.
The resolution urges the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether the Commander-in-Chief committed “any offenses” that would warrant impeachment proceedings.
The legislation inquires “whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America,” adding “the Committee on the Judiciary or any subcommittee or task force designated by the Committee may, in connection with the inquiry under this resolution, take affidavits and depositions by a member, counsel, or consultant of the Committee, pursuant to notice or subpoena.”
Tlaib made national headlines in January when she vowed to “Impeach the Motherf***er!” just hours after being officially sworn-in as a Member of Congress.
