The Department of Justice notified the House Judiciary Committee that it can expect to receive a written summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative conclusions by Sunday at 5 p.m., a lawmaker on the panel told The Hill.
News of the briefing comes after Attorney General William Barr notified lawmakers on the House and Senate Judiciary panels Friday evening that he could be ready to brief lawmakers as soon as this weekend on the “principal conclusions” reached by Mueller in his sprawling 22-month probe.
Since the announcement, a high-level of intrigue has surrounded what the findings could be, but it has also had Congress and the White House bracing for whatever possible the conclusions the report may have.
Lawmakers have urged the Department of Justice to quickly make as much information from the report available to Congress and the public, with some indicating that they will fight to gain access to the underlying evidence that support’s Mueller’s findings.
The White House said Friday that President Trump, who has been traveling this weekend, has not been briefed on the report’s findings.
