DOJ to announce end of Mueller investigation as early as next week — and Barr will submit 'summary' to Congress: CNN

Attorney General Bill Barr is reportedly preparing to release special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian collusion as early as next week, CNN reported Wednesday.

People familiar with the Justice Department’s preparations told CNN that the new attorney general plans to submit the confidential report to Congress “soon after” it’s released.

“The precise timing of the announcement is subject to change,” the report noted.

As CNN noted, special counsel regulations require Mueller to submit to the AG a confidential report on his findings once his investigation is finished. No such requirements exist for him to submit it to Congress or the public, however.
