Attorney General Barr will send Congress the 'highlights' of Mueller's report on Sunday (UPDATED)
UPDATE: At around 3 p.m., multiple outlets said Congress expects to receive a summary of the Mueller report within then hour.
Attorney General Bill Barr will hand over the "highlights" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the conclusion of the Russia investigation on Sunday, according to Bloomberg News.
A Politico reporter confirmed the news.
The Justice Department announced on Friday that Barr had received the report and that the investigation had ended. It also said that no more indictments will be coming from the special counsel's office, though other parts of the department are known to be working on cases that have arisen from the probe.
In a letter to Congress on Friday, Barr said he would be sending over Mueller's "principal" findings to lawmakers this weekend.
The House of Representatives has voted unanimously for the full report to be released publicly. However, though he has pledged to work for transparency, Barr has repeatedly cast doubt on whether he would release the entire report.
