Congressional staff are preparing for marathon reading sessions over Easter as Washington awaits the release of Robert Mueller's report into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Barr's summary letter on March 24, two days after Mueller delivered his report to the new attorney general, was met with glee from the White House, as he wrote that the lengthy investigation did not find that the Trump campaign "conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 USA presidential election".

Last month, Barr released a summary of Mueller's findings, almost 48 hours after the special counsel's investigation was completed. Mr. Barr also said he believed the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign - but clarified the question is whether it was merited or not.

The president's latest comments come days after he called the probe an attempted "coup", while Barr promised to investigate FBI "spying" on Trump.

Release appears imminent of a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's almost 400-page report on Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, but sparring over Mueller's conclusions is already rampant.

Nadler said it "may be that Mueller decided not to prosecute obstruction of justice for various reasons that there wasn't proof beyond a reasonable doubt on some things". But given what little Democrats have seen of Mueller's findings, they want more answers on exactly how the Justice Department came to that conclusion.

On Thursday, Rosenstein defended Barr's handling of the Mueller report from critics who have charged him with bias.

In order to distract from unanswered questions about Mueller's report, Trump reportedly revived a proposal which was previously been rejected by his own administration to release immigrant detainees in so-called sanctuary cities, sources close to the president told the Times.
