According to the report, "Nunes' accusations of misconduct are aimed at a slew of former Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials, who he alleges committed crimes in their pursuit of allegations that President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign conspired with Russians to influence the election".

The attorney general said Mueller did not find evidence of a criminal conspiracy between Trump and Moscow but did not reach a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice.

The chairman of the House judiciary committee on Sunday said a report filed by special counsel Robert Mueller could contain "proof of some very bad deeds" and warned that the entire document must be made available to Congress.

Mueller's 400-page report most likely lays out the factual findings and legal analysis of the investigation, which resulted in numerous convictions. 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.

A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation. He said the threat for severe weather is greatest at such times but that the risk remained even after warm temperatures dropped.


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

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. And we need to see them and the public needs to see them". Barr has repeatedly said he's working with Mueller's team to redact information that could compromise sources and other ongoing investigations. "The fact of the matter is we should see and judge for ourselves and Congress should judge whether the president obstructed justice or not, and the public ultimately".

Since the release of Barr's summary, Trump has claimed "total exoneration, no collusion, no obstruction". "Attorney General Barr will make the decision!"
