After nearly two years, Robert Mueller has delivered the special counsel’s report on the Trump campaign and possible collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election to Attorney General William Barr.
Now, Barr will review the Mueller report, brief lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Barr will also be the person who decides if and how much of the report is released to the public.
Following Mueller turning in his report, Barr released a letter notifying Congress.
Here is Barr's letter to Congress. Couple of interesting items. No proposed action by the special counsel was so inappropriate or unwarranted that it should not have been pursued. Barr says he also may be able to shed some light on the report by this weekend. pic.twitter.com/dTQfM13pfz

As of Friday afternoon, the White House had not seen the report. White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said they look forward to reviewing everything and allowing everything to play out.
The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course. The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel’s report.
