The almost two-year probe has shadowed Trump's presidency and resulted in felony charges against 34 people including six people who served on Trump's campaign.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with associates of President Donald Trump.

Barr said he could release his account to Congress as soon as this weekend.

In appointing Danforth, Attorney General Janet Reno specifically directed him to draft a report for public release on his findings, which he did.

Trump has continually criticized Mueller in public, on Thursday evening his campaign sent a fundraising email to supporters, once again branding the Mueller investigation a "Witch Hunt" that had "been orchestrated by loser Democrats and their friends in the Fake News Media".

Tur made the comment during a panel on her show with Washington Post White House reporter Ashley Parker and senior Politico White House reporter Darren Samuelsohn.

Multiple news outlets reported at 5 p.m. ET that the report had been delivered.

While Mueller's investigation is finished, the investigations into Trump, his business and his administration are far from over. Also, did Trump take steps later, including by firing his Federal Bureau of Investigation director, to obstruct the probe? "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report", Sanders said in a statement. Thus, President Trump will not be indicted based on the Mueller report.

Barr wrote in his letter that Justice Department leaders never told the special counsel throughout the investigation a proposed action should not be pursued. Federal prosecutors, also in NY, have been investigating foreign contributions made to the president's inaugural committee.

Mueller sought to determine whether the campaign coordinated with Moscow, though it was not immediately clear whether the special counsel found evidence of a conspiracy. Last spring, for example, the special counsel's office shared information related to Cohen with the US attorney's office for the Southern District of NY.

However, I get the impression that Barr is going to play Mueller's report "by the book", disclosing only as much as Justice Department rules and protocol call for.

The probe is widely expected to end in the coming weeks, but Trump was focused on its beginnings rather than its conclusion, complaining about Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein's appointment of Mueller in May 2017. "It's all a big hoax". Manafort in the two cases prosecuted by Mueller's team was sentenced to 7-1/2 years in prison.
