At the close of business Friday afternoon on the East Coast, Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report to Attorney General William Barr. Yes, THE Mueller report, after 22-months, and a whole lot of political drama, is done. Early reports indicate there will be no new charges being filed by Mueller's team.

The Mueller report is the final culmination of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the Trump presidential campaign and Russian collusion and/or interference. There's been a long list of indictments and plea deals already, but whether there will be any new prosecutions as a result is still not entirely certain, despite the early indications.

Where Are the Details?

Unfortunately for the media and detail-hungry public, the details of the Mueller report may never be made public. However, that is likely to be the subject of much debate and potentially litigation in the coming months, and maybe even years. What we know is coming soon is an outline of the report from AG Barr to lawmakers but the actual details of Mueller's investigation and report, may never see the light of day.

Barr's Working on It

As reported by Reuters, AG Barr sent a letter to the lawmakers explaining that he was working on reviewing the report, then would consult with Mueller and his deputy AG, before releasing information to Congress, potentially even this weekend. And while the White House and President Trump are surely eager to get their hands on the report as well, they may also be limited to only Barr's report of Mueller's report. As of yet, it's been reported that the White House has not received any additional information.

Previously, Barr explained that the Mueller report would likely be turned into two separate reports, one for Congress and one for the public. Notably, there is very strong bipartisan support for the entire report to be released, minimally to Congress.
