Russia investigation

President Trump has bold plans for declassifying documents that could shine light on potential misconduct by federal officials.

During an interview Thursday evening, the president told Fox News host Sean Hannity “everything” is going to be declassified.

“Yes. Everything is going to be declassified and more, much more than what you just mentioned. It will all be declassified,” Trump said after Hannity asked if he would declassify FISA applications, Gang of Eight material, and FBI 302s, all elements of his “five buckets of information.”

Trump suggested the timing is now perfect following the completion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“I’m glad I waited because I thought that maybe they would obstruct if I did it early and I think I was right. So I’m glad I waited,” Trump said. “Now the attorney general can take a very strong look at whatever it is. But it will be declassified and more than what you just mentioned.”

Trump already ordered certain documents to be declassified last year that relate to the federal Russia investigation, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process for obtaining spy authority against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, and text messages from current and former officials who have been critics of Trump, including ex-FBI Director James Comey. He also directed the declassification of all FBI reports of interviews, known as “302s,” with DOJ official Bruce Ohr, who served as an unofficial backchannel between the FBI and British former spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Trump dossier.

Trump says Sleepy Joe reminds him of running against “Crooked Hillary” in 2016. Do you think Joe Biden has a chance?

Trump, Biden give preview of 2020 general election as they blast each other in Iowa
In what could be a preview of the 2020 general election campaign for the White House, both Joe Biden and President Trump took repeated, personal swipes at each other during dueling political events in different Iowa communities on Tuesday afternoon. Trump tore into Biden as “Sleepy Joe” and said See More the former vice president reminds him of running against “Crooked Hillary” in 2016. On the other side of the state, at about the same time, Biden said the Trump presidency “has got to end,” after labeling the president an “existential threat to America” earlier in the day.

The president hit Biden for visiting Iowa “once every two weeks,” mocking the former vice president for repeatedly mentioning his name. Meanwhile, Biden employed a similar line of attack. “One of my staff showed me that apparently he had my speech on — on Air Force One,” Biden said at Iowa Wesleyan University in Mount Pleasant. “I guess he’s really fascinated with me. I find it fascinating.”

Sanders to make his case for Democratic socialism
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is expected to make a speech on Wednesday touting his idea of Democratic socialism, a systempromising Medicare-for-all, free public college and a $15-per-hour minimum wage, all of which have caused Republicans to dismiss him as too far to the left. Sanders is expected to defend these ideals as the “unfinished business” necessary to restore America to Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal era if he’s elected president in 2020. His campaign platform will largely hinge on the promise to address the growing wealth inequality and guarantee economic rights that he feels all American’s are entitled to.

Jon Stewart shames lawmakers on behalf of 9/11 first responders
Jon Stewart slammed lawmakers who missed a hearing Tuesday on 9/11 victims’ compensation fund and called on them to back up their words with actions and help American heroes who are still suffering today. The sparse attendance by lawmakers was “an embarrassment to the country and a stain on the institution” of Congress, Stewart said during the hearing, adding the “disrespect” shown to first responders now suffering from respiratory ailments and other illnesses, “is utterly unacceptable.” Lawmakers from both parties said they support the bill and were monitoring the hearing amid other congressional business.

Still, the empty seats were unacceptable to Stewart. “That drove me nuts,” the comedian said in an interview on “Shepard Smith Reporting.” “They kept saying it’s a ‘sub-subcommittee.’ There’s still people on the sub-subcommittee that aren’t here. Either 9/11 was a priority or it wasn’t. But, your deeds have to at some point match your tweets and your words. Today it didn’t.”

Donald Trump Jr. to testify on Russia again
Donald Trump Jr. will testify Wednesday behind closed doorsbefore the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee, as part of what the president has called an “unfair” effort to subject his son to yet another interview on Russia-related matters. The interview will likely be relatively brief. Trump Jr. has already provided more than twodozen hours of testimony before Congress. The latest meeting comes after the committee’s Republican chairman, North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, subpoenaed him as part of the panel’s Russia investigation.

Donald Jr’s latest testimony comes as House Democrats on Tuesday passed a civil enforcement resolution that Democrats say effectively holds Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress. On Monday, a key Democrat-led committee postponed its own contempt vote and said the Justice Department was cooperating with its investigation.

US Women’s World Cup team a bunch of sore winners?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Brushing back calls for impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday “it’s not even close” to having enough support in the House, while Democrats pushed forward on other fronts to investigate President Donald Trump.

The House voted 229-191 to approve a resolution that will allow Democrats to accelerate their legal battles with the Trump administration over access to information from the Russia investigation.

At the same time, they’re convening hearings this week on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in an effort to boost public interest in the findings of the Trump-Russia probe while digging into a legal strategy aimed at forcing Attorney General William Barr, former White House counsel Don McGahn and others into compliance with congressional oversight.

“We need answers to the questions left unanswered by the Mueller report,” Pelosi said on the House floor ahead of voting.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy countered that the Democratic maneuvers are all “just a desperate attempt to relitigate the Mueller investigation.” He called it “an impeachment effort in everything but name.”

Earlier in the day, Pelosi all but ignored questions about impeachment during a policy conference, saying the Democrats’ strategy is “legislating, investigating, litigating” — in that order.

Pressed about Trump, she said: “I’m done with him. I don’t even want to talk about him.”

The House’s far-reaching resolution approved Tuesday empowers committee chairs to sue top Trump administration officials to force compliance with congressional subpoenas, including those for Mueller’s full report and his underlying evidence. They now no longer need a vote of the full House.

The Judiciary Committee chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, urged his colleagues to support the legislation “so we can get into court and break the stonewall without delay.”

After the vote, Nadler said he would go to court “as quickly as possible” against McGahn, who at the behest of the White House has defied subpoenas for documents and his testimony.

The chairman also said he is prepared to go to court to enforce subpoenas against former White House communications director Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson, a former McGahn aide, if they don’t show up for scheduled interviews this month.

And Nadler added new names to the list, saying he is also interested in hearing from Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt, who served as former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ chief of staff, and former White House aide Rick Dearborn. Both are mentioned frequently in the Mueller report.

“Either work with us and comply with subpoenas or we’ll see you in court,” said Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass., the chairman of the Rules Committee.

House leaders have signaled they will hold off on suing Barr, for now, after the committee struck a deal with the Justice Department to receive some underlying materials from Mueller’s report. Nadler has called these some of Mueller’s “most important files” and said all members of the committee will be able to view them. They include redacted portions of the report pertaining to obstruction of justice. Some staff have already started viewing the files.

However, Nadler said the committee will likely sue for access to the report’s secret grand jury information.

The chairmen of several oversight committees said after the vote that Tuesday’s action extends beyond the Russia investigation into other aspects of Trump’s administration, including their subpoena for the president’s tax returns.

“This is not just about Russia, this is a broad, coordinated campaign to stall more investigations across the board,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the chairman of the Oversight Committee. “We are here in a fight for the soul of our democracy and we will use every single tool that is available to us to hold this administration accountable.”

It’s not clear if that will be enough, though, for the dozens of House Democrats who say it’s beyond time to start impeachment proceedings.

Pelosi has resisted those efforts so far, preferring to build the case in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.

The No. 2 Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, downplayed the tensions, saying Tuesday he doesn’t get the impression the caucus is “embroiled by this issue and divided by this issue. We have differences of opinion, but I don’t think that we are divided.”

The ramped-up actions this week are intended to mollify some of the impatient members, while also seeking to deepen the public’s understanding of Mueller’s findings.

Mueller wrote in his 448-page report released last month that there was not enough evidence to establish that there was a criminal conspiracy between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, but he also said he could not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice. The report examined several episodes in which Trump attempted to influence or curtail Mueller’s investigation.

On Monday, the Judiciary panel heard testimony from John Dean, a White House counsel under Richard Nixon who helped bring down his presidency. Dean testified that Mueller has provided Congress with a “road map” for investigating Trump.

The focus on Mueller will continue Wednesday, when the House Intelligence Committee is scheduled to review the counterintelligence implications of Russia’s election interference, as detailed in Mueller’s report. The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Also Wednesday, the Oversight Committee will consider new contempt citations against Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross over the administration’s pursuit of citizenship questions on the U.S. Census.

Republicans have criticized the hearings as a waste of time and have called for Democrats to move on.

Trump Said Dems do not get “do-overs” in the Russia investigation. Sadly They Are Full Steam.. Are You Tired Of The Left Wasting Our money?

Watergate figure in the spotlight as Dems begin hearings on Mueller report
John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon and a key figure in the Watergate scandal, is expected to be frontand center on Capitol Hill on Monday, as House Democrats are set to begin a series of hearings this coming week seeking to keep the spotlight on See More Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Although the week could end with Attorney General William Barr and formerWhite House counsel Donald McGahn in contempt of Congress, no formal impeachment inquiry is on the table, and the way forward remains unclear. Prominent Democrats have continued to support the investigative “path” — in the words of Speaker Nancy Pelosi — that some of them publicly hope will lead to impeachment. Trump slammed the hearings on Sunday, calling Dean, who is also a CNN contributor, a “sleazebag attorney” and that Dems do not get “do-overs” in the Russia investigation.

Mexico still in Trump tariff crosshairs
Even as he again hailed his administration’s last-minute deal on Friday with Mexico as a “successful agreement” to address illegal immigration at the southern border, President Trump on Sunday bluntly suggested he might again seek to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico if its cooperation falls short in the future. The president and other key administration officials also sharply disputed a New York Times report claiming the deal “largely” had been negotiated months ago, and hinted that not all major details of the new arrangement have yet been made public.

California to give illegal immigrants full health benefits
In a stance to distance itself from President Trump’s administration, California is set to become the first state in the country to pay for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to have full health benefits. Under an agreement between Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature as part of a broader $213 billion budget, low-income adultsbetween the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal. The plan would take effect in January 2020, the Sacramento Bee reported.

‘Big Papi’ shot in the Dominican Republic
Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was ambushed by a man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at nearly point-blank range in a nightclub in his native Dominican Republic on Sunday. A local reporter who said he’d spoken with the doctor who treated Ortiz told ESPN that a bullet had hit Ortiz’s lower back and came out his stomach. Police said Ortiz was transferred to a hospital where he underwent surgery. He’s reportedly now in stable condition. A witness at the scene said a suspect who was at the scene is in custody. Other circumstances surrounding the shooting were unclear.

ICYMI: A fourth U.S. tourist death at Dominican Republic resort
A fourth U.S. tourist died after he fell critically and suddenly ill at an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic this past April, about a month before three others died in their rooms, Fox News has learned. Robert Bell Wallace, 67, of California, became ill almost immediately after he had a scotch from the room minibar at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino resort in Punta Cana, his niece, Chloe Arnold, told Fox News on Sunday. He was in the Dominican Republic to attend his stepson’s wedding.

George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, said Rudy Giuliani “destroyed his reputation” representing President Trump.

In a late-night tweet Saturday, Conway took shots at Giuliani’s legal career.

“He became an embarrassment to the legal profession. People have made lots of jokes about it, including me. But it’s actually quite sad. He destroyed his reputation for Donald J. Trump. How could that possibly have been worth it?” Conway said.

He was reacting to reporting from the Washington Examiner in which Giuliani said he plans to depart his role as Trump’s personal attorney after he finishes “cleanup” from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

The former New York City mayor, who once led the federal prosecutor’s office in Manhattan, has been a key Trump spokesman and strategist since joining his legal team in April 2018 after Trump struggled to attract other legal talent, in part due to legal conflicts on the part of the attorneys.

Conway, a conservative lawyer, has repeatedly grabbed headlines by questioning the president’s mental health and condemning his actions and comments. He has also been critical of Giuliani this year for some of the gaffes he made while appearing on TV.

Author Michael Wolff wrote in his new book Siege: Trump Under Fire that Conway began criticizing Trump on Twitter after Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, a prominent Wall Street firm where Conway is a partner, placed “enormous pressure” on him to “distance himself from Trump and his lies.”

Senior Republican operatives loyal to the White House are deeply unhappy with America First Action, believing Trump’s giant super PAC, so critical to his reelection, is failing on a number of fronts.

America First Action, permitted to raise money in unlimited amounts, is expected to play a crucial role in Trump’s 2020 reelection bid, supplementing the president’s campaign and the Republican National Committee as part of a broad defense against Democratic organizations that could spend more than $1 billion.

Nevertheless, officials concerned with the performance of the big-money group, who requested anonymity to preserve relationships with the president’s inner circle, are hopeful recently installed America First Action Chairwoman Linda McMahon can whip it into shape.

Complaints about the group run the gamut.

Some charge the group should be doing more to shield Trump from the aftershocks of the Russia investigation and the report from special counsel Robert Mueller. Others fault fundraising, saying the group is not paying close enough attention to moderately wealthy Republicans, whose donations collectively are worth millions. Then there are those who claim America First is strategically adrift.

“It’s the president’s super PAC; it should be the biggest player in American politics,” said one GOP insider in Washington. Added another: “It doesn’t feel like they’ve been on the field very effectively over the past six months.”

Enter McMahon, 70, a Trump ally and former Cabinet member.

The career executive was appointed chairwoman of America First Action in April after departing as chief of the Small Business Administration. Critics of the super PAC are optimistic McMahon can revive a group they dismiss as disorganized, ineffective, and poorly received by GOP mega-donors.

“Linda McMahon coming on board marked a reset for America First as they recalibrate to be Trump’s air support in 2020,” said Dan Eberhart, a Republican donor and energy industry executive based in Arizona.

Todd Ricketts, the Republican Party finance chairman, is another McMahon cheerleader. “Linda and I have been friends for a long time,” he said. “As President Trump steps into the 2020 ring, he is lucky to have Linda in his corner.”

McMahon is the former CEO of WWE, a professional wrestling and entertainment conglomerate. She ran for Senate in Connecticut twice, losing, but in the process cultivated the image of someone who is intelligent, likable, and hard working. Republicans familiar with her predicted she would be a hit with GOP donors and position America First Action, and nonprofit affiliate America First Policies, to raise the $300 million the groups are budgeting for 2020.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, McMahon said she spends half her time overseeing America First day-to-day, working with executive director Brian O. Walsh to chart strategy and develop operations. The other half of her time is devoted to fundraising. On the job about seven weeks, McMahon is not taking a salary and said she has no plans to do so.

“I think we’re right on pace,” she insisted, when asked to assess America First and its unfolding strategy to help reelect Trump. As for Republican critics, anonymous and otherwise, McMahon urged them to “pick up the phone” and communicate their concerns and suggestions directly, especially “if they’re donors.”

Walsh was more pointed. “I’m deeply worried about whether these anonymous critics are up to the task as well because they are obviously spending more time talking to the press than helping the president,” he said. “I guess we’ll never know, so I’ll just go back to winning, like we did in 2018.”

America First Action and America First Policies raised more than $74 million in the 2018 cycle, spending most of that promoting Trump’s agenda and supporting Republicans in midterm election contests. There are federal limits on what nonprofit groups can spend on politics, so the super PAC finances most of those activities.

This year, the groups have run advertising touting the president’s proposal to build a wall along the Mexican border and defended two of his key Republican allies in the House of Representatives, Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Mark Meadows of North Carolina, from attacks by wealthy liberal activist Tom Steyer.

America First runs lean, with eight full-time employees, including Walsh, plus an additional operative on contract. McMahon said plans are in place to grow the payroll to accommodate America First’s 2020 strategy.

The blueprint calls for investing in polling, voter registration, and traditional and digital advertising. America First also is spending on digging up dirt on Democratic presidential candidates through donations to America Rising, the premier GOP opposition research group, and on developing its database through contributions to Data Trust, the keeper of the party’s voter file.

“They’ve got a great plan on where they’re going and I think they’re attacking it the right way,” veteran Republican strategist Guy Harrison said.

How Do You Negotiate With Terror? North Korea executes five officials over failed Kim-Trump summit! How Will Trump Respond? How Would You?

Trump using tariffs as new weapon to combat border crisis; Buttigieg’s story questioned by brother-in-law

Tariffs: Trump’s new weapon to combat the migration crisis

President Trump on Thursday announced a new 5 percent tariff on Mexico beginning in early June, saying the levy will “graduallyincrease” until the ongoing illegal See More immigration surge at the southern border is “remedied” and illegal migrants “STOP.” Fox News is told the tariff on all goods by land, sea, and air from Mexico will hike to 10 percent on July 1 — and potentially increase substantially from there.

“Thousands of innocent lives are taken every year as a result of this lawless chaos. It must end NOW!” Trump said in a White House statement. Specifically, White House sources told Fox News that Mexico would need to step up security efforts on the border,target transnational smugglers, crack down on illicit bus lines and align with the U.S. on a workable asylum policy.

South Korean media: North Korea executes five officials over failed Kim-Trump summit
North Korea has executed five officials for their role in the failed second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last February, according to a South Korean newspaper. Citing the newspaper, Bloomberg News reported that Kim Hyok Chol, North Korea’s special envoy to the U.S., and four other North Korean Foreign Ministry officials were executed in March because of the breakdown of the February summit in Hanoi, Vietnam. Trump’s closely watched summit with Kim ended abruptly, without the two leaders signing any agreements over nuclear disarmament. Top Kim aide Kim Yong Chol is reportedly sentenced to hard labor for his part in the summit.

Mueller may still sit on the hot seat
One thing Special Counsel Robert Mueller made clear Wednesday in his only public remarks on his findings in the Russia investigation was that he had no desire to testify before Congress. The hundreds of pages in his report, Mueller believed, are his best testimony. However, Mueller may not have a choice. Not satisfied with Mueller’s comments, some leading Democrats are anxious to have the now-former special counsel testify under oath.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has already said in a statement that Mueller’ public remarks left many questions unanswered. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., also said that Mueller’s report was not enough, telling the New York Times that “there is a difference between reading the book and seeing the movie on the big screen.”

Exclusive: Mayor Pete’s brother-in-law says his ‘rags-to-riches’ story is made up
Pastor Rhyan Glezman, brother-in-law of Pete Buttigieg, said Thursday evening that the “rags to riches” narrative in a newspaper profile about the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and his husband is a lie. The “story couldn’t be further from the truth,” Glezman explained on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.” The Washington Post article claimed that Chasten Buttigieg — the candidate’s spouse — had been “shunned” by his family and even struggled with homelessness. Glezman said the family has no memory of Chasten’s supposed homelessness and shunning. “There has never been any amount of shunning him from the family. I love my brother dearly. I want the best for him. I want the best for Pete,” Glezman said. He said he thinks Buttigieg made up the story because it helps to have a compelling narrative to stand out in a crowded field of candidates.

When officials briefed then-candidate Donald Trump in August 2016 about threats Russia posed to his campaign, they did not inform him about a counterintelligence investigation into members of his team.

During an interview on Thursday, Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, highlighted how he thought it was ridiculous that FBI agent Peter Strzok coordinated the intelligence briefing for Trump’s campaign when he was the one who opened the counterintelligence investigation less than three weeks prior.

“There was a defensive briefing of candidate Trump on Aug. 17 of 2016,” Ratcliffe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said on Fox News. “And I can tell you what he wasn’t told: He wasn’t warned about a Russia investigation that Peter Strzok had opened 18 days earlier.”

Ratcliffe declined to discuss classified information, but he had been asked to comment on reporting that found the FBI did not warn Trump campaign officials about Russian efforts to reach out to Trump’s team specifically and that two of his aides, Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos, were under FBI scrutiny.

Strzok was the lead investigator of the Hillary Clinton emails inquiry and opened the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016.

Text messages between Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, in which they displayed a negative opinion of Trump, were uncovered over the course of the Justice Department’s inspector general investigation into the DOJ and FBI’s conduct during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server. Upon the discovery of these texts, Strzok was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and was later fired from the bureau.

“Why would Peter Strzok, who would participate at [former FBI Director] Jim Comey’s direction in a defensive briefing designed to protect and warn a candidate, be the same person who is in fact at that time already investigating the candidate’s campaign? That shouldn’t happen. There should be answers to those questions,” Ratcliffe said.

Gregory Brower, assistant director of the FBI’s Office of Congressional Affairs, wrote Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in October 2017 to confirm “an experienced FBI counterintelligence agent” advised both the Trump campaign and that of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in August 2016 about Russia.

But Trump complained that the FBI did not adequately inform him of the Russian threat to his campaign last year. “With Spies, or ‘Informants’ as the Democrats like to call them because it sounds less sinister (but it’s not), all over my campaign, even from a very early date, why didn’t the crooked highest levels of the FBI or ‘Justice’ contact me to tell me of the phony Russia problem?” he tweeted.

CNN law enforcement analyst Josh Campbell said at the time that it would make sense if the FBI did not share specific details with Trump’s team.

“They likely would not be so specific as to outline the things they are seeing, because they don’t want to blow their investigation,” Campbell said. “But it is incumbent upon the intelligence community to provide both candidates with a baseline level of what the threat is and how to protect against those threats.”

Mueller concluded his 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election in March, and a redacted report released in April showed he was unable to find sufficient evidence of criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday will make his first public comments on his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the Justice Department said.

Mueller will not take questions after his statement, scheduled for 11 a.m. (1500 GMT) at the Justice Department.

Officials in the White House and Congress said they had been

notified that Mueller might make a statement but did not know what he was going to say.

A redacted version of the 448-page Mueller report was published in April, concluding the campaign of President Donald Trump did not engage in a criminal conspiracy with Moscow to win the White House. Mueller declined to make a judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice, although the report outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to impede the investigation.

Trump has said the two-year investigation exonerated him after repeatedly denouncing it as a witch hunt. The investigation ensnared dozens of people, including several top Trump advisers and a series of Russian nationals and companies.

Among them are his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who is serving 7 1/2 years in prison for financial crimes and lobbying violations, and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who recently began a three-year sentence for campaign-finance violations and lying to Congress.

Since the report’s release, Democratic lawmakers have tried without success to get the full report and underlying evidence. The House Judiciary Committee also is negotiating for Mueller to testify at a hearing.

Trump has said Mueller should not testify before Congress but that the final decision was up to Attorney General William Barr. Democrats have denounced Barr, saying he misrepresented the special counsel’s findings.

Mueller appeared to have misgivings at one point as well, complaining to Barr in March that he had initially disclosed his main findings in an incomplete way that caused public confusion. In congressional testimony in April, Barr dismissed Mueller’s concerns as “a bit snitty.”

Barr now is leading a review of the origins of the Russia investigation in what is the third known inquiry into the FBI’s handling of the matter. Trump harbors suspicions that the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama started the investigation in 2016 to undermine his presidency.

Special counsel Robert Mueller will break his silence Wednesday about his 22-month investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian interference in the election.

The former FBI director will speak at 11 a.m. ET at the Department of Justice. The event will be streamed live, according to a press release. Mueller will not take questions.

Mueller’s remarks come less than a week after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said that Mueller wanted to testify privately to Congress about the probe. Some Democrats pushed for Mueller to testify publicly. President Donald Trump has said that Mueller should not testify. 

The White House was advised Tuesday that Mueller “may make a statement,” a senior administration official said.

Mueller and his team of prosecutors have been tight-lipped about their inquiry, releasing new information rarely and generally in the form of unsealed indictments. The DOJ released a partially redacted version of Mueller’s 448-page report last month.
