House Democrats are huddling Saturday to strategize how to force special counsel Robert Mueller’s potentially explosive findings into the open — a possible drag-out legal fight that could consume Washington for months.
As of Saturday morning, lawmakers of both parties were clueless about the contents of Mueller’s report on links between the Trump campaign and Russia. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats will convene a conference call at 3 p.m. to discuss their latest thinking on the report’s arrival.
Barr has indicated he could brief top lawmakers as soon as Saturday on Mueller’s main findings, but no details have emerged about the timing of that update. Reporters at the Justice Department indicated that Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — who oversaw Mueller’s probe — arrived at DOJ headquarters on Saturday morning.
