Top House Democrats plan to press Attorney General William Barr on his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian collusion during a hearing Tuesday before the House Appropriations Committee, according to CBS News.

Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., plans to tell Barr the way he handled the report was "unacceptable" and his letter about the report "raises more questions than it answers."

Mueller completed his 22-month investigation probe into whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia on March 22. Two days later, Barr sent a four-page letter to Congress summarizing Mueller's findings.

"I must say, it is extraordinary to evaluate hundreds of pages of evidence, legal documents, and findings based on a 22-month long inquiry and make definitive legal conclusions in less than 48 hours," Lowey, the chairman of the committee, will say. "Even for someone who has done this job before, I would argue it is more suspicious than impressive."

Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., will ask Barr about reports some members of Mueller's team say the report was more damaging than Barr revealed.

"The American people have been left with many unanswered questions; serious concerns about the process by which you formulated your letter; and uncertainty about when we can expect to see the full report," he will say.
