White House: Next Steps in Mueller Report Up to AG Barr

By    |   Friday, 22 March 2019 05:55 PM

The White House has made its first comment regarding special counsel Robert Mueller's final report, saying it has not been briefed on the contents.

"The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Twitter. "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report."

Mueller delivered his final report on the Russia probe to Barr late Friday afternoon. According to reports, the White House was informed of the news around 4:45 p.m. ET.

It's not yet clear what the report says, but Barr wrote to Congressional leaders that he might be able to brief them on the findings as soon as this weekend.

The probe began in May 2017 over claims that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election.
