Donald Trump says he has not read 'total waste of time' Mueller report

Attorney General William Barr is returning to Capitol Hill for a second time this week as lawmakers, the White House and the American public anxiously await his release of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report. Still, his remarks give a boost to Trump and his supporters who insist his 2016 campaign was unfairly targeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

But Barr sparred with House Democrats who pressed him on why he would not release grand jury material or provide the full, unredacted Mueller report to Congress.

The move indicates Barr is following Republicans' lead on the matter. Lowey said. "Has the White House seen it since then?"

Attorney General William Barr is facing Congress on Wednesday. Barr's statement mentions $16 million for a vetting program for those who wish to enter or remain in the United States, something he says will help the government "identify terrorists, criminals and other nefarious actors".

But It’s Wrong: Trump Tweets Graphic of His ‘Soaring’ Approval Rating
However, the graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct . Viewers were quick to respond on Twitter , including the Director of Georgetown Politics, to point out the error.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of NY tweeted that Barr's comments "directly contradict" what the Justice Department previously has said, and intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California said Barr's testimony surely pleases Trump but "also strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions". Republicans have asked for this investigation now that Mueller has completed his investigation.

"If this is a 400-page send us a four-page summary that just talks about the high-level conclusions is potentially misleading", Coons said. A separate investigation is being conducted by the Justice Department inspector general into the early days of the FBI's Russian Federation probe, which Barr said he expects to conclude sometime around May or June.

Asked again about spying at the end of the hearing, Barr tempered his tone.

Barr was also questioned about the initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil members of the Trump campaign, including former Trump aide Carter Page. Every single thing about it.

Facebook tweaks tools for remembering deceased loved ones
Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said: "People turn to Facebook to find community during life's highs and lows". That's why it's so important that those closest to the deceased person can decide when to take that step.

He falsely claimed that the Mueller report had found "no obstruction".

Barr has faced scrutiny from Democratic lawmakers for his four-page summary of Mueller's report, which took 22 months to complete, and is reportedly almost 400 pages long.

Barr said he did not believe the evidence in the report was sufficient to prove the president had obstructed justice.

There have been concerns within the Justice Department that it is too easy to open an investigation. "I don't know if people should get their hopes up for the full Mueller report, because based on Barr's letter, there's probably not going to be a chapter in there called 'Impeachable Stuff.'" Still, Roy Wood Jr. had a solution for people still holding out hope for really damning news.
