People close to him said he raised the policy proposal - to send detained immigrants to sanctuary cities as a way to target his political rivals - in part to shift focus off of the report's release.

Attorney General William Barr is expected to release to Congress a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's election meddling this week.

"Does Mueller use any language suggesting that a reasonable prosecutor acting in her discretion could have charged President Trump with obstruction but for DOJ policy against indicting a sitting President?" he said.

Two days later, Barr released a four-page summary of the "key findings".

No one other than Barr and key officials in the Justice Department, Mueller and his team of prosecutors appear to know what the report says about the extent of Trump campaign links with Russian Federation during his 2016 campaign or whether he took any actions as the US leader aimed at inhibiting the investigation.

"Nunes" move is an escalation by Trump's allies in Congress to pivot from Mueller's still-unreleased findings to the conduct of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department investigators who initiated the Russian Federation probe", Politico reports. "And that's for Congress to judge whether the president obstructed justice or not, and the public ultimately". But given what little Democrats have seen of Mueller's findings, they want more answers on exactly how the Justice Department came to that conclusion.

Opposition Democrats like Nadler have launched new investigations of Trump, a Republican, but the president is objecting. "These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others!"

Rosenstein on Friday defended Barr's handling of the process, saying the attorney general was "being as forthcoming as he can".

But how much of the report is made public is an open question.
