Attorney General Bill Barr plans to announce as early as next week the completion of Robert Mueller's investigation into the interference in the elections in Russia and a possible collusion with the Trump campaign, according to a report.
Someone familiar with the projects told CNN that the Auditor General will submit a summary of Mueller's report to Congress shortly thereafter.
Although the timing is subject to change, the preparations clearly indicate that the Special Council is ready to conclude its investigation by almost two years.
It was also difficult to know how long it would take for Justice officials to prepare what will be submitted to lawmakers – although they are aware of not interfering in President Trump's second summit. with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next Wednesday in Vietnam, according to the report.
The Department of Justice and the Special Council Office declined to comment on CNN.
Barr, who was confirmed by the Senate as Trump's new AG last week, said he wanted to be as "transparent" as possible with Congress and the public, "in accordance with the rules and the law" .
Mr. Mueller is required to submit a "confidential" report to the Attorney General once his investigation is completed, but the Special Advocate's Rules do not require disclosure to Congress and the public.
Barr has made it clear that the Department of Justice generally refrains from disclosing "derogatory" information about non-accused persons.
