Congress won't get Mueller report until after Barr press conference

The Department of Justice (DOJ) won't deliver the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report to Congress until after a press conference from Attorney General William Barr, a Democratic aide told The Hill.

The aide said lawmakers on Capitol Hill would receive the report at 11 a.m. on Thursday, more than an hour after Barr is expected to begin his press conference.

Earlier on Wednesday, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) tweeted that Congress had been informed they would be receiving the report well after Barr spoke to reporters.

"I’m deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release," Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted. "Now, DOJ is informing us we will not receive the report until around 11/12 tomorrow afternoon — AFTER Barr’s press conference. This is wrong."
