Justice Department preparing to receive Mueller report

Special Counsel Robert Mueller began his investigation in May 2017

The U.S. Justice Department is preparing to announce that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 21-month-long probe into alleged links between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian Federation is complete.

During his Senate confirmation hearing to join the Transportation Department in 2017, Rosen said government agencies should "implement the law" as Congress has written it.

In response to a question about how long Rosenstein will remain the deputy attorney general, White House Strategic Communications Director Mercedes Schlapp told Fox News on February 19 that the decision is up to Rosenstein and that President Donald Trump has a good relationship with Rosenstein.

According to media accounts, the Mueller report will be very different.

A justice department official quoted by Reuters said Mr Rosenstein's decision was not linked to renewed claims that he had once suggested secretly recording Mr Trump.

Sources familiar with the situation told CNN that Barr plans to submit a summary of the investigation to Congress next week.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to expected to leave DOJ in March

Barr continued in his hearing that "the attorney general as I understand the rules, would report to Congress about the conclusion of the investigation".

- Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role at the Justice Department by mid-March, a senior DOJ official told Fox News on Monday. Barr, who also led the Justice Department under President George H.W. Bush, was of counsel at the firm. The firing kicked off an intense nine-day period that culminated in the appointment of the special counsel.

Trump also ramped up his attacks on former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe, whose new book details the commander in chief's effort to control the Russian Federation probe.

For another thing, if it is indeed the final report, Barr would then have to write his own report and deliver it to Congress, "and it's contemplated in the regulations that that report should be public, if the public administration of justice so requires".

President Trump reacted furiously to the interview, tweeting of "illegal and treasonous" behaviour and an "illegal coup attempt". Some congressional Republicans who back the president have repeatedly attacked Mueller's work as corrupted by anti-Trump bias among Comey and his senior advisers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
