Friday shortly after 5 p.m. eastern the Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report to the Department of Justice’s Attorney General William Barr, the Washington Post reported.
According to the Post, “The Justice Department notified Congress late Friday that it had received Mueller’s report but did not describe its contents. Barr is expected to summarize the findings for lawmakers in coming days.”
At this time we have zero idea what is contained inside that report, most of the reporting currently is still speculation, beyond the fact that Mueller has handed in his report.
This is just the first step in a longer process. Here’s what we expect to happen next. (Note that this guide to the end of the Mueller investigation was published before today’s news came out.) https://t.co/SCpr3Ovb0I— POLITICO (@politico) March 22, 2019
