"Our goal is to respond as quick as we can; given the length of the report, it may take some time to respond", Sekulow said.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's highly anticipated report is expected to be issued this week in redacted form by Attorney General William Barr, and election law expert laid out some of the key findings to focus on.
Barr, a Trump appointee, submitted a four-page summary of the almost 400-page report to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees last month, in which he stated that Mueller had found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation but had left open the question of whether the president obstructed justice during the probe.
Mueller's 400-page report most likely lays out the factual findings and legal analysis of the investigation, which resulted in numerous convictions.
Last month, Barr released a letter saying Mueller had not established evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, but also saying Mueller had provided evidence of alleged obstruction of justice by Donald Trump while declining to recommend prosecution.Читайте также: WATCH Fire Breaks Out During First Night of Coachella Festival
Nadler said that even though Barr concluded no obstruction charges should be brought against Trump, his decision should not go without review. Rather, Mueller's team wrote, according to Barr, that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".
"We should see and judge for ourselves and that is for Congress to judge if the president obstructed justice or not", the New York Democrat told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.
On Thursday, Rosenstein defended Barr's handling of the Mueller report from critics who have charged him with bias. He was referring to Hillary Clinton, his 2016 opponent, and the Democratic National Committee, which supported her candidacy.
But how much of the report is made public is an open question.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
