Attorney General Barr sent a letter to the leader of the House and Senate Judiciary committees. Congress and the Democratic House will review the findings before deciding the next step.

After that, Barr will consult with the Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein to "determine what other information from the report can be released to Congress and public consistent with law."

While the contents have not yet been reviewed, an official who perused the report described it as "comprehensive."

The White House has not been briefed about the report as yet, however, two of the president's lawyers, Rudolph Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, issued a statement:

“We’re pleased that the Office of Special Counsel has delivered its report to the Attorney General pursuant to the regulations. Attorney General Barr will determine the appropriate next steps.”

Special Counsel Mueller investigated criminal charges against more than thirty people, including former aides and advisors to Trump.

Mueller began the inquiry in May 2017, days after President Trump fired FBI Director James B. Comey.
