Mueller released the report on his almost two year investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election on March 22.

The president's latest comments come days after he called the probe an attempted "coup", while Barr promised to investigate FBI "spying" on Trump.

William Barr, the attorney-general, said that he would publish a redacted version of the special counsel's 400-page findings this week.

The attorney general said Mueller did not find evidence of a criminal conspiracy between Trump and Moscow but did not reach a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice.

Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, however, concluded that Mueller's finding were "not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense". The main questions that aides want to be able to answer for Trump: why Mueller couldn't conclude whether Trump obstructed justice and what he meant when he said "much" of Trump's conduct was public. But Barr responded, saying he thought he could complete any redactions by "mid-April, if not sooner", and the release anticipated for this week does hit that promised timeline.

Lat month, the Attorney General released a four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings during his investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged collusion with Russian Federation. In it, Barr said the "special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russian Federation in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election".

Speaking on Sunday, judiciary committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat, said Barr had "showed his bias" in favor of Trump and accused Barr of "really acting as a personal agent of the president".

All of that suggests the controversy is likely to be far from over even when the redacted, lengthy Mueller report is released.
