Attorney General Bill Barr plans to announce as early as next week the completion of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, according to a report.
People familiar with the plans told CNN that the AG will submit a summary of Mueller’s report to Congress soon after.
Although the precise timing is subject to change, the preparations are the clearest indication so far that the special counsel is ready to wrap up his almost two-year probe.
It also was unclear how long it will take Justice officials to prepare what will be submitted to lawmakers – though they are mindful of not interfering with President Trump’s second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next Wednesday in Vietnam, according to the report.
The Justice Department and the special counsel’s office declined to comment to CNN.
