"Pelosi told House Dems in private meeting that Bill Barr's words can not be taken at face value, arguing he got job by authoring a memo criticizing Mueller obstruction probe", CNN's Senior Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju reports.

"That person has a lot to answer to to the voters of South Carolina", Scarborough said.

In a letter to congressional leaders, Barr said Mueller concluded that Russian Federation unquestionably meddled in the 2016 US presidential election, but that Trump and his campaign did not conspire with Moscow to help him win the White House. They want a full copy of Mueller's report so they can tear it apart and say Barr came to a different conclusion because he covered up for Trump. Trump himself publicly urged Russia to hack Hilary Clinton's emails on the same day Russian hackers tried to breach her emails for the first time.

These additional questions call for the full Mueller report to be released.

Mueller submitted his final report Friday to Attorney General William Barr. Schiff postponed an open hearing with Felix Sater, a Russian-born former business adviser to Trump who helped him negotiate an ultimately unsuccessful deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow, while the intelligence committee tries to get a look at Mueller's report.

The failure to absolve Trump was foreseen, given the many examples of his public conduct that indicate a systematic and unprecedented effort to obstruct justice. According to Barr's letter, the special counsel saw "difficult issues of law and fact", without specifying what they were. On that basis, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided that charges against Trump were not warranted. It concludes that the evidence, although unspecified, does not prove obstruction beyond a reasonable doubt.

Serena's victory on Friday was her first at Hard Rock Stadium, the Miami Dolphins' home and the Miami Open's new centre court. Serena was next scheduled to play No. 18-seeded Qiang Wang , who advanced to the fourth round.

The only way the American people can have confidence is for the Mueller report to be released in its entirety.

"Moving forward, we ask that you employ basic journalistic standards when booking such guests to appear anywhere in your universe of productions", the memo reads.

The chairman of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat, said on CNN on Sunday that he would "try to negotiate" with the Justice Department to obtain the full report, but the committee would issue subpoenas and litigate if needed. I don't even think we know how long the report is, and also no idea as to how detailed it may, or may not, be.

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski lambasted Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday over his response to President Donald Trump's attacks on his late friend, John McCain.

Meanwhile, a fight continues to brew between Democrats and Republicans over the public release of the report.

In light of the cursory letter from the attorney general, and our need to understand special counsel Mueller's areas of inquiry and evidence his office uncovered, we are working in parallel with other committees to bring in senior officials from the DOJ, FBI and SCO to ensure that our committee is fully and now informed about the SCO's investigation, including all counterintelligence information.
