'All' of Mueller report must be public: Gillibrand

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, in her first speech as an official presidential candidate in New York City on Sunday, demanded that "all" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election be made public.

U.S. lawmakers drew battle lines on Sunday over how to handle a special counsel long-awaited report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election that has cast a pall over Donald Trump's presidency and raised questions about collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

Members of Congress, the media and Trump himself were waiting for Attorney General William Barr to release a summary of the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller after his 22-month investigation of Russian connections.

Trump, who decried the probe as a witch hunt and waste of time, was at his resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where he went to his golf club on Saturday and Sunday but remained uncharacteristically silent about Friday's conclusion of the Mueller probe.

Barr said he hoped to make public a summary of its "principal conclusions" over the weekend.

The White House has not received or been briefed on the report, spokesman Hogan Gidley said on Sunday morning.

Whatever the report concludes, Democrats vowed to pursue investigations on a wide range of issues involving Trump, from his business dealings to hush-money payments.

They called for the full release of the report, as well as documents backing up its findings, and have promised to subpoena any information they do not get.

Many Republicans also want the report released and say it will vindicate Trump.

Some cautioned portions of it might need to remain confidential.
