Robert Mueller submits Russia report to Attorney General William Barr

(CBS) Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation has concluded, and he has now submitted his long-awaited report on the findings of that probe to Attorney General William Barr, as required by the special counsel law.

A senior Justice Department official has told CBS News that Mueller is not recommending any further indictments. The Justice Department also confirmed that the “principal conclusions” of the report will be made public.

Barr will now summarize Mueller’s report for lawmakers, also in accordance with the law. It is not clear whether the report or any part of it will be made public — that’s left to Barr’s discretion. In a letter to top lawmakers on the judiciary committees, Barr said he anticipated that he might be able to advise them of Mueller’s principal conclusions “as soon as this weekend.”

Special counsel spokesperson Peter Carr said in a statement that Mueller will be concluding his service in the coming days. A small number of staff will remain to assist in closing the operations of the office for a period of time.
