White House press secretary declares “full confidence” in AG Barr’s summary

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday she has "full confidence" in Attorney General Robert Barr's summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on his Russia investigation.

The House Judiciary Committee approved subpoenas Wednesday for special counsel Robert Mueller's full Russia report as Democrats pressure the Justice Department to release the document without redactions.
House Democrats had given Attorney General William Barr until Tuesday to produce the full report to Congress. The Justice Department ignored that deadline, with Barr telling the committee chairmen in a letter last week that a redacted version of the almost 400-page report would be released by mid-April, "if not sooner."
Republicans have fired back that issuing subpoenas for a report that has been promised is premature.

The Democratic chairman of The House Ways and Means Committee Rep Richard Neal sent a formal request to the IRS for 6 years of President Trumps tax returns. It is the


first such demand for a sitting president's tax information in 45 years and is likely to set off a huge legal battle between Democrats controlling the House and the Trump administration.

Neal gave the IRS a deadline of April 10 to produce the documents. Under the law, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and designated staff are allowed to view the returns but not release them to the public. President Trump at a meeting with senior Military leaders spoke about the recent request.

Asked whether Trump's threat to shut down the Southern border with Mexico this week is on hold, Sanders said only that "the president is still keeping that option on the table."
