Attorney general may announce completion of Mueller investigation next week

Attorney General Bill Barr could announce as soon as early next week that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a new report.

Barr plans to submit to Congress a summary of Mueller’s confidential report on the two-year investigation, CNN reported Wednesday.

Mueller is required to submit a confidential report to the attorney general after he wraps up his investigation. In the report, Mueller must explain why he decided to bring charges against or not prosecute any matters under investigation.
