Attorney General William Barr Sunday released a four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report Sunday afternoon.

The Justice Department did not find evidence that Trump conspired with Russia on the 2016 presidential election and did not come to a conclusion on obstruction of justice.

The Democratic leaders of six House committees are demanding that Congress have the full report by special counsel Robert Mueller “no later” than April 2. The chairmen of the panels wrote in a letter to Attorney General William Barr Monday that his summary of Mueller’s work is “not sufficient for Congress, a coequal branch of government” to perform oversight duties.

In his opinion piece for The Atlantic, Ken Starr, who was the independent counsel during the Clinton Administration’s Whitewater case, argued that Mueller does not need to release a public report.

Starr joins Larry to discuss the report.

Guest:

Ken Starr, former independent counsel (1994-1999) for a series of high-profile investigations, including the suicide of Vince Foster, and the Whitewater and Lewinsky scandals of the Clinton Administration
