(Reuters) - US Attorney General Bill Barr announced on Friday the date of full disclosure of Special Prosecutor Robert Muller's two-year report on Russia's intervention in the 2016 US presidential election.
"I think we will be able to publish the report by mid-April, if not sooner," Barr said in a letter to Congress.
On Sunday, Barr published a four-page summary of the report, saying there was no evidence of any coordination between Trump and Moscow to influence the results of the US presidential election.
But Mueller's report said he was "not acquitting" the president of the charge of "obstructing justice" in the case.
The voices in the American political community are calling for the full publication of the Muller investigation. The Democratic leader of the US Congress said that the Justice Minister who published the report was not a "neutral observer".
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement that "the letter from Justice Minister Bar asks questions as much as answers."
"It is urgent that the report be published in full and all documents related to it."
For his part, Trump considered that the investigation of links between his campaign and Russia is a "treason," pointing out that the results confirm his innocence completely.
Müller's investigation focused on whether Trump had conspired with Moscow to influence the election, and whether the Republican president sought to block the investigation.
The policy of the Ministry of Justice indicates that criminal charges can not be brought against any head of power.
Mueller accused 34 people and three companies during the investigation, and some former Trump assistants have been sentenced to prison.
Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, who was already convicted, was put on the president's behalf when he pleaded guilty to financial charges in a separate case filed by federal prosecutors in New York.
