"First is grand jury information", Barr said.

Six leading Democrats, however, say they will fight the redactions.

House Appropriations Committee will hold a hearing for the budget request for the Department of Justice with Attorney General William Barr. While opening the hearing, subcommittee Chairman Jose Serrano of NY called it "the elephant in the room".

Walton's ruling came as U.S. Attorney General William Barr, testifying in Congress on Tuesday, said he would deliver a redacted copy of Mueller's report to lawmakers "within a week".

'My original timetable of being able to release this by mid-April stands....'

The attorney general also said the door appears open to more investigations or reports about the conduct of the Russian Federation investigation - music to the ears of Republicans who have followed the lead of President Trump in calling it a "witch hunt" or suggesting it is the product of a conspiracy by the FBI and the Justice Department.

The New York Times and The Washington Post reported last week that some investigators on Mr. Mueller's team were unhappy with the way Mr. Barr described their findings. Barr asked the Democratic congressman, who pointed out the resources the Justice Department is allotting to the case in Texas.

Barr added that Mueller had been offered the opportunity to review a four-page letter summarizing the findings in the almost 400-page report, but that the special counsel declined.

Others have said Barr made the right decision on the obstruction question, noting that it is hard to prove that Trump committed criminal obstruction if Mueller did not find that he destroyed evidence or directly interfered with the investigation - even though he assailed the inquiry as a "witch hunt" and called the investigators partisan zealots.

Nita Lowey if the White House had seen the report before he released his summarizing letter or since then, or whether they've been briefed on the contents beyond what was in the letter, Barr responded: "I've said what I'm going to say about the report today..."

If Mueller does testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee, it will be the latest in a series of wildly hyped congressional hearings that have marked the the Trump presidency, from James Comey's testimony to the Kavanaugh hearings and, most recently, Michael Cohen's appearance before the House Oversight Committee. "I suspect that they probably wanted more put out", he said.

Barr said in the summary released last month that Mueller didn't find a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the Kremlin.

"More generally, I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016", Barr said.

Republicans defended Barr, with Alabama Rep. Robert Aderholt comparing Democrats' questions to theories surrounding President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination.

"In many ways, your letter raises more questions than it answers", she added.

Republican appropriators said any provisions forcing Barr's hand would not survive the Senate, particularly when Barr made clear that he is bound by law to withhold some parts of the Mueller report.

He has noted that Mueller found no evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign, but did not draw a conclusion on obstruction of justice. Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided that the evidence was insufficient to establish obstruction.

On Tuesday, Barr laid out what the Justice Department needs for law enforcement across the country, but he was mostly grilled on the Mueller report and his summary of the special counsel's findings.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating the use of the (FISA) warrants in the Russian Federation investigation since March past year. At one point in the House hearing, he tried to cut off any more questions on the subject.

"They still want some salacious detail out of this thing, but I don't think they're ever going to get it", Chaffetz said.
