Attorney General William Barr is expected to deliver a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings to Congress on Sunday, several outlets reported Sunday citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.

The Washington Post, citing an unnamed person familiar with the matter, reported that Barr was “expected to issue sometime Sunday a summary of the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation.”

And CNN, also citing an unnamed person familiar with the process, said Barr was “expected to provide Congress and the public Sunday with his summary of the main conclusions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

An unnamed member of the House Judiciary Committee told The Hill that the Justice Department told committee members to expect a “briefing of the conclusions,” in the publication’s words, by 5 p.m.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
