I am going to consult separately with the Deputy Prosecutor General Rosenstein and Special Prosecutor Muller to decide how much of the information from the report can be disclosed to Congress and the general public so that it complies with the law, in particular with the provisions of the Special Prosecutor, as well as with established practice and policy.William BarrUS Attorney General
