“I’m very disturbed by that,” Nadler said, according to Politico. “He wouldn’t commit to that.”
Chairman Nadler told reporters April 2 is a “hard deadline” and, “we mean it.”
But perhaps the most concerning revelation, coming from Politico's Kyle Cheney, is that "Nadler says Barr wouldn’t commit to turning over the full report."
That comports with news from The New York Times Tuesday night, which was not widely reported. Barr may give Congress a "summary," and not the actual Mueller report, "within weeks." Barr may never turn over the full Mueller report.
Barr also said he will agree to testify before Congress. Congress can order Barr to testify at nearly any time, so agreeing in advance is not a concession.
"Nadler said he and Barr didn't discuss whether the report includes a counterintelligence component," Cheney says, adding that their conversation lasted just 10 minutes.
During the call Barr described the Mueller report as "substantial," and somewhere under 1000 pages.
