Attorney General William Barr testified Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee and was slated to reappear Thursday. However, Barr canceled his Thursday testimony after he was interrogated by Democratic lawmakers on a myriad of issues pertaining to special counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats on the Senate committee also publicly disclosed a letter Wednesday that Mueller wrote to Barr following the March letter the attorney general sent Congress.

Barr’s memo detailed his principal conclusion about Mueller’s report. In summary, Barr said he and the deputy attorney general concluded that Trump’s actions did not constitute obstruction of justice.

In the letter released Wednesday, Mueller rebuked the attorney general’s characterization of his investigation, accusing Barr of creating “public confusion about critical aspects of the results.”

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions,” Mr. Mueller wrote in the letter addressed to Barr.

“There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation,” Mr. Mueller wrote. “This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”
