Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has submitted a confidential report to Attorney General William P. Barr, marking the end of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump, a Justice Department spokeswoman said.

The Justice Department notified Congress late Friday that it had received Muellerโ€™s report but did not describe its contents. Barr is expected to summarize the findings for lawmakers in coming days.

In a letter to the leaders of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Barr wrote that Mueller โ€œhas concluded his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters.โ€

Barr wrote that Mueller submitted a report to him explaining his prosecution decisions. The attorney general told lawmakers he was โ€œreviewing the report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counselโ€™s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.โ€
