Attorney General William Barr will not share "principal conclusions" of Robert Mueller's report on alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 US presidential elections with lawmakers today, US Department of Justice officials said on Saturday (local time).

Mueller's 22-month long investigation into probable Russian interference in the presidential elections culminated on Friday, with the special counsel submitting his findings to Barr.

All eyes are on the Attorney General, as it has been reported that Barr may share "principal conclusion as soon as this weekend" with lawmakers at Capitol Hill.

The wrapping up of the investigation, which has seen charges being filed against 37 defendants, seven guilty pleas and one conviction, means that there will be no further indictments, CNN reported.

US President Donald Trump, who came into power in 2016, has often decried the Mueller investigation, labelling it as a "witch hunt".

Democrat leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have urged Barr to not give a "sneak preview" of the final report to Trump or his aides at the White House. (ANI)
