Early Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Barr's move and urged Mueller to testify publicly about his report.

“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning – hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it – have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” the statement read.
