Asked by reporters whether special counsel Robert Mueller's full report should be made public, President Trump said: "It's up to the attorney general, but it wouldn't bother me at all."

Why it matters: Democrats have largely expressed dissatisfaction at Attorney General William Barr's summary of Mueller's findings, demanding that the full report and its underlying evidence be released. Barr wrote in his summary Sunday that he and Mueller will work together "expeditiously" to determine what material can be made public "in light of applicable law, regulations, and Departmental policies."
