The Justice Department says the report was delivered on Friday, for review by the attorney general.

The confidential report will likely set the stage for public fights to come, but the next steps will be up to Barr, Congress, and possibly federal courts. ABC News reports, a senior DOJ official says there will be no further indictments.

Sources say President Donald Trump was 'glad' the investigation is over.

It was not clear Friday, how much of the report will become public or be reported to Congress. Barr has previously said he will write his own report summarizing the findings.

Thus far, the two year probe has shadowed Donald Trump's presidency, and landed felony charges against 34 people, 6 of whom served on Trump's campaign.

Politico reports, Barr wrote a letter to congressional leaders saying he might be able to advise lawmakers of Mueller's 'principal conclusions' as early as this weekend. The DOJ expects to deliver those conclusions to the public.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Barr to make the report public, and believes that he will.

"I think the demand of the public is overwhelming to see the report when it's on such a serious matter and it will be made public," he said.

He also called on Barr not to give a sneak preview to the White House, out of concern that the Trump administration could influence which parts of the report become public.

"The American people have a right to the truth. The watch word is 'transparency," he said.

A DOJ spokesperson says 'very few people' have seen the report, but wouldn't comment on length or format.
