WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the newly confirmed US attorney general should be the person who decides whether to publicly release the much-anticipated Russia report, which could be completed as early as next week, reports AFP.

The remarks came as CNN reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has headed the probe since May 2017, could deliver his final report next week, possibly when Trump travels to Asia for his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Asked at the White House whether Mueller should release the text while the president is out of the country, a subdued Trump said “that will be totally up to the new attorney general,” Bill Barr.
