House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is already unsatisfied.

Attorney General William Barr delivered a press conference Thursday ahead of releasing a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. He finished about an hour before Congress was expected to receive the report, yet Nadler still sent a letter to Mueller right as Barr wrapped, asking the special counsel to testify before his Judiciary Committee. Nadler had apparently made this same request in the past, he noted in his letter, and is now asking Mueller to appear "no later than May 23."

Nadler had already called on Barr to postpone his press conference until after the public saw the report, and his committee approved a subpoena to receive the full, unredacted report earlier this month. Kathryn Krawczyk
