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."
