During a hearing about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) budget on Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray was asked about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the 2020 FBI budget. 

“Have you had an occasion to read the Mueller report?” Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) asked Wray at the beginning of the hearing.

"I have not,” Wray replied.

What's interesting about this: Mueller turned in his report almost two weeks ago. During his almost two-year investigation, Mueller utilized three dozen agents from the FBI, which falls under the Department of Justice, The Hill reported.

Attorney General William Barr provided Congress with a summary of Mueller's report on March 24th, at which time no further indictments were brought forth against President Donald Trump's campaign team. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also concluded there was not sufficient evidence to say Trump obstructed justice. 

House Democrats have called on Barr to release Mueller's full report without any redactions. President Trump, as well as other Republicans, have voiced support for making the full report available to the public. Barr said he plans to release a redacted version of the report in mid-April. He plans to leave out details that could impact ongoing investigations, grand jury information, classified information and “information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.”

Although Barr anticipates the report being released in mid-April, he did say it could come sooner. 

The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted to subpoena the report and any supporting evidence. It remains unclear when Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) plans to issue the subpoena.
