It's been 24 hours since Attorney General Bill Barr announced Special Counsel Robert Mueller has officially concluded his two-year long investigation into the 2016 presidential election.
When the announcement was made late Friday afternoon, the White House had not been briefed on the report.
The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course. The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel’s report.— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) March 22, 2019
As of Saturday afternoon, the situation hasn't changed. Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters Sanders' statement stands.
Meanwhile, President Trump is in Florida this weekend where he is conducting a series of meetings with foreign leaders and administration officials. He golfed Saturday morning and the White House called an early lid on the traveling press pool.
Attorney General Barr is expected to release a few details about the findings in Mueller's report as early as Sunday.

Attorneys for President Trump have reportedly asked for a briefing on the report before any of its details are made public.

Rudy Giuliani in quite a good mood. "Do you see this sun? It's a great day in Washington. The weather got nice as soon as the report was submitted," he just told me by phone. "God loves Republicans. Well, maybe not all of them, but enough."— Elaina Plott (@elainaplott) March 23, 2019
