In four-page summary of Mr Mueller's report on March 24, Mr Barr wrote that the special counsel did not find that Mr Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election. AG Barr has already said he is working on a redacted version to share with Congress so it's not clear why this leak to the Times is necessary except that, as the story itself says, some members of the team don't want public views of the report to harden into the conventional wisdom yet.
At the same time, the House Judiciary Committee authorized its chairman to use a subpoena to try to force the Justice Department to give Congress a full copy of the special counsel Mueller's report and all of the underlying evidence used to reach his conclusions on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Barr told Congress in a letter last week that he must redact material presented to a grand jury, as required by law, as well as information that could reveal USA intelligence agencies' sources and methods. Neither news report gets very specific about what parts of Barr's letter the members of the investigation had issues with, though the Post said investigators had found "alarming and significant" evidence against Trump for obstruction of justice.

The investigators said Barr, in his memo to Congress, did not adequately portray the results of their almost two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the Times reported Wednesday, according to government officials and others familiar with their frustrations. "If we can not reach an accommodation, then we will have no choice but to issue subpoenas for these materials".
