The report, which was made available for free online, is also No. 1 on the paper’s combined print and e-book list.

“This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations,” Mueller wrote.

Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Barr told the panel he found Mueller’s letter “snitty” and wished Mueller had communicated his concerns by phone.
