Between the press conference and the release of the full report, Booker tweeted from his campaign account: “The American people deserve the truth. Not spin from a Trump appointee. Release Mueller's full report now.”

Booker also addressed Barr’s press conference from his Senate Twitter account, posting: “Yet again Attorney General Barr has tried to spin the Mueller report before providing the actual report or the evidence underlying it. This is undermining the independence of this entire process.”
