Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, added that "we’re all speculating about" what's in the report, which is reportedly more than 300 pages long.

"My guess is that when you see the whole report, you will see good reasons for why a number of people … were concerned by the possibility, since disproved, that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians," Himes added.

Democrats have demanded the full report in the days since Barr summarized the report in a letter to Congress. Barr said in the letter that Mueller, who investigated Russian interference in the 2016 election, determined that the Trump campaign did not coordinate with Russia ahead of the election.
