"I've been fully briefed on the investigation and I look forward to Director Mueller delivering the final report", he said.

Whitaker was among the outside voices who faulted Mueller after Rosenstein appointed him in the spring of 2017. "Right now, the investigation is, I think, close to being completed".

Without elaborating, Whitaker said: "I am comfortable that the decisions that were made are going to be reviewed", he added. He has also acknowledged that he discussed Mueller with Trump himself when he turned down an opportunity to represent the president in the special counsel's investigation. They included another commitment to make public whatever report Mueller completes, although all along Barr has been careful to say he would observe the law and Justice Department regulations as appropriate - stopping short of a blanket promise.

On Friday, long time Trump confidante Roger Stone became the sixth Trump associate to be charged by Mueller.

He is due to appear before the House Judiciary Committee on February 8, where he is expected to be peppered with questions over his role in the Mueller probe and whether he has taken steps to narrow it or limit what Mueller can investigate. He began overseeing the probe after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at President Trump's request in November.
