The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena on Friday, demanding that the Justice Department deliver the full, unredacted version of the special counsel report by May 1, as the Russia investigation shifts from the executive branch to Congress.
President Trump lashed out in a string of Twitter posts Friday morning, blasting the special counsel investigation, calling it a hoax and partisan, even as he reveled in its release a day earlier.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, defended her claim about the “countless” number of F.B.I. employees who had lost faith in James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director fired by Mr. Trump. The special counsel interviewed her last summer about the remarks, and she told investigators it was a “slip of the tongue.”
The investigation of Mr. Trump’s activities related to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including efforts to impede the inquiry, is moving from the executive branch to Congress, where the matter is anything but resolved.
Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a subpoena on Friday, demanding that the Justice Department hand over the complete and unredacted version of the report and all of the underlying materials by May 1.

“Even the redacted version of the report outlines serious instances of wrongdoing by President Trump and some of his closest associates,” Mr. Nadler said on Friday. “It now falls to Congress to determine the full scope of that alleged misconduct and to decide what steps we must take going forward.”
Mr. Nadler has said it is too early to decide whether impeachment proceedings are warranted.
He and other Democrats criticized the attorney general for a sparse summary of the report favorable to the president last month and for publicly defending the president and making excuses for some of his actions during a news conference on Thursday morning before the report was even released.
Mr. Nadler said Mr. Barr is scheduled to testify before his committee on May 2, and he also has asked the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to testify no later than May 23. Mr. Barr said on Thursday that he had no objection to Mr. Mueller testifying.
In a pair of Friday morning Twitter posts, Mr. Trump criticized the special counsel investigation, suggesting some of the material cited in the report was fabricated and accusing the special counsel’s investigators of being Democratic “Trump Haters.”
Mr. Trump sent the tweets from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he is spending the weekend.
A day earlier, Mr. Trump and his supporters celebrated the investigation’s conclusions and the lack of criminal charges against him. On Thursday, Mr. Trump said he was “having a good day.” Before an event at the White House for wounded troops, Mr. Trump said, “It’s called ‘no collusion, no obstruction.’ There never was, by the way, and there never will be.”
After the report’s release on Thursday and as Mr. Trump took to Twitter to admonish former aides for providing notes of conversations, several former aides who had spoken with the special counsel’s team said they were frustrated by his reaction.
Three people who worked in the White House and who cooperated with Mr. Mueller’s team, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that the White House had decided in 2017 not to assert executive privilege, and encouraged aides to work with the special counsel.
By doing that, these people said, Mr. Trump and Ty Cobb, the official in the White House Counsel’s Office who encouraged participation, set in motion a course in which witnesses had to be forthcoming with investigators under penalty of perjury.
Now, they said, Mr. Trump is faulting them when he could have asserted privilege over his conversations with aides and tried to prevent investigators from learning about those interactions.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, defended on Friday a claim she made in 2017 that the White House had heard from “countless” people who worked at the F.B.I. who had lost confidence in Mr. Comey, then the director.
During an interview with the special counsel that is detailed in the report, Ms. Sanders said her choice of words was a “slip of the tongue.” When investigators asked her why she repeated the “countless” claim — which reporters had questioned her on — in a separate interview, she said it was made “in the heat of the moment that was not founded on anything.”
In an interview on Thursday night with Fox News, Ms. Sanders said, “I used the word ‘countless,’ but it’s not untrue.”
On Friday, Ms. Sanders told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “there were a number” of current and former members of the F.B.I. who agreed with Mr. Trump’s decision.
“It wasn’t a scripted talking point,” Ms. Sanders said of her word choice. “I’m sorry that I wasn’t a robot like the Democratic Party.”
Senator Mitt Romney, Republican of Utah, offered a blistering assessment of the report on Friday. In a message he posted on Twitter, Mr. Romney called it “a sobering revelation of how far we have strayed from the aspirations and principles of the founders.” Still, he said, “the business of government can move on.”
“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the president,” Mr. Romney wrote in a statement, adding that he was “appalled” that the president’s campaign would welcome help from a foreign adversary.

“Congress needs to get to the bottom of this in a vigorous investigation and see where that leads,” Mr. Inslee said on a local Fox station in Los Angeles.
“Impeachment should not be off the table,” he said. “This is not the end, it’s not the beginning of the end, it’s the end of the beginning.”Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts
Mr. O’Rourke said he would defer to his former colleagues in the House on the question of impeachment, but drew applause during a town hall-style meeting Thursday night when he said that Mr. Trump’s fate would be “decided in November of 2020 and will inform the choice that we make.”
During an interview on CNN, Mr. Castro said impeachment would be “perfectly reasonable.”
“It’s clear that Bob Mueller and his report left that in the hands of Congress,” Mr. Castro said. “They’re going to decide if they’re going to go down that route.”

The Justice Department’s release of the report on Thursday elicited claims of validation from the White House and Democrats — and endless analysis of an unprecedented investigation into a foreign adversary’s efforts to influence American democracy and whether the president tried to obstruct justice.
Did Russia try to influence the 2016 presidential election? Yes, according to the special counsel team.
Did the Trump campaign criminally conspire with Russia to try to influence the election? No, the report found.
Did Mr. Trump obstruct justice? Unclear.
Attorney General William P. Barr said Mr. Mueller’s team did not make a determination about whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice, but he and the deputy attorney general did: “The evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense,” Mr. Barr said on Thursday morning before the report was released.
But the report itself, even with redactions, describes a much more complicated consideration as investigators struggled to determine whether a number of the president’s actions constituted criminal obstruction of justice.
“If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment,” the report said. “The evidence we obtained about the president’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred.”
Representatives Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, two of Mr. Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress, presented a two-pronged defense of the president during an appearance on CNN on Friday morning.
They repeated the bottom-line conclusions presented by Mr. Trump and Mr. Barr — no collusion and no obstruction — even though the report made clear that the Trump campaign expected to benefit from Russia’s election meddling.
And they attacked the origins of the special counsel investigation, echoing Mr. Trump’s comments on Twitter.
“What we have to understand is the predicate of this whole investigation,” Mr. Meadows said, suggesting that the officials who began and who oversaw the Russia investigation were anti-Trump. “To suggest that there was no bias at the predicate of this investigation is not accurate.”
Mr. Barr has said he will review the F.B.I.’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, including whether there was any “improper spying” by American intelligence agencies. During the early days of his presidency, Mr. Trump accused the Obama administration of spying on him.
