Mueller, who submitted his confidential report on his findings to Barr on Friday, neither accused Trump of obstruction of justice in trying to impede the investigation nor exonerated him of obstruction, according to the summary. Earlier this month, the House voted 420-0 in favour of making the report public, with no Republican opposition.
A fight brewed between Democrats and Republicans over the public release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election, while President Donald Trump kept up attacks on his critics on Monday.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer is trying to quickly pass a resolution Monday, saying that since the president supports releasing the report, "there's no good reason for anyone to object".
"The best thing to happen - for the country, for the GOP, for the Democratic Party - is for voters to resolve all these matters", says Pete Wehner, a senior fellow at the conservative Ethics and Public Policy Center and a leading Trump critic on the right.
Many Democrats say Barr is conflicted because of his views - expressed in a memo to the administration before becoming attorney general - that the president can not be charged with obstruction since he oversees the Justice Department.
On the other side of the Capitol, Republicans in the House blamed Democrats who now wield the chamber's majority - and, in particular, Schiff - for fanning the flames of a collusion storyline they say Mueller has now debunked.
"The issuance of these definitive findings comes after two years of Democrat leaders and others lying to the American people by vigorously and repeatedly claiming there was evidence of collusion", the memo read.

A Venezuelan official said Russian military officials were visiting to discuss equipment maintenance and training, and strategy. The information ministry did not respond to requests for comment on the presence of the planes or the Bloomberg report.
"The Mainstream Media is under fire and being scorned all over the World as being corrupt and FAKE", he wrote.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said he hopes Barr will testify before his panel. Questioned by reporters, Trump said he welcomed Mueller's results but complained he had been abused by the investigation occurring at all and taking too long.
Updated 1:13 p.m. | At the White House, special counsel Robert S. Mueller's Russian Federation election meddling investigation has quickly morphed from a "hoax" and a "witch hunt" into the "gold standard".
Trump's repeated insistence on his own innocence in the question of possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election was validated by Barr's letter, and Trump has had no more consistent an insistence over the past two years than that the Mueller probe was misguided.
A cloud has been lifted from the American president, although about ten separate investigations by Congress and local prosecutors are still under way on the broader relationship of Mr Trump and Moscow.
Trump also said he had not thought about pardoning anyone convicted or who pleaded guilty in the Mueller probe. Among those whom Mueller charged during the course of his investigation were the president's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
There's still more action to come from the Justice Department as part of its Russian Federation investigation, but the White House and supporters appear to feel a page has turned in their favor.
