Reports by The New York Times and The Washington Post released Wednesday evening said that some of Mueller's investigators believed that the results of the special counsel's investigation were more damaging to Mr. Trump than Barr's letter revealed.
For instance, Mueller's team apparently produced not just a monolithic 400-page report, but also gave Barr multiple summaries of different sections prepared for an almost-immediate public release.
House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) said he was unsurprised by reports that Attorney General William Barr did not adequately outline special counsel Robert Mueller's report because he didn't "come into this with clean hands".
In Barr's March 24 four-page summary of Mueller's conclusions, he said there was no evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to skew the 2016 presidential election in Trump's favour.
Mr Barr told the committee in a letter last week that a redacted version of the full 300-page report would be released by mid-April, "if not sooner", after his office completed a process that would keep sensitive information private.
Mueller's team wrote the summaries "in a way that minimum redactions, if any, would have been necessary", assuming that they would be made public and there was "immediate displeasure" when they read how Barr characterized their work, a United States official told the Post.
Barr himself went further than Mueller in his summary letter, declaring that Mueller's evidence was insufficient to prove in court that Trump had committed obstruction of justice to hamper the probe.
"The subpoena for the Mueller report and its underlying evidence commands the attorney general to do what the unthinkable is", said committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.).
The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines Wednesday to authorize subpoenas for Mueller's full report after the Justice Department missed a Democrat-imposed deadline Tuesday.

"They've shifted and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it, I get it". He also attributed the complaints against him to the fact that " social norms are changing ".
On top of all that, Boot notes, are concerns over Trump's tax returns, which the president has not made public-and which Democrat Richard Neal, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has requested from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Nadler told reporters he would also seek a judge's permission to get access to Mueller's grand jury material, which is protected by law. They say Attorney General Bill Barr's redacted version won't be enough.
Trump ally Lindsey Graham, Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote on Twitter that the House panel's demand for classified information and grand jury testimony was "dangerous and ridiculous".
President Trump claimed Thursday that congressional Democrats are subjecting him to the "highest level of Presidential Harassment" in the nation's history.
Equally troubling, investigators reportedly believe Barr not only significantly misrepresented their report, but also their intentions when they submitted the report.
"I think Mueller had really no choice but to punt on this question and leave it to Barr to decide, and Barr, predictably, concluded there was no basis for a prosecution", Lazare told hosts John Kiriakou and Walter Smolarek.
"The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report".
Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, who have been defending Trump throughout the Mueller investigation, decried the Democrat majority's actions as perpetuating fabricated claims created to undermine Trump and his presidency.
