WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) - Attorney General William Barr hopes to release special counsel Robert Mueller's report, with redactions, within a week, he told members of the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday.

Barr had said he hopes to release the full report by mid-April, after releasing a four-page summary of Mueller's report that Democrats deemed unsatisfactory. Barr, however, is reluctant to get into details of the report, and he's on Capitol Hill ostensibly to testify about the Justice Department's budget.

Barr said the Mueller report redactions would be color-coded to indicate why the information could not be made public.

Grand jury information, details that could reveal confidential intelligence sources and information that would interfere with ongoing cases will be redacted, Barr said.
