Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report to the Attorney General William Barr on Friday, igniting a flurry of responses from the media and politicians, including Colorado's congressional delegation.

In a letter to Congress, Barr said he could share "the special counsel's principal conclusions as soon as this weekend."

If the House and Senate judiciary committees see the report before other committees, Reps. Joe Neguse and Ken Buck will be the first Colorado congress members to read it.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R)

"I have consistently said the Mueller investigation should be allowed to reach a conclusion, and I’m grateful the Special Counsel has finished the investigation and submitted a report today. The American people have a right to know the outcome of this investigation and the Department of Justice should release as much as possible to the public in accordance with the law."

Sen. Michael Bennet (D)

Rep. Diana DeGette (D-1)

Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-7)
