Although a separate inspector general report on whether the FBI abused its surveillance powers is anticipated by May or June, another investigation is well underway, according to a Tuesday report from Fox News.
Attorney-General William Barr appears before a House Appropriations subcommittee.
Barr was testifying for a second day at a congressional budget hearing that was dominated by questions about special counsel Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia investigation. The network is available in more than 80 million homes in all markets across the United States.
Mueller's investigation completed last month without securing the indictment of a single American for collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice, "despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign". Democrats have expressed concern that his version will hide wrongdoing by the president and are frustrated by the four-page summary letter he released last month that they say paints Mueller's findings in an overly favorable way for the president.
Barr said that the redactions would be "color-coded" and accompanied by "explanatory notes", and added that the "special counsel and his staff are helping select the information in the report that falls into those [four] categories".
Barr said he expects to release a redacted copy of the report next week.
Barr, who was nominated to his post by Trump four months ago, was asked about spying by Republican Sen.
"As I've stated before, in order to ensure that our immigration system works properly, we must secure our nation's borders, and we must ensure that our laws allow us to process, hold, and remove those who violate our immigration laws", Barr says. Barr anticipated referrals from House intelligence committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-California), but denied having yet seen the referrals.

"I think there was probably a failure among a group of leaders there at the upper echelon", Barr said of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he also signaled a willingness to look into "intelligence agencies more broadly". Barr made one thing certain.
Barr is appearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee one day after he testified before a House subcommittee and answered many - though not all - questions from lawmakers about the release of Mueller's almost 400 page report.
"You're darn right I'm going after them again", Giuliani told the Associated Press of Mueller's team.
Barr was also questioned about the initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil members of the Trump campaign, including former Trump aide Carter Page.
At the White House on Wednesday, Trump repeated his claim that the investigation was illegal.
Though he said the document will be redacted to withhold negative information about peripheral figures in the investigation, he said that would not apply to Trump, an officeholder and someone central to the probe. Barr said his department had an idea of what would be coming from the Mueller team and therefore had a matter of weeks to think through how it would draft the March 24 letter to Congress.
Some good news, other than Barr's stellar performance, is that Barr is investigating the origin of the entire Trump-RUSSIA travesty.
