WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler gave Attorney General William Barr until Monday morning to give lawmakers access to the full, unredacted version of U.S. Special Counsel Robert’ Mueller report on his Russia probe.

Nadler’s 9 a.m. (1300 GMT) Monday deadline, announced in a statement, comes after Barr rejected the panel’s request to appear publicly at a hearing scheduled on Thursday.
