WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday postponed a vote on President Donald Trump's attorney general nominee, William Barr, as Democrats expressed concern that he might not make public a final report on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, the committee's chairman, said a vote to send Barr to the full Senate for a confirmation vote would be delayed, along with other nominees being considered by the committee.

The vote will now take place on February 5, according to a Democratic aide.
