Carr says in a statement that a “small number” of the office’s staff will remain “to assist in closing the operations of the office.”
He did not provide a specific timeline for when that might occur.
As of Friday, 11 prosecutors were still employed by the special counsel’s office.
The statement comes just hours after Mueller turned in his confidential report closing his probe of Russian election interference and possible co-ordination with Donald Trump’s campaign.
