In the letter and a subsequent phone call between the two men, Mueller said Barr's letter to Congress on the report's principal conclusions did not fully capture the substance of the more than 440-page document.
"He expressed frustration over the lack of context and the resulting media coverage regarding the special counsel's obstruction analysis," a Justice Department spokeswoman said.
The revelation comes as Barr is scheduled to testify about the investigation on Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Opposition leader Juan Guaidó called for mass anti-government protests and military defections, announcing what he termed the "final phase" in an operation attempting to remove President Nicolás Maduro from office.
Maduro's government denounced the actions as a "coup attempt."
Some of the clashes were violent, with tear gas and rubber bullets being used on protesters. Local media showed video of what appeared to be a military vehicle running over demonstrators.
