House approves measure calling for Mueller report to be made public

House votes 420-0 to demand public release of Mueller report House approves measure calling for Mueller report to be made public
Bennie Garza | 15 March, 2019, 07:52

The House has voted in a bipartisan decision to urge the Justice Department to publicly release Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on President Trump's campaign and Russian election interference to Congress and the public.

The resolution, introduced last week by the heads of six House oversight committees that are investigating Trump, calls on Barr to make public everything in the Mueller report that is not expressly prohibited by law and to provide the entire document to Congress.

Schumer accused Graham of blocking the resolution as a result of his request, saying, "Let the American people know that the Republican majority in the Senate, at least for now, is blocking a resolution that the Mueller report should be made public".

Once the investigation concludes, Mueller will submit a written report to Barr, who will then need to brief Congress. Concerns over Weismann's credibility as an independent investigator plagued the Mueller deputy since joining the Russia Probe.

The resolution is unlikely to be passed in the Senate, where Democratic Leader Charles Schumer tried to bring it up hours after House passage.

At his Senate confirmation hearing in February, Barr was asked about sharing Mueller's report upon its completion. That report must explain why the special counsel chose to either pursue or decline prosecutions.

Four Republicans voted present, including Florida GOP Rep.

But the effort did not move forward after Republican Sen.

In February, six House Democratic committee chairs, led by Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of NY, made a similar request in a letter to Barr.

I'm tempted to write "Since when do congressional Republicans defy Trump?" but today would be the wrong day to make that point.

If Mueller alleges obstruction of justice but finds no collusion, a Democrat with a copy of the report will obviously whisper to the media about the former, not the latter. "Full transparency is the only way to prevent future speculation".

"I want the American people to know as much as they can and see as much as they can", said Hurd, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer.

"They came in and so many of them said they wanted to work with the president and get things done for infrastructure and health care and instead they're moving on all these radical ideas", Gidley said of Democrats in an interview on Fox News. But he stopped short of giving a full-throated guarantee that the report would be made public.

He said the resolution was also needed because Department of Justice officials have hinted they may not "release information about individuals who are not indicted".

"We'll see", he said.
