US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public

US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public

The nonbinding resolution puts House Republicans and Democrats on the record in support of disclosing Mueller's findings as Democrats continue to spar with the Justice Department over whether they'll receive the special counsel's full report and materials from his investigation. Yet it seems even Republicans are fed up with the secrecy, as the House voted unanimously Thursday on a resolution demanding the report be made public.

As Robert Mueller continues to work behind the scenes, for what many believe is an imminent report on the Trump campaign's possible collusion with the Russian government, the US House of Representatives continue to push for transparency.

The vote was overwhelmingly bipartisan, with 420 members voting in favor of the resolution and zero voting against it.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he objected to that, unless the resolution also included a provision to call for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate the Justice Department's handling of the Clinton email investigation during the 2016 presidential race. But nobody has lifted a finger to call for an investigation into the other side of the story.

"This resolution is critical because of the many questions and criticisms of the investigation raised by the president and his administration", said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler.

Trump has labeled Mueller's investigation a "witch hunt", maintaining that no collusion occurred between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation. Those regulations require only that the report explain decisions to pursue or to decline prosecutions, which could be as simple as a bullet point list or as fulsome as a report running hundreds of pages.

Militao has signed a six-year deal at the Bernabeu, with Madrid confirming he has committed his future to the club until 2025. The defender, who will join in the summer, is 21 years old and is a full worldwide with Brazil .

Gidley said he hadn't spoken with Trump about whether the report should be made public. "Full transparency is the only way to prevent future speculation".

"I am going to make as much information available as I can consistent with the rules and regulations that are part of the special counsel regulations", he told lawmakers. Mr. Barr can release the report publicly if he decides it is in the public interest.

Schumer added that he was "deeply disappointed" in Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. The letter asked for a public release of the Mueller report and that the attorney general provide to Congress any information in the report that can not be publicly released by law.

Democrats - and several Republicans - want Barr to release more than just Mueller's full report.

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

"If necessary, our committee will subpoena the report".
