House Votes 420-0 for Public Release of Mueller Report

Pressure AG William Barr was asked to publish the full report

House Republicans united with their Democratic counterparts to pass a resolution demanding that the Department of Justice release to Congress, and then to the public the full report of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

If you're a Republican, wouldn't you rather leave it in Bill Barr's discretion as to whether to release Mueller's findings considering that (a) Barr is Trump's handpicked AG, (b) an outspoken skeptic of certain aspects of Mueller's investigation, and (c) unlike congressional Republicans, he'll actually know the contents of the report when he makes his decision?

The resolution, however, is non-binding, meaning that Mueller and Attorney General William Barr are not required to publicly disclose the report.

Democrats - and several Republicans - want Barr to release more than just Mueller's full report. They do not require release of the report but also do not prevent Barr from giving the entire document to Congress.

Additionally, it is still uncertain whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will bring the resolution to the Senate floor for a vote.

At his Senate confirmation hearing in February, Barr was asked about sharing Mueller's report upon its completion.

"I've said to millions of Americans on television that I support releasing the Mueller report".

At least one Republican is siding with Democrats. He was rebuffed when Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham objected. "And in the end, I think the department understands they're going to have to make this public".

"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.

Democrats are anxious that Barr's strict defense of his own prerogative, combined with his stated respect for Justice Department rules advising against both the indictment of a sitting president or impugning an unindicted individual in an investigative report, means potential information implicating President Donald Trump in alleged wrongdoing could be buried. "The American people need the information here". Graham, a close ally of Trump's, said he would only allow the Mueller resolution from the House to move forward if it were amended to call for a new special counsel to investigate misconduct at the Justice Department surrounding the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the abuse of the secret surveillance warrant process. But he stopped short of giving a full-throated guarantee that the report would be made public.

"We'll see", he said.
