House Votes to Demand Public Release of Mueller Report

House endorses making Mueller report public in unanimous 420-0 vote

"I am deeply concerned that Attorney General Barr may attempt to withhold Mueller's full report from the public and the underlying evidence from Congress", said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff ahead of the vote.

The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be released to the public once it is completed. The non-binding resolution is meant to pressure Attorney General William Barr to release as much information as possible, but it's unclear if the Senate will take it up.

News of his departure, first reported by National Public Radio, came a day after Manafort was sentenced by a federal judge in Washington, bringing his total punishment to 7-1/2 years in prison from two criminal cases brought by Mueller's team.

Multiple Democrat leaders, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have vowed to sue the the Trump administration should the DOJ refuse to turn over the full report to Congress.

As such, it is not clear if the Republican leader of the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, will put the resolution on the Senate floor for a vote.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the measure, saying there is "overwhelming public interest" for the report to be widely distributed.

"To maintain that a sitting president can not be indicted no matter how much evidence there is because he's a sitting president, and then to withhold evidence of wrongdoing from Congress because the president can not be charged, is to convert the DOJ policy into a the means for a cover up", Nadler said on the House floor just before the vote. He said he has no reason to believe that Barr won't follow the regulations.

But the effort did not move forward after Republican Sen.

"Among other things, the president has repeatedly referred to the investigation as a witch hunt and called it a hoax, rigged, and a scam", he continued. That report must explain why the special counsel chose to either pursue or decline prosecutions. Concerns over Weismann's credibility as an independent investigator plagued the Mueller deputy since joining the Russia Probe.

If a full report isn't released, House Democrats have made clear they will do whatever they can to get hold of it. Nadler has said he would subpoena the final report and invite - or even subpoena - Mueller to talk about it.

Justice Department regulations governing special counsels give Barr latitude in deciding how much of the report to make public. A CNN poll released last month found that support for a public release stands at 80% among Republicans and those who approve of the way the President is handling his job, and at 92% among Democrats and those who disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job.
