'Release the Mueller Report. Now': 300+ Rallies Nationwide to Demand Full Transparency

House Democrats Take First Official Step Toward Obtaining the Mueller Report

The department said Attorney General William Barr must strike confidential information from the almost 400-page document as reports surfaced in the news media that members of Mr Mueller's team were unhappy with the way Barr had characterised its main conclusions.

Just one day after Barr released his principal conclusions, Nadler, along with five other committee chairs, sent him a letter mandating that they receive the entire report by April 2.

"The department continues to work with the special counsel on appropriate redactions to the report so that it can be released to Congress and the public", Kupec said.

Neither is Barr's decision to release a redacted version of the report, which he's indicated is necessary to protect classified information as well as information about ongoing federal investigations.

Barr himself went further than Mueller in his summary letter, declaring that Mueller's evidence was insufficient to prove in court that Trump had committed obstruction of justice to hamper the probe.

"This committee requires the full report and the underlying materials because it is our job, not the attorney general's, to determine whether or not President Trump has abused his office", Nadler said.

"We have reason to suspect [the Trump administration's] motives", Nadler said in a statement on Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee voted to authorise subpoenas for the report.

On top of all that, Boot notes, are concerns over Trump's tax returns, which the president has not made public-and which Democrat Richard Neal, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has requested from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Nadler nearly certainly will not issue the subpoena immediately.

Some of Mueller's investigators told associates their report was more damaging to President Donald Trump than the attorney general has described, and New York Timesreporter Michael Schmidt told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" what he learned about that disconnect.

Mueller's team reportedly wrote "multiple summaries of the report". They argue that he's pressing for the full report before he's even seen the redacted version, and point to the restrictions that Attorney General Barr legally faces in sending the report to Congress.

Since the delay, the House judiciary committee have approved subpoenas to access the document. Most of the documents were provided, however, and Harriett Miers, the former White House counsel under President George W. Bush, had to testify under oath, but in a closed, transcribed hearing.

"The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report", Trump wrote on Twitter.

The committee rejected a GOP amendment that would have 24-17 blocked the subpoenas from applying to grand jury information.

"The way that the Trump Administration tried to spin the end of the Mueller investigation was a sign of its unscrupulousness and ineptitude", Boot declares.

The Times' report is the first public indication of tension between the attorney general and the special counsel's office over the conclusions about the Russian Federation investigation.

"When's the last time over this whole two year process that you remembered seeing reporting that sourced to Mueller's investigators", Maddow asked. "Bob Mueller runs a very tight ship, and that ship does not leak", David Kris, a former assistant attorney general who worked closely with Mueller, told Vox in late 2018.
