House Democrats Move to Subpoena Mueller Report

House Democrats Move to Subpoena Mueller Report”

Mr. Nadler said that wasn't acceptable.

Barr wrote in his four-page summary of Mueller's principal conclusions that, after consulting with Justice Department officials and reviewing the matter, he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded the evidence was "not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense".

On the Mueller report, Democrats in the House have said they won't accept a redacted version or a classified briefing, arguing that they don't want a "sanitized" version of what Mueller worked on for almost two years.

Barr's summary of the report concluded that the investigation did not establish that Trump or his campaign associates colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election.

Barr has said that anything related to grand jury testimony, ongoing investigations, USA intelligence, or the reputation of peripheral third parties will be redacted.

The House Judiciary Committee had called for full disclosure by Tuesday of the almost 400-page report and its underlying evidence.

Former Congressman and House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy says he wouldn't be surprised if intelligence agencies stop providing California Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff with access to intelligence briefings over his constant leaking and unfounded attacks against Donald Trump.

"It should have everything that Bill Barr promised and I believe it will", he said.

He expects to make the report public by mid April, and said it will not be previewed by the White House before it is released. They have given Barr until Tuesday, April 2, to produce it. The president has stated publicly that he wants the full report released, as he believes it would exonerate him of all allegations made during the Russiagate "witch hunt" against him and his administration. "To this end, I have asked the Committee to authorize me to issue subpoenas, if necessary, to compel the production of documents and testimony".

The House Judiciary Committee will also vote to issue subpoenas to a group of former Trump White House advisers, including strategist Steve Bannon, communications director Hope Hicks, chief of staff Reince Preibus and White House counsel Don McGahn.

The five officials were likely key witnesses during Mueller's investigation of whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to thwart the prosecutor's 22-month probe.

According to a Rasmussen poll of 1,000 respondents done March 25-26, 61 percent said congressional Democrats should move on to other issues, while 29 percent said they should keep investigating.

"I am particularly concerned about reports that documents relevant to the special counsel investigation were sent outside the White House, waving applicable privileges", the chairman said in a statement.
