House Endorses Making Mueller Report Public, In Unanimous 420-0 Vote


Home National Article


Though Mueller's office has said nothing publicly about the timing of a report, several prosecutors detailed to Mueller's team have left in recent months, suggesting that the investigation is winding down.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House voted unanimously Thursday for a resolution calling for any final report in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public, a symbolic action designed to pressure Attorney General William Barr into releasing as much information as possible when the probe is concluded.

The Democratic-backed resolution, which passed 420-0, comes as Mueller appears to be nearing an end to his investigation. Lawmakers in both parties have maintained there will have to be some sort of public resolution when the report is done — and privately hope that a report shows conclusions that are favorable to their own side.

Four Republicans voted present: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie.

The resolution is unlikely to be passed in the Senate, where Democratic Leader Charles Schumer tried to bring it up hours after House passage. He was rebuffed when Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham objected. But the House vote shows that lawmakers from both parties are eager to have a look at Mueller's findings after almost two years of speculation about what it might reveal.

3. 420-0 is quite compelling. Further, what is there to hide which will only lead to

anonymous leaks that will carry on right through the 2020 elections.

No, if I were Trump, I'd rather have it all thrown out there and dealt with in 2019 vs. 2020.

4. It is the same as it has always been if they committed a crime indict them.

If not do not try and try them in the court of public opinion.

Just like a prosecute going before a grand jury, nothing is mandated as far as presenting the side that demands the presumption of innocence or any information that may indicate or even prove the suspect is innocent. It is totally a one sided affair.

In other words if a man is accused of a crime and has an alibi but the prosecutor wants an indictment he is not required to present any information to a grand jury that may indicate the suspect is not guilty.

Neither is the investigator in this investigation. His entire mission is to get the indictment not to present a balanced and true case to the grand jury or to the DOJ in his report.

DOJ is now, and always has, operated under the rules that say if there is no indictment is not fair or honest to release only one side of the situation.

This is nothing new.

5. Vote and lobby all you want

It's not going to be public.

Really interesting interview with Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, who was on some news show bitching about how the entire report needs to be public.

So the anchor her asked her what about minor children if they were mentioned in the report, yes she conceded their names could be redacted.

How bout grand Jury testimony, yes that could be redacted,

Well should classified information be published? okay that can be redacted too.

And so on, you get the drift.

The only thing the public is going to see is a summary.

6. It's up to the AG to decide what gets released (not Congress) in their non-binding resolution.

I know that's hard for your far-left brain to fathom, but that's how it is.
