US House wants Mueller report made public

Posted March 17, 2019

During his confirmation hearing in the Senate this year, Mr. Barr said he wanted to be as transparent as possible, but would not commit to making the entire report public. But they were unwilling to stand in its way.

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. But none of the indictments have been for conspiracy between Trump allies and Russians. "Let's bring this chapter to a close".

Four members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, a group strongly allied with Trump, were the lawmakers who voted "present". Matt Gaetz of Florida and Paul Gosar of Arizona.

The resolution, introduced last week by the heads of six House oversight committees that are investigating Trump, calls on Barr to make public everything in the Mueller report that is not expressly prohibited by law and to provide the entire document to Congress.

The Justice Department has given signals in recent weeks that after 22 months, Mueller is nearing completion of his work. On Thursday, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement that Andrew Weissmann, one of the most prominent prosecutors on the team, would be concluding his work "in the near future".

Mueller has not said when he will complete the report and it remains to be determined what will be published and how much of it will be released to the public. 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.

At the same time, an overwhelming majority of Americans believe there should be a public report on what Mueller finds. House Democrats have previously indicated they would be willing to use their congressional subpoena power if Barr withholds substantial information from the report.

Trump wants spending cuts and $8.6bn for his border wall
With Democrats controlling the House of Representatives, Trump's new wall-funding request appears to stand little chance. Mick Mulvaney, Trump's budget director and acting chief of staff, has previously slammed the OCO as a "slush fund".

Democrats also fear that the Justice Department could combine its policies against indicting a sitting president and against disclosing negative information on an investigative target who was not indicted to justify keeping secret all the information collected about Trump.

At least one Republican is siding with Democrats.

Justice Department rules require Mueller to submit a final, confidential report to Barr outlining why he charged some people and not others.

"Those are also going to be things that we are going to have to litigate", Collins said.

Bennett reunion with Patriots possible
Martellus is no stranger to the Patriots, as he won a Super Bowl with them in his only full season with the team (2016). The problem is, of course, Bennett was their best defensive end last season and his production won't be easy to match.
