Leaders in Congress want to make it clear, they expect Robert Mueller’s report to be public. And today the chairs of six Congressional committees made it official by introducing a resolution.

 A joint statement from the committee chairs read:

“Introduction of this Resolution is consistent with the intent of the Special Counsel Regulations, and most importantly, the interests of the American public.  This transparency is a fundamental principle necessary to ensure that government remains accountable to the people.  

As the Department of Justice made clear over the last two years, DOJ policy permits disclosure of investigative materials when it serves the public interest, even as they pertain to ‘uncharged third parties.’ The public is clearly served by transparency with respect to any investigation that could implicate or exonerate the President and his campaign.  We urge our colleagues on both sides of the aisle to join us in supporting this common sense resolution.”

The chairs also sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr to let him know their expectations.

The resolution is expected to go up for a vote next week. It could very well pass the House, but making its way through the Senate could prove difficult.
