House Votes for Russia Investigation Final Report Be Public

The House voted unanimously Thursday for a resolution calling for any final report in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to be made public, a symbolic action created to pressure Attorney General William Barr into releasing as much information as possible when the probe is concluded.

Justice Department regulations governing special counsels give Barr latitude in deciding how much of the report to make public.

As such, it is not clear if the Republican leader of the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, will put the resolution on the Senate floor for a vote.

Representative Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and author of the resolution, said on the House floor: "It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency at a time when the president has publicly attacked the Russian Federation investigation more than 1,100 times and counting". They do not require release of the report but also do not prevent Barr from giving the entire document to Congress. Texas congressman Will Hurd, a member of the House intelligence committee, said he believes the resolution should have been even broader.

"Among other things, the president has repeatedly referred to the investigation as a witch hunt and called it a hoax, rigged, and a scam", he continued.

The final vote tally was 420 members voting in favor, no members voting against, and four members (Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Thomas Massie, R-Ky. and Paul Gosar, R- Ariz.) voting "present".

Rep. Douglas Collins, ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, said the resolution was a restatement of Barr saying he wants to be "transparent with Congress and the public consistent with the rules and the law".

"[Barr] understands the questions and turmoil this has caused", Collins said.

During his confirmation process, Barr told Congress that he would permit Mueller to complete his work, and that his goal would be to provide "as much transparency" as he could within the limits of the law.

Unless Weissmann is leaving for unspecified personal reasons, his departure signals Mueller has likely completed all of the inquiry's major investigative steps, although there could still be additional indictments, said Barbara McQuade, a former senior federal prosecutor in MI.

Graham, a Trump ally, blocked the action unless Democrats backed a move they oppose: the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Democratic former President Barack Obama's administration's handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state and FBI surveillance of a Trump campaign official. The network news noted Democratic lawmakers say they will demand the full release of the report. A CNN poll released last month found that support for a public release stands at 80% among Republicans and those who approve of the way the President is handling his job, and at 92% among Democrats and those who disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job.
