House Dems to bring resolution next week to make Mueller report public

The House Rules Committee will consider the resolution on Monday, bypassing the House Judiciary Committee and setting up a quick vote on the floor. The measure is nonbinding but it reflects Democrats’ efforts to encourage the Justice Department to disclose Mueller’s highly anticipated findings to the public in some form.

Democrats were alarmed when Attorney General William Barr, during his Senate confirmation hearings, would not commit to making Mueller’s full report public. They have since wrestled with the best way to ensure that the special counsel’s findings are made available to the public, with appropriate redactions for classified information and grand jury material.
