Pelosi and Schumer Urge Full Release of Mueller Report; Demand AG Barr Not Give Trump or Lawyers ‘Sneak Preview’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued a statement Friday afternoon urging the full release of the Mueller report and demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr to give President Trump or his lawyers a “sneak preview” of the report.

The Pelosi-Schumer statement follows other demands by Democrats for the immediate release of the report.

“Now that Special Counsel Mueller has submitted his report to the Attorney General, it is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation and findings to Congress.  Attorney General Barr must not give President Trump, his lawyers or his staff any ‘sneak preview’ of Special Counsel Mueller’s findings or evidence, and the White House must not be allowed to interfere in decisions about what parts of those findings or evidence are made public.

 

“The Special Counsel’s investigation focused on questions that go to the integrity of our democracy itself: whether foreign powers corruptly interfered in our elections, and whether unlawful means were used to hinder that investigation.  The American people have a right to the truth.  The watchword is transparency.”
