House to Likely Pass Bill Forcing Public Release of Mueller Report Today

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election arrives on Capitol Hill for a closed door meeting before the Senate Judiciary Committee in this

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".

One of Robert Mueller's "killers" is leaving the team now that Paul Manafort has been sentenced, sending a strong signal the special counsel probe may be nearing an end.

The resolution calls for whatever report Mueller gives the attorney general to be publicly released in full, with the exception of classified or grand jury information.

Nadler and other House Democrats vowed to subpoena the full report if Barr only provides them with minimal details.

Additionally, it is still uncertain whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will bring the resolution to the Senate floor for a vote.

But the effort did not move forward after Republican Sen.

Six committee chairs in the Democratic-controlled House sent Barr a letter on February 22, urging him to make Mueller's report public "to the maximum extent permitted by law".

Google Makes Hardware a Second-Class Citizen, Several Devices Now in Doubt
Rumors of a Pixelbook 2 have been swirling since the company's hardware event last October though it has yet to be released. Google's Hardware division is run by Rick Osterloh and is expected to launch a game streaming console later this month.

Graham later defended his request, telling CNN, "I want everything looked at, not just Mueller". But nobody has lifted a finger to call for an investigation into the other side of the story. Republicans eager to paint the Mueller team as biased against Trump have seized on a January 2017 email Weissmann wrote complimenting former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, an Obama administration holdover, for refusing to have the Justice Department defend the Trump administration's travel ban.

Weissmann's departure is the clearest sign yet that Mueller's investigation is wrapping up. Trump has repeatedly described the investigation as a "witch hunt" and repeatedly denied that he or his 2016 campaign conspired or colluded with the Russian election interference. "All signs right now point to Mueller finding no collusion with Russian Federation, at least not by Trump, in the final 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.

Once the investigation concludes, Mueller will submit a written report to Barr, who will then need to brief Congress. That report must explain why the special counsel chose to either pursue or decline prosecutions. He added that "full transparency is the only way to prevent future innuendo".

Justice Department regulations governing special counsels give Barr latitude in deciding how much of the report to make public. Mr. Barr can release the report publicly if he decides it is in the public interest.

If Mueller alleges obstruction of justice but finds no collusion, a Democrat with a copy of the report will obviously whisper to the media about the former, not the latter.

"We will obviously subpoena the report".
