Lawmakers press for a full Russia probe report from Mueller
WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers appear increasingly nervous that Congress and the public won’t see a full report when special counsel Robert Mueller completes his Russia investigation.
Republicans and Democrats both say they support public disclosure of Mueller’s findings. But it’s unclear exactly what document will be produced at the end of the probe into possible coordination between Trump associates and Russia.
Democrats have pressured Trump’s attorney general nominee, William Barr, on how he will handle Mueller’s findings. House Republican leaders said Tuesday they would support releasing something to the public and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would like any report from Mueller to be transparent.
The increased attention on a possible Mueller report comes after Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said the investigation is “close to being completed.”
