Schumer: Attorney General Barr Must Make Full Mueller Report Public


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made a brief statement Friday afternoon in response to the news that special counsel Robert Mueller had completed his investigation into potential Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER: 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 speak 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 the findings or evidence should be 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 the investigation.

The American people have the right to the truth. The watchword is transparency.

In conclusion, the president himself has called without qualification for the report to be made public. There is no reason on God's green Earth why Attorney General Barr should do any less.
