House Passes Resolution To Make Mueller Report Public

House poised to pass measure calling for DOJ to publicly release Mueller's report

House votes to release Robert Mueller's Russia report

It called for any report Mueller sends to Barr to be released publicly - except for any classified material.

The House voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to pass a measure calling for the Justice Department to release special counsel Robert Mueller's report to the public, an effort to increase pressure on the agency ahead of the expected conclusion of the probe into Russian meddling into the 2016 election.

While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell could refuse to bring the bill to a vote, and Trump could always veto it, what this bill will do is at least force multiple Republicans go on record when the majority of both Democrats and Republicans want a full disclosure of Mueller's findings, according to recent polls.

It also calls for the full report to be released to Congress.

So, don't get your hopes up on seeing the recording-artist on SmackDown Live or any WWE programming in the near future. Rumours of a Slim Shady appearance in WWE did the rounds all the way back in 2008, but nothing ever came of it.

Justice Department regulations governing special counsels give Barr latitude in deciding how much of the report to make public. Andrew Weissmann, a top prosecutor on Mueller's probe, is reportedly departing in the latest sign that the investigation is wrapping up.

Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican member on the House Intelligence Committee who represents a swing district along the southern border, called on his colleagues to support "full transparency". Trump has repeatedly described the investigation as a "witch hunt".

Four Republicans voted present: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie.

If a full report isn't released, House Democrats have made it clear they will do whatever they can to get hold of it. Nadler has said he would subpoena the final report and invite - or even subpoena - Mueller to talk about it.

Green expressed frustration at "status quo" voices who admit Trump is unfit to serve as president but refuse to take action. It would then lead to an impeachment trial in the Senate, where a two-thirds majority would be required.

"[Barr] understands the questions and turmoil this has caused", Collins said.

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". "The American people need to know as much as they can and see as much as they can".

Graham, a Trump ally, blocked the action unless Democrats backed a move they oppose: the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Democratic former President Barack Obama's administration's handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state and FBI surveillance of a Trump campaign official.

The Mueller investigation so far has resulted in criminal charges against 34 individuals and three companies, seven guilty pleas and one conviction following a jury trial.
