House Passes Resolution to Publicly Release Mueller Report
By Luis Mercado 03/15/2019
The House of Representatives passed a resolution Thursday calling for special counsel Robert Mueller to release his report to the public once it is complete.
Mueller is investigating whether the Trump Campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
With four Republications voting present on the House floor, the final tally came to 420 members voting in favor of releasing the report with no one voting against it.
The resolution calls for Mueller to hand over his report to the attorney general, which would then be released in full to Congress and the public.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer brought the resolution on the Senate floor calling for the Senate to unanimously pass it.
However, hours after the resolution passed, South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham asked the resolution be amended to call for Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to look into the Department of Justice’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
President Donald Trump has railed against the Mueller investigation, calling it a “witch hunt” and a “hoax” and insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia.
