The Quick Facts

  • Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee approved subpoenas for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full Russia report.
  • Since the conclusion of the investigation, Democrats have been putting pressure on the Justice Department to release the full report to Congress without redactions. 
  • Barr has told the committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, that he is working to provide a redacted version which avoids disclosing any grand jury information or classified material.
  • Democrats have said they will not accept redactions and want access to all of the report’s information, even if some of it can’t be disclosed to the public.
  • The committee voted 24-17 along party lines to give chairman Nadler permission to issue a subpoena for the final report in its entirety, although Nadler has not yet confirmed whether or not he will send the subpoenas.

Food For Thought

Did the House Judiciary Committee overstep its bounds in granting Nadler the authority to subpoena the full Mueller report? Should Congress be able to see the report without redactions?
