House to Likely Pass Bill Forcing Public Release of Mueller Report Today

A bid by the Senate's top Democrat, Chuck Schumer, to have the resolution approved by voice vote after the House's action was thwarted by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.

For Democrats, however, passing the resolution was an important gesture, as during his confirmation hearing, Barr refused to pledge to release the full report to the public.

The resolution also calls for the report to be sent to Congress.

As such, it is not clear if the Republican leader of the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, will put the resolution on the Senate floor for a vote.

As it happens, the SEC watches 60 Minutes , and that interview was cited in the agency's filing. He added that while he respects the justice system, he does not respect the SEC.

At least one Republican is siding with Democrats.

When the investigation concludes, Mueller is required by regulation to submit a confidential report to Attorney General William Barr. Nevertheless, the Democrats who introduced the resolution hope it will serve to pressure Barr.

Weissmann has been a pivotal member of Mueller's team, which has brought charges against 34 people and three companies during a 22-month-old investigation into whether Trump's 2016 campaign conspired with Russian Federation and whether the Republican president unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe. Those regulations require only that the report explain the decisions to pursue or to decline prosecutions, which could be as simple as a bullet point list or as fulsome as a report running hundreds of pages. A CNN poll released last month found that support for a public release stands at 80% among Republicans and those who approve of the way the President is handling his job, and at 92% among Democrats and those who disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job.

Manafort has been sentenced to about 7 1/2 years in federal prison after he was convicted in two cases that came out of the Mueller investigation, and shortly after he learned his fate the Manhattan district attorney indicted him on 16 pardon-proof counts related to real estate fraud.

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.

"Transparency is fundamental to the special counsel's process, especially when dealing with matters of national security involving the president", said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, whose committee will oversee any impeachment motion. He must then notify Congress, but has not indicated to what extent he intends to share the information with lawmakers or the public.

Gidley said he hadn't spoken with Trump about whether the report should be made public. "We will take it to court if necessary", House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an interview last month.

"I don't know what, at the end of the day, what will be releasable".
