House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer warn Attorney General William Barr against giving Donald Trump and the White House a “sneak preview” into the Mueller report.
“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,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.
“Attorney General Barr must not give President Trump, his lawyers or his staff any ‘sneak 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 those findings or evidence are 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 that investigation. The American people have a right to the truth. The watchword is transparency.”
Now we know why Trump was spinning out of control and attacking John McCain over the Christopher Steele dossier. He knew the Mueller report was going to drop and he just couldn’t help himself. He punched back at a dead guy and lost.
