Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris calls for Attorney General William Barr to publicly testify under about about the Mueller report, which was delivered to him on Friday afternoon.
Harris, who has been rising in recent polls, tweeted: “Americans deserve to know the truth now that the Mueller report is complete. The report must be released immediately and AG Barr must publicly testify under oath about the investigation’s findings. We need total transparency here.”

“A declassified report must be made public immediately and Attorney General Barr must publicly testify under oath about the investigation and its findings, and provide all underlying materials to the appropriate Congressional committees,” Harris said in a statement.
Harris isn’t the only one warning Barr and the White House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement warning Barr not to give a “sneak preview” of the Mueller report to Donald Trump, his lawyers or White House staff. It’s about to be lit….stay tuned.
Former Obama attorney general Eric Holder tweeted: “If the Mueller Report contains evidence about impeachable conduct/offenses that, at a minimum, must be shared with Congress. It would be irresponsible for DOJ to hold on to this kind of information — for any reason. No privilege claim would be valid.”

The Mueller report is owed to the American people. It should be made public without any changes. #MuellerReport

Mueller’s investigation began as a counterintelligence inquiry into whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were compromised by a foreign power.
By law, that evidence he uncovered must be shared with our Committee.
And his report must also be made public. Now. pic.twitter.com/AAMsFjhZM7

The Mueller report has been released to Attorney General Barr. We've been waiting for two years! Barr has the discretion about what he releases to the public. Let's tweet, tweet, tweet and demand that the entire report be released! We deserve nothing less!

Attorney General Barr must make the #Mueller report public and provide all underlying documents to Congress without delay. Transparency is the foundation of our democracy. The American people have a right to know the truth.

The White House absolutely must not deter and/or prohibit Congress or the American people from seeing the full #MuellerReport. Claims of executive privilege must be very carefully exercised and reviewed by Congress. The American people demand nothing less. #ReleaseTheReport

The Trump Administration shouldn’t get to lock up Robert Mueller’s report and throw away the key. Taxpayers funded this investigation, and we deserve to know the outcome. Let me know if you agree: https://t.co/nYgagcL429
