Call Of The Day - Ensure The Public Release Of The Mueller Report

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report to Attorney General William Barr, ending the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. It is now up to Barr to decide how much information from the report to release. Demand the report be made public so the American people can see the full scope of the investigation and its findings.

There is understandable concern that the Trump administration will ensure that Mueller’s report is heavily censored or not made public at all. Confounding the issue is Trump’s Attorney General William Barr, has indicated he might not make the report public, saying he would “provide as much transparency as I can consistent with the law.”

In order to ensure public release of this critical information, both the Senate and the House introduced legislation that would require that the findings of the Mueller investigation be made fully available to both Congress and the public. Members of Congress need to hear from their constituents that the American people have a right to know, and want to know, what the Mueller investigation has uncovered about Russian interference in the 2016 election.
