Democrats Demand Full Mueller Report without Redactions, Threatening Subpoenas

If and when subpoenas would be issued to Barr, who said he plans to provide Congress and the American people with a redacted version of the almost 400-page Mueller report by "mid-April, if not sooner", will be up to Nadler.

In announcing the subpoena vote Monday, the committee said the timing would be at Nadler's discretion.

Barr said Mueller left unresolved the issue of whether Trump obstructed justice by undermining the investigation.

They were among those who got document requests from Mr. Nadler last month, and some of them have said they are cooperating.

For the same reason, the full Mueller report isn't likely to cut much ice in public opinion, either, whether it supports or undermines the positive claims Trump and his allies have been making with every breath.

Two U.S. Military Personnel Killed In Afghanistan
In a statement on March 22, the Resolute Support mission gave no further details and withheld the names of those killed . The 17-year conflict began as US forces launched a campaign to overthrow the Taliban in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Trump's belief that he's been "exonerated" by Mueller is only shared by people who already adore him.

"If he does not include grand jury information in the summary or report or redacted report or whatever he gives to Congress - that amounts to a cover-up", one Democratic staffer said.

Democrats say they want all of that information, even if some of it can't be disclosed to the public.

The House Oversight Committee said it would vote Tuesday to issue a subpoena to one of the former officials involved in fulfilling White House security clearances. If the administration decides to fight, lawmakers could ask federal courts to step in and enforce a subpoena - a fight that could, in theory, reach the Supreme Court.

President Trump has also supported the report's full release. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, backed by the majority of her caucus, has said she's not now supportive of impeachment.

The 400-year-old principle dictates that MPs can not vote on an identical matter twice in the same parliamentary session. He added: "As long as people think we can get to no deal, they will vote the deal down".

A week ago, Barr released a four-page summary of the Mueller report, telling top lawmakers that the prosecutor had concluded that while Russian Federation had interfered with the USA election, Trump and his campaign did not collude with Moscow to help him win.

On their own initiative, and with no apparent authority in the regulations, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that the evidence that the special counsel provided was not sufficient to establish that President Donald Trump committed an obstruction of justice offense.

There's also the possibility that Mueller may have uncovered information relevant to ongoing congressional investigations that fall outside the special counsel's mandate.

"And he's done everything he could to keep a cloud over the Trump presidency", Gowdy said, emphasizing that the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee asking for Schiff's departure were reasonable in arguing that they've "lost confidence" in Schiff's "ability to lead".

"These are just Democrats that want to try and demean this country and it shouldn't be allowed and I'll totally live by the attorney general", he said.
