US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public

US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public

Though Mueller's office has said nothing publicly about the timing of a report, several prosecutors detailed to Mueller's team have left in recent months, suggesting that the investigation is winding down.

The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a non-binding resolution on Thursday calling for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming report on the Russian Federation probe to be released to Congress and the public.

One of U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors will soon leave his post, a Mueller spokesman said on Thursday, confirming a move likely to add fuel to speculation that the Russian Federation investigation is nearing a conclusion. Eight members of Congress didn't vote and four Republicans voted "present", but no one voted against the non-binding resolution.

It's unclear if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will introduce the measure in his chamber.

Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican member on the House Intelligence Committee who represents a swing district along the southern border, called on his colleagues to support "full transparency".

Before joining Mueller's team in May 2017, Weissmann was best known for two assignments: the investigation of now-defunct energy company Enron and organized crime cases when he was a federal prosecutor in Brooklyn. He also met with Associated Press reporters on April 11, 2017 to discuss a case against Manafort.

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, said the end of Mueller's investigation is "long overdue" and that he must be transparent with the public.

When the investigation concludes, Mueller is required by regulation to submit a confidential report to Attorney General William Barr. He defended Barr, saying he "understands the questions, the turmoil this has caused".

Under the regulation governing Mr. Mueller's work, he must submit a report at the conclusion of his investigation to the USA attorney general explaining his decisions to pursue or decline prosecutions, including explanations of cases he investigated but he decided not to bring charges. Lindsey Graham of SC interjected and asked that the resolution be modified to call for Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Department of Justice's handling of the Clinton email investigation and other matters.

In February, six House Democratic committee chairs, led by Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of NY, made a similar request in a letter to Barr.
