Democrats push for Mueller report to Congress by next week, Republicans resist

Special Counsel Robert Mueller walks in Washington

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham promised to "unpack the other side of the story" of the Russian Federation investigation.

According to the Committee Chairmen, Barr's summary is "not sufficient for Congress, as a coequal branch of government, to perform this critical work". But the probe left unresolved the question of whether Trump engaged in obstruction of justice.

This "witch hunt", as the President has referred to it over 100 times on Twitter, involved 19 lawyers, 40 Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and professional staff, 2,800 subpoenas, almost 500 search warrants, 13 requests to foreign governments, and interviews of over 500 witnesses.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, who is considering a run for president, spoke about the report on MSNBC: "I think the American people deserve to see the report itself, not simply the Attorney General's summary of it".

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker tweeted: "The American public deserves the full report and findings from the Mueller investigation immediately-not just the in-house summary from a Trump Administration official".

They're purposely seeking wrongdoing.even if there wasn't any.

Those probes are aimed in part at undermining President Donald Trump going into the 2020 presidential race, just as Republicans sought to undermine Hillary Clinton through a number of congressional investigations before the 2016 elections.

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted 420-0 in favor of making the report public, with no Republican opposition.

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert said Monday night that President Donald Trump "only has himself to blame" for being subjected to a two-year investigation with a false premise.

Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, a member of Democratic leadership, said he has been encouraging colleagues to talk about those policy issues like health care and infrastructure.

Democratic lawmakers were likely to face a protracted legal battle that will turn on Trump's right to keep communications with his advisers private, legal and political experts said. "Still disappointing, but at least they're all in jail". But asked on Monday if Mr Mueller had acted honourably, Mr Trump said: "Yes". There's really no evidence of working with Russian Federation. "Today, they were proven totally wrong and President Trump has been completely exonerated", read the talking points from the RNC, which were obtained by TIME. I'm glad that this report clears the air on this issue, and I hope that it will allow us to move past the distraction caused by accusations of collusion.

The report also claims that Trump has privately complained that former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been treated very unfairly, although he has not discussed giving him a presidential pardon yet.
