Nadler wants the full Mueller report. What happens if Barr says no?

Smear Machine Jerry Nadler Pushes to Release Confidential Grand Jury Material in Mueller Report

Instead, the attorney general gave Congress a four-page summary on March 24 in which he said that Mueller did not establish conspiracy between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning authorized Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) (shown above right) to issue a subpoena for the full report by special counsel Robert Mueller - as well as all of the underlying evidence and materials that Mueller (above left) collected during his almost two-year investigation, Politico and other outlets reported.

In his letter of "principal conclusions" two weeks ago, Barr indicated that Mueller did find at least some evidence suggesting Trump tried to obstruct the federal probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The Department of Justice was reportedly wary of including those summaries, two government officials told the Times, because they believed the special counsel members' summaries contained sensitive information within them that couldn't be made public. In his letter to Congress, Barr said he and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, had determined there was insufficient evidence to establish the president committed that offense.

"The subpoena for the Mueller report and its underlying evidence commands the attorney general to do what the unthinkable is", said committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.).

So cue up the Sarah McLachlan and let's see what we'll remember from the league that lasted all of eight weeks of game play. The league was seen as the alternative to the NFL and started on February 9 which was just six days after Super Bowl XLIII.

The committee voted 24-17 to give Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler permission to issue subpoenas to the Justice Department for the final report, including its exhibits and any underlying evidence or materials prepared for Mr Mueller's investigation.

Barr said he was continuing to work with Mueller's office on redactions to the report so that it could be released to Congress and the public.

The Justice Department on Thursday defended Attorney General Bill Barr's handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report but without directly addressing news reports that Mueller's investigators are upset over what Barr has chosen to keep secret for now.

Those interviewed by the Times declined to fully explain why the Mueller investigators believe their findings were more damaging to Trump than Barr disclosed. They argue that he's pressing for the full report before he's even seen the redacted version, and point to the restrictions that Attorney General Barr legally faces in sending the report to Congress. Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec disputed this claim in a statement that was included in the Post's article, but not the Times'. Barr has also offered to testify shortly after the report is released. "Bob Mueller runs a very tight ship, and that ship does not leak", David Kris, a former assistant attorney general who worked closely with Mueller, told Vox in late 2018. "They're just dragging their feet and slow rolling this thing so that Donald Trump can go around the country saying he was exonerated based on this ridiculous four-page letter that Barr issued", Akerman said. "R. Crim. P.6 (e)' - a law that protects confidential grand jury information - and therefore could not be publicly released", she wrote.

The special counsel's office also never asked Barr to release the summaries, the Times reported. That's not entirely correct, some investigators, dismissed by Trump supporters as "disgruntled" Democrat-supporting leakers, are telling intermediaries who are relaying it to the media.
