Six Democratic committee chairs in the House sent a three-page letter to Attorney General William Barr on Monday requesting that he hand over the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to Congress by April 2.
The lawmakers wrote that Barr’s summary of the Mueller report “is not sufficient for Congress.”
“We look forward to receiving the report in full no later than April 2, and to begin receiving the underlying evidence and documents that same day,” the letter said.
The lawmakers argued that providing the report “in complete and unredacted form,” along with the underlying evidence and materials, would be fully consistent with the Department of Justice’s practice and precedent with Congress.
“To the extent that you believe applicable law limits your ability to comply, we urge you to begin the process of consultation with us immediately in order to establish shared parameters for resolving those issues without delay,” they wrote.
The letter was signed by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., and House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.
