Special Counsel Robert Mueller finished and submitted his investigative report to Attorney General William Barr this Friday at 5:15 pm, ending his nearly two-year investigation that has loomed over the Trump presidency, likely setting up on the following days a political battle over what he has found."
Washington DC, March 22 (DP.net).– With nearly 70% of Americans wanting the Mueller report released to the public, many people and organizations are asking the American people to send a loud and clear message to the Justice Department that this historic report should be made available to all in its full text. They argue that Americans deserve to know the full truth about these grave investigative issues concerning the US President and other members of the US government, whether the truth is good, bad, or ugly so that liberty and justice are preserved for all.
A Department of Justice official declared off the record and at first sight that no further indictments are recommended. In addition, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) reacted to the news arguing that if special counsel Robert Mueller's work concludes without a single collusion-related indictment, it will show there was no collusion between President Trump's campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
On the other hand, Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), a Democratic presidential candidate, called for Attorney General William Barr to testify before Congress about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation after Mueller submitted his report to Barr earlier in the day.
However, it remains to be seen what of the report will become public. Barr told lawmakers earlier this year that he would release as much information from the final Mueller report as is legally possible, and said in a recent letter to House and Senate Judiciary committee leadership: "I remain committed to as much transparency as possible, and I will keep you informed as to the status of my review."
On her part, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders declared: "The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course. The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel’s report."
