Democrats on Capitol Hill are preparing to bring Attorney General William Barr in front of Congress to testify about the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election, as they continue to push for the full public release of Mueller’s report.
They have raised questions about Mueller’s decision not to exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice, and Barr’s determination that a case wasn’t warranted, outlined in a letter to lawmakers on Sunday summarizing Mueller’s findings.
The report goes on to state the following:
Nadler said he plans to ask Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about his letter and Mueller’s investigation, and threatened to subpoena him and the Mueller report for public release. His staff has already been in touch with the Justice Department on setting up Barr’s testimony, according to a congressional aide.
According to the report, while House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Cali) said Sunday that the “case is closed” on the matters investigated by Mueller after the findings were revealed, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Cali) disagreed.
“This is just the beginning,” Swalwell, a member of the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, told ABC. “It’s case closed criminally but not case closed as to whether the president committed a high crime or misdemeanor.”
