Democrats GO NUCLEAR in Mueller Report Release Ruckus

Without transparency, there can be no trust in the government, but this entire plan stinks of partisan politics.

Attorney General Bill Barr has stated that the Department of Justice could release a redacted version of the Mueller report as soon as “mid-April”, but democrats aren’t having it.

As the President, Barr, and the American people have indicated, transparency in the matter of the Mueller report will be of the utmost importance.  This long and arduous investigation, complete with its bizarre inconclusiveness, has allowed for any number of imaginative worries to manifest themselves in Congress, the media, and the public perception surrounding the case.

In fact, a number of lawmakers have openly questioned the abilities and tendencies of the Attorney General in the process, while others are working to block the release of the un-redacted report.

Predictably, these opinions have fallen down partisan lines despite the aforementioned eagerness of the President himself to make the report public.

The democrats are now prepared for the “nuclear” option, and are currently poised to unleash a flurry of subpoenas to get what they want.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler will authorize a subpoena this week to obtain the full, unredacted report from special counsel Robert Mueller, teeing up a showdown between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration over the nearly 400-page report.

Nadler said Monday that he had scheduled a markup on Wednesday to authorize a subpoena for the Mueller report, as well as the special counsel’s underlying evidence. The markup would give the New York Democrat the green light to subpoena the report, though Nadler has not said whether he would do so before Attorney General William Barr releases a redacted version publicly, which he is expected to do later this month.
The subpoenas won’t end at the report, however.
The House Judiciary Committee will also vote to authorize subpoenas for five former White House staffers — Don McGahn, Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Reince Priebus and Ann Donaldson — whom Nadler says may have received documents from the White House relevant to the special counsel’s probe and the committee’s investigation that would waive executive privilege.
Transparency is the key to a functioning republic, especially in matters such as this, but there are concerns over the security and privacy of those named in the report who’ve not been charged with a crime.
While the subpoenas certainly wouldn’t make the Mueller report public by default, there are obvious security concerns over the report’s further distribution, especially in a world increasingly populated by whistleblowers, leakers, and websites such as Wikileaks.
