Nancy Pelosi rejects Mueller report classified briefing

The person said Pelosi told Democrats "the takeaway" from the call is that the American people "deserve the truth".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has told House Democrats she would reject any classified briefing on special counsel Robert Mueller's report, saying the information must be provided to Congress in a way that allows lawmakers to discuss it publicly.

Nadler also noted Trump's attempt to end the investigation of Michael Flynn, his Russia-related firing of James Comey, his participation in covering up the goal of the Trump Tower meeting, and his relentless attacks on the investigation. Even if there's not a new smoking gun involving collusion with the Russians, Steyer said, there's already more than enough evidence of wrongdoing in other areas to justify removing Trump from office. They are mounting far-reaching congressional investigations into Trump's White House and business dealings, threatening to subpoena Mueller's testimony and promising an onslaught of high-drama hearings. "The American people have a right to know everything".

"Russia would say 'Oh, you know, it's politicized, it's like a witch hunt, we don't trust the Congress, which is politicized'".

He and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who appointed Mueller, were at the Justice Department again on Sunday.

The House of Representatives, newly controlled by the Democratic party following last year's mid-term elections, will also continue to investigate the Trump administration and could ask Mr Mueller to testify or instruct Mr Barr to provide relevant materials.

We do, however, know that United States attorneys' offices in Brooklyn, the District of Columbia and the Eastern District of Virginia have inquired about the Mueller report.

"We call on the Department of Justice to release the report swiftly, after minimally redacting any information that is properly withheld", the petition states. Earlier this week, Trump-continuing to profess is innocence and repeating his "no collusion" mantra-said the report should be made public. Congress requires the full report and the underlying documents so that the Committees can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues the Mueller report may raise.

President Donald Trump isn't keeping a low profile while he waits for the release of Robert Mueller's report.

Attorney General William Barr is reviewing the special counsel's report on the Russian Federation investigation at the Justice Department. "First of all, we don't know what indictments are forthcoming from other investigations that have been spun out by the special prosecutor to the Southern District of NY or the Eastern District of Virginia".

New York Democrat Jerry Nadler delivered opening remarks at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Google on December 11, 2018.

Trump took White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Emmet Flood with him to Florida. "Why there's been no indictments, we don't know", said Nadler.

For now, the report is accessible to only a handful of Justice Department officials while Attorney General William Barr prepared to release the "principal findings" soon.

Reporters staked out outside Mueller's office in recent days and others were at the Justice Department, watching for any signs. President Trump has not yet been personally briefed on the report, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
