Had to be done.

The House voted overwhelmingly and in bipartisan fashion to urge the Justice Department to publicly release the entirety of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 election, once completed.

The move is an attempt to “send a clear signal both to the American people and the Department of Justice” that lawmakers expect to see the full account of Mueller’s work, according to the House Judiciary Committee’s chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).

The final vote count was 420 in favor, with no one voting no. Four lawmakers voted “present.”

This vote cannot force Attorney General Bill Barr to release the report in full, but it does add more political pressure on him to do so. 

Besides if he fails to release it that just means that the House Dems will call Robert Mueller in to testify and release the report as support of that testimony. 

One way or the other, we are going to see it.
