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.

    And we should see it, besides if little donnie didn’t do anything dirty then he should want it made public, right?

    Back in January Wired took a look at “stochastic terrorism,” which they define as,
    “Acts of violence by random extremists, triggered by political demagoguery.”

    Well, that’s half of Congress. I wonder what the Senate will do? The Republicans in the Senate seem to be a very cowardly bunch or maybe they’re more terrified of the Great Turtle’s ire, to say nothing of his owner.

    Except they have no teeth. This is not in their power.

    Not to fear. When that report comes out, no matter what the DOJ does, it is going to leak and leak big. It will make the Pentagon Papers look like post it notes.
