House Votes 420-0 for Public Release of Mueller Report

The House voted unanimously Thursday on a resolution that urges special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report to be made public.

If a full report isn't released, House Democrats have made it clear they will do whatever they can to get hold of it. Nadler has said he would subpoena the final report and invite - or even subpoena - Mueller to talk about it.

Mueller has been investigating since May 2017 whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow and whether the president has unlawfully tried to obstruct the probe. Justin Amash of Michigan, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Paul Gosar of Arizona.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a vote on the measure but was blocked by Sen.

"I am going to make as much information available as I can consistent with the rules and regulations that are part of the special counsel regulations", he told lawmakers.

The vote came as expectations rise that Mueller is near to bringing to a close a almost two-year-old investigation that has focused on whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with the Russians.

Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican member on the House Intelligence Committee who represents a swing district along the southern border, called on his colleagues to support "full transparency". On Thursday, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement that Andrew Weissmann, one of the most prominent prosecutors on the team, would be concluding his work "in the near future".

A resolution urging release passed on a 420-0 vote, with four lawmakers answering "present".

"[Barr] understands the questions and turmoil this has caused", Collins said. It also reported that a confidential report by Mueller's office is expected to be sent to the Justice Department soon.
