Robert Mueller report: Democrats say they are prepared to battle for access to full contents of Trump-Russia probe

Robert Mueller report: Democrats say they are prepared to battle for access to full contents of Trump-Russia probeHouse Democrats, concerned president Donald Trump‘s attorney general may withhold evidence of wrongdoing uncovered by special counsel Robert Mueller, are preparing for potential battle over access to the full contents of Mr Mueller’s newly completed report, vowing to pursue it and any underlying investigative materials in court if necessary. “We will fight” for the full report, said representative Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, emphasising that Democrats expect complete transparency from Mr Mueller and the Justice Department, save for redactions of classified information that could jeopardise sensitive law enforcement methods if disclosed publicly. Attorney general William Barr informed the heads of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees in a letter on Friday he might be able to advise them of Mr Mueller’s “principal conclusions as soon as this weekend”.
