At least there are some things that the House of Representatives can agree on as a whole. A resolution has just gone through that garnered an unchallenged vote of 420-0.
The resolution was proposed by Democrats and demands that any final report on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian collusion in the 2016 elections be made available to the public.
While both Democrats and Republicans voted in favor of the resolution, what they hope to get out of it is markedly different. Democrats hope to find evidence that warrants bringing charges against President Trump, while Republicans hope to exonerate the president.
“This resolution is critical because of the many questions and criticisms of the investigation raised by the president and his administration,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. “It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency.”
The resolution would make Mueller’s report to Attorney General William Barr available to the public, only excluding classified materials while a full report would be given to Congress.
