U.S. Rep. Pocan: Calls on Attorney General to release the full Mueller report

Contact: Ron Boehmer 202-225-2906

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) today released the following statement calling on Attorney General William Barr to release the full report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“Just a handful of individuals have read the Special Counsel’s report, meaning nearly everyone who is making conclusions regarding it, has not read it. Given Attorney General Barr’s role as a political appointee – as well as President Trump’s record of essentially firing Attorney General Sessions over fears that he would not protect him, we must demand transparency and read it ourselves to draw our own conclusions. The American people deserve the full truth behind the Special Counsel’s report and any attempts to censor it will be unacceptable. Attorney General Barr must release the full report and its findings to Congress and the American people.”

The Trump Administration not releasing the entire Special Counsel’s report is just the latest step in a long list of actions where the President has broken precedent and acted to serve his own interests in a way no other President has ever done. Ongoing Congressional oversight will continue in these and other areas. This list includes:

  • Declaring a national emergency – when one doesn’t exist – for border wall funding
  • Refusing to divest from his businesses, a possible violation of the Emoluments Clause
  • Refusing to release his personal and business tax returns
  • Engaging in a cover-up scheme to pay off an adult film star
  • Pushing for his son-in-law Jared Kushner to receive a security clearance
