The House of Representatives have voted overwhelmingly to demand the full Mueller report from the Department of Justice be released to Congress.
House Republicans united with their Democratic counterparts to pass a resolution demanding that the Department of Justice release to Congress, and then to the public the full report of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
Mueller is reportedly close to completing a nearly two-year probe into Russian interference during the 2016 election, and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
The non-binding resolution, offered by House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and several other Democratic chairs, passed 420-0 on Thursday.
Multiple Republican ranking members on various committees said Thursday’s resolution was a waste of time, but they voted for it anyway on substance.
Four Republicans voted present, including Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies in the House.
The overwhelming bipartisan support for the bill signals that the House GOP is willing to help make available to the public a report that many Democrats believe could contain damaging information about Trump, his administration and how he ran his 2016 presidential campaign.
