The chairs of five House committees, all Democrats, are demanding that U.S. Attorney General William Barr cancel his press conference scheduled for Thursday on the Mueller report. . .
“The Attorney General should cancel the press conference and provide the full report to Congress, as we have requested,” they continued. “With the Special Counsel’s fact-gathering work concluded, it is now Congress’ responsibility to assess the findings and evidence and proceed accordingly.”
Democratic pundits have been angrily denouncing the plan from Barr to give a media briefing about a document that has not been released yet. . .
Barr has been criticizing since releasing a summary of the Mueller report that said it did not exonerate the president but could not find sufficient evidence to support claims of collusion with the Russian government in the 2016 election. . .
Nadler had tweeted his misgivings about Barr’s plans earlier on Wednesday.
I’m deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release. Now, DOJ is informing us we will not receive the report until around 11/12 tomorrow afternoon — AFTER Barr’s press conference. This is wrong. #ReleaseTheReport https://t.co/bR50HhGJ0i
