By Townhall. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Sunday reiterated one important fact: Democrats in the House of Representatives are prepared to subpoena Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney General William Barr in order to obtain a full copy of the Mueller report. Nadler and his colleagues from five other committees sent a letter on Friday saying they expected “full transparency.”
But Nadler took the sentiment a step further, saying he’s prepared to go to the Supreme Court of the United States, if he must, in order for the Muller report to be made public.
“We’ll try to negotiate. We’ll try everything else first, but if we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information,” Nadler told CNN’s Dana Bash.
“And you’re going to be willing to take that all the way to the Supreme Court if you have to?” Bash asked.
“Absolutely,” Nadler replied without hesitation. (Read more from “Dem Has a Secret Weapon for Obtaining the Full Mueller Report” HERE)
Nadler Vows to Subpoena, Take Fight to Supreme Court to Get Full Mueller Report
By The Washington Examiner. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., vowed to take the fight over getting special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report released to the public all the way to the Supreme Court.
In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Nadler said House Democrats are poised to issue subpoenas and would “absolutely” take the matter to the high court if necessary.
“We’ll try to negotiate. We’ll try everything else first, but if we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information,” Nadler said.
When asked how long he would give the Justice Department to turn over the full report, Nadler said “it won’t be months.”
Nadler said he is inclined to accept at face value Attorney General William Barr’s characterization of the report, which is expected to be given to Congress in the form of a summary as early as Sunday. However, Nadler said the summary isn’t nearly as important as getting the full report out because different people can interpret findings and data differently.
