One day after the Department of Justice announced that Mueller had handed over his report to Attorney General William Barr, Democrat leaders circulated hearings to their members, arguing that "the White House should not interfere with the publication of the report."
The discussions detail why they believe there is a precedent that supports the publication of a report. This points to the recruitment of a special lawyer in 1999 to investigate the 1993 incident in Waco, Texas. They also point to a precedent in which the Department of Justice delivered 880,000 pages of internal material as part of the GOP probe to the FBI's Hillary Clinton investigation last year, as well as the department that kept records of Hill via the Watergate probe. 1
Democrats argued that the public will was overwhelmingly on their side for full transparency and pointed to public opinion polls to explain their case.
"Right now we want to know the truth, want the facts and want to preside the lawyers and committee members can take a look at this, "said Nancy Pelosi, the spokeswoman for the house, according to a caller.
Six Committee Chairmen All Conducting Trump Administration, White House and United Kingdom Congressional Trump's Trump business affairs all spoke briefly with House Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, according to the source.
Democrats' chairpersons reiterated their argument that the publication of both the report and the underlying evidence was paramount, and that it was referred to the Justice Department congress with investigative documents as part of Republican probes in the last Congress.
The call lasted about 35 minutes and more than 120 lawmakers attended, the person said.
