The chairs of six top committees in the US House released a statement on Friday night demanding that

Attorney General William Barr publicly release the "entire report" produced by the special counsel
Robert Mueller.

"This report is required under the Special Counsel regulations, and we expect the Attorney General to
release it without delay given the profound public interest in the full disclosure of information learned
by the Special Counsel," they wrote.

Mueller delivered his final report on the Russia investigation to the Justice Department on Friday
evening.

Reps. Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Richard Neal,


Jerrold Nadler, and Eliot Engel said in their letter that the Justice
Department should release the full report "without delay" because of
the "profound public interest" surrounding its contents.

They said that the Justice Department has an obligation to release any
evidence — either publicly or to Congress — that the president
engaged in criminal or other serious misconduct.

"Because the Justice Department maintains that a sitting president


cannot be indicted, to then withhold evidence of wrongdoing from
Congress because a sitting President cannot be charged is to convert
Justice Department policy into the means for a cover-up," they wrote.
"Anything less than full transparency would raise serious questions
about whether the Department of Justice policy is being used as a
pretext for a cover-up of misconduct."
