US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public

The US House of Representatives has voted unanimously to demand that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s full report on his Russian election meddling investigation be made public.

The House voted 420-0 on the non-binding resolution, signaling strong opposition to any move that US President Donald Trump and his Attorney General Bill Barr might make to restrict access by Congress or the public to Mueller’s findings.

While Republicans condemned the resolution as a political move, ultimately 190 voted in favor.

The vote comes as expectations rise that Mueller is near to bringing to a close a nearly two-year-old investigation that has focused on whether Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Russians.

Democrats speculate that the report might have enough evidence to support an impeachment effort against the president.
