Barr has also responded to Democrat demands that the full Mueller report be released Tuesday by indicating that the Democrats' timeline is nonsensical, and based on assumptions about the report.
The decision comes after Barr said Friday that he would provide a redacted version of the almost 400-page report to Congress in mid-April, "if not sooner", rejecting a Tuesday deadline set by the Democrats.
However, Nadler is now calling for the release of the full Mueller report even after no collusion was found. The panel will vote on subpoenas for former White House strategist Stephen Bannon, communications director Hope Hicks, White House counsel Donald McGahn, counsel Ann Donaldson and former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. Democrats have said they will not accept redactions and will nearly certainly be unhappy with the amount of information provided by Barr when the department releases the report in the coming weeks.
Russiagate's most faithful devotees have suggested that Barr hid critical information when he released a four-page summary of Mueller's findings last month, declaring that the two-year investigation failed to sniff out "collusion" between the Kremlin and Trump.
Specifically, Barr said details from grand jury testimony, classified information and details that could compromise ongoing investigations or "unduly infringe on the personal privacy ... of peripheral third parties" would be removed. Barr said in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees on Friday that a redacted version of the full 300 page report would be released by mid-April, "if not sooner".
Mr. Barr has released a four-page summary of the major findings from special counsel Robert Mueller, concluding that there was no evidence President Trump and his campaign conspired with Russian Federation to subvert the 2016 election.
Health Care Fight Could End Up Being ‘Politically Catastrophic’ for Republicans
Mitt Romney (R-UT) is now pitching in on helping the Trump administration come up with an Affordable Care Act replacement. District Court Judge John Bates said that the move let those involved "avoid the most stringent requirements of the ACA".
That announcement followed Attorney General William Barr statement that Congress and the public would have to wait until mid-April to see a redacted version of the report, which was submitted to Barr by Mueller on March 22nd.
Michael Zeldin, a CNN legal analyst, has served as a federal prosecutor in the Criminal Division of the US Department of Justice and was a special counsel to then-Assistant Attorney General Robert Mueller.
"I think it is a disgrace", Trump said. "Behind closed doors, the Dems are laughing!" the president wrote. Barr's synopsis also left questions unanswered about many other aspects of what Mueller's investigation has uncovered.
But Mr. Nadler says he wants to see what they might have in their files related to the special counsel.
"These are just Democrats that want to try and demean this country and it shouldn't be allowed and I'll totally live by the attorney general", he said.
The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee was quick to defend Barr.
