America is Watching: Congressman Doggett Calls for Public Release of Mueller Report

Washington, DC — In reaction to the submission of Special Counsel Mueller’s report this evening to Attorney General William P. Barr, Congressman Doggett released the below statement. Last month, Congressman Doggett joined Congressman Cicilline to author legislation to ensure that the Attorney General cannot impede public release of a Special Counsel’s report. The Special Counsel Transparency Act is the House companion to a bill introduced by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).

Tonight, Congressman Doggett releases the following statement:

“We must not permit any walls to be built around the Mueller report. Genuine accountability rests on complete transparency. Without access to all of Mueller’s conclusions and his basis for reaching each, any cherry-picked release of information by Attorney General Barr would obstruct justice. Let’s respond to President Trump’s recent claim that he wants to make this report public by doing just that forthwith. Having nothing to fear means having nothing to hide. America is watching.”
