Durbin Statement On AG Barr's Report To Congress

SPRINGFIELD – U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement regarding U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s submission to Congress of a summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election:

“Attorney General Barr has the authority to make the full Mueller findings public with minimal redactions.  He must do so as quickly as possible.  The ‘summary’ document he provided today creates more questions than it answers, particularly with respect to obstruction of justice by the President.  The American people – who for two years have waited patiently for the Mueller investigation to conclude – deserve the full truth in Special Counsel Mueller’s own words.”
