U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has laid it on the line for Attorney General William Barr.
Release the findings put together by special counsel Robert Mueller . . . or else.
The “or else” involves forcing Mueller to testify before the House panel — presumably in public — about what he learned after investigating whether Donald Trump’s campaign for president in 2016 colluded with Russians who interfered in our election.
Schiff said he will subpoena Mueller, make him take an oath and then grill him in search of answers.
Of course, Barr has sent no obvious signal that he intends to keep the Mueller report secret when the special counsel presents it to him, presumably in short order. However, Schiff is taking no chances.
Nor should he. I’ve said all along that the Mueller report needs to be made public. He needs to release all that he can without revealing national secrets to the public that has paid good money — several million dollars, in fact — for him to look for the truth behind the alleged “collusion” with Russian operatives.
It’ s our money that paid for this probe. Thus, the results of the investigation are ours as well.
I am totally on board with Chairman Schiff tossing the “or else” threat to AG Barr.
Make the Mueller report public, Mr. Attorney General.
