For the most part, Democrats have continued with the same mantra: they want Attorney General William Barr to release the full report put together by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Their reason? They don't believe a word "Trump's hand-picked Attorney General" has to say. Translation: they aren't hearing what they want to hear.
The 2020 Democrats continued in line with the party's talking points, demanding the Mueller report be made public.
Here's just a taste of what they said:
I don’t want a summary of the Mueller report. I want the whole damn report. https://t.co/VU1oNfBMK0— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) March 24, 2019
The Mueller report needs to be made public, the underlying investigative materials should be handed over to Congress, and Barr must testify. That is what transparency looks like. A short letter from Trump's hand-picked Attorney General is not sufficient.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) March 24, 2019
The American public deserves the full report and findings from the Mueller investigation immediately—not just the in-house summary from a Trump Administration official. https://t.co/8Lj0O881Cw— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) March 24, 2019
Congress voted 420-0 to release the full Mueller report. Not a "summary" from his handpicked Attorney General. AG Barr, make the full report public. Immediately.— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) March 24, 2019
Out in front of the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building. Justice must be done and the entire Mueller report should be made public. pic.twitter.com/aVD1xu0Znd— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) March 24, 2019
AG Barr's summary 4-pg letter of Special Counsel Mueller's investigation underscores that the ENTIRE report & documentation-including all information re Russia’s attempts to influence our election-need to be made public. The public deserves answers now-our democracy depends on it— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) March 24, 2019
The Mueller report must be made public. Not just a letter from someone appointed by Trump to protect himself—all of it. The President works for the people, and he is not above the law. https://t.co/XH5NqzLJAb— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) March 24, 2019
Release the full Mueller report to the American people and their representatives. There must be transparency and accountability.— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) March 24, 2019
The American people deserve the opportunity to read the full Mueller report, not a sanitized summary from Donald Trump’s hand-picked AG. The Trump administration has proven it can’t be trusted. It’s time to #releasethereport.— Jay Inslee (@JayInslee) March 24, 2019
A politically appointed Attorney General shouldn’t decide how much of the Special Counsel report Congress can read. The full report should be released and Robert Mueller should testify to its findings. https://t.co/4rNtqD19ko— Julián Castro (@JulianCastro) March 24, 2019
Former Vice President Joe Biden, Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenloop, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttgiet and Andrew Yang didn't mention the Mueller report.
Republicans have wanted Mueller's full report to be made public so Democrats would have absolutely no reason to say collusion and obstruction existed. Right now, the report's future, and whether or not it'll be made public, rests in the Justice Department's hands.
