Bipartisan Support for Release of the Mueller Report in the House

The House voted overwhelmingly to pass a measure to have the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller released to the public.

In total, 420 members of the House with 230 Democrats and 190 Republicans, voted for the resolution. Not one member of the House voted against it.

But as always, there are those that vote “present” because they are too afraid to make a decision. Those were Republicans Paul Gosar from Arizona, Matt Gaetz from Florida, and libertarians Justin Amash of Michigan and Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

In the Senate, as always it is a different story.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tried the same measure, but was blocked by Senator Lindsey Graham who wanted to add provisions requiring a special counsel investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email and government surveillance of Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser.

Of course, Graham could have also introduced those measures separately, but chose to block Senator Schumer’s deal instead.

The text of the House measure can be seen via this link.
