The new top Democrat leading the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, said Friday he will make special counsel Robert Mueller’s report public once it is issued, so the American people can see what is in it.
Nadler said his committee will receive the report once Special counsel Robert Mueller finishes his investigation and if necessary will subpoena it.
“We will make sure it is public,” he told CNN on Friday. “Make sure the American people know what’s in it.”
The New York Democrat is already pushing legislation to protect the special counsel despite the GOP-led Senate likely not willing to take it up. The legislation would require Mr. Mueller to be notified if he is being fired and an opportunity to challenge the dismissal.
“The New Democratic majority will now put an end to the Republican attempts sabotage and undermine the investigation,” Mr. Nadler said. “There will be real consequences from this point for any such attempts.”
The congressman also said his committee won’t wait for Robert Mueller to finish his probe and can start to investigate whether the 2016 election was rigged or compromised, specifically referencing potential Russian collusion and alledged hush payments made by then-candidate Donald Trump to women alleging affairs.
“We have to look into that,” Mr. Nadler said.
