Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his nearly two-year investigation into the Russia probe involving the President of the United States is expected to be delivered to the Department of Justice soon. But, will the Mueller report be made public?

The Democrats want the entire report to be publicized, according to Fox News, while those in support of Trump want to keep the findings as confidential as possible.

“We are going to get to the bottom of this,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said. “We are going to share this information with the public. And if the president is serious about all his claims of exoneration, then he should welcome the publication of the report.”

“We will obviously subpoena the report,” Schiff told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’ “This Week.” “We will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress; we will take it to court if necessary. And in the end, I think the department understands they’re going to have to make this public.”

The current Attorney General, William Barr, has a relationship with Trump and has been critical of Mueller and the Russia probe, which cast doubt on his integrity.

“If he were to try to withhold, try to bury any part of this report, that will be his legacy,” Schiff said. “And, it will be a tarnished legacy. So I think there will be immense pressure not only on the department but on the attorney general to be forthcoming.”

According to Fox News, after Barr’s testimony, Democratic Senator Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut claimed that Barr had implied he would take advantage of legal “loopholes” to hide the report from the public and to fight subpoenas against the White House.

When asked about releasing the full report to the public, Barr told Blumenthal, “I will commit to providing as much information as I can, consistent with the regulations.”

But the Democrats can point to a recent example in support of their argument for the release of Mueller’s findings. During the 2016 investigation into the then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Justice Department released documents, including those that the Republican Party wanted for their own examinations.

Schiff told the Department’s officials that “this was a new precedent they were setting, and they were going to have to live by this precedent whether it was a Congress controlled by the Democrats or Republicans.”

President Trump has already been showing signs of worry, going out of his way to continuously defend himself. If there were no wrongdoings, there shouldn’t be any fear of releasing all the information to the public. But if there were, the concern it’s understandable. Hopefully, we will see the outcome of this entire saga soon.
