Today I met with William Barr to ask him again to commit to release the complete Special Counsel’s report directly to Congress & the American public. He chose not to. This issue is transcendent at this point in our history. Therefore, I cannot support Barr’s nomination for AG.
I disagree with William Barr on policy issues from women’s health care & reproductive rights to criminal justice reform & civil rights. And importantly: I disagree with his decision not to commit to releasing the Mueller report or comply with a subpoena to release the findings.
For me, the issue of releasing the Special Counsel’s report is a defining & definitive test of a larger question: will Mr. Barr be the people’s lawyer or the President’s lawyer? The answer is unclear & that’s deeply concerning.
Americans deserve to know what is in the Special Counsel’s report. That’s why Senator @ChuckGrassley & I have introduced legislation requiring complete & full disclosure of the findings, in service of transparency & the public’s right to know the facts.
