The non-binding resolution, which was introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who argued there is an “overwhelming public interest” in Mueller’s report, was passed in a 420-0 vote.
“It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency. At a time when the president has publicly attacked the Russian investigation more than 1,100 times and counting. Among other things, the president has repeatedly referred to the investigation as a witch hunt and called it a hoax, rigged, and a scam,” Jerry Nadler said on the floor. “This resolution is also needed because high-ranking DOJ. officials have indicated that they may not release –– that they may not release information about individuals who are not indicted.”
Republican Representatives Paul Gosar (AZ), Matt Gaetz (FL), Thomas Massie (KY) and Justin Amash (MI) voted ‘present’ on Thursday.
“I’ve said to millions of Americans on television that I support releasing the Mueller report,” Gaetz told The Hill.
