House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler Issues Subpoena To Access Entire Mueller Report

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler issued a subpoena to obtain the entire, unredacted Mueller report just one day after the redacted version was released to the public.

Nadler made the remarks in a statement Friday saying the Justice Department has to comply with the request by May 1.

The New York Democrat has suggested lawmakers need access to the entire report without redactions in order to make “informed decisions.”

Nadler has also said he believes there is still a question the president obstructed justice, although President Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow has argued against the claims, citing the Mueller report findings.

Nadler mentioned he would push for subpoenas on Thursday but did not say when he would issue them.

Nadler’s Friday comments come just one day after Attorney General William Barr held a Mueller report press conference clarifying the special counsel did not find evidence of Russian collusion during the 2016 presidential election.

Barr also went on to mention there was also not sufficient evidence to suggest President Trump obstructed justice during the ongoing, nearly two-year “witch hunt.”
