Democrats are unsatisfied with Attorney General William Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, instead calling for the release of the report in full—and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is putting on the pressure.
Pelosi has several times made clear that she wants the full Mueller report released to the public, rather than have the Department of Justice give Congress a classified briefing. Over the weekend, Speaker Pelosi penned a series of tweets demanding Barr “release the report and allow the facts to be known!”
Speaker Pelosi reiterated her demands again Monday afternoon, sharing a video of “broken clock” President Trump on Twitter in which he was asked, “Does the American public have a right to see the Mueller report?”

“I don’t mind. In fact, I told the House, if you want, let them see it,” replied Trump.
“Even a broken clock is right twice a day,” Speaker Pelosi mocked in her caption.
Trump has repeatedly said he wouldn’t mind if the full Mueller was released to the public. So far, Mueller has simply stated his team did not find any evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to during the 2016 presidential election.
