House Votes Almost Unanimously For Public Release Of Mueller Report



In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote, the U.S. House of Representatives called Thursday for special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election to be made public when it is completed.

The vote is not legally binding, but it represents the growing pressure from both sides of the aisle on the Justice Department to disclose as much of the report as possible.

"I rise in support of this resolution because I want the whole truth and nothing but the truth to come to light in this matter," said Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, on the House floor before the vote. "Full transparency is the only way to prevent future speculation."

The final vote tally was 420 members voting in favor, no members voting against, and four members (Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Thomas Massie, R-Ky. and Paul Gosar, R- Ariz.) voting "present."

I can't remember the last time the House voted unanimously on such a critical measure!

I imagine some if not most of the Republicans in the house found their courage because they knew McConnell wouldn't bring it up for a vote in the Senate.

However it was still a nice statement.

2. I believe so but

I haven't seen much if any coverage of the House vote on CNN?

I would think a historical vote like this should measure some coverage, I mean you can't hardly beat unanimous.

3. My advice is to

Turn off CNN and the rest of Cable Noise Infotainment. Multisource your news and information from sources that have something in mind beyond keeping you tuned in between ads for drugs we never knew we needed.

I really don't consider CNN, MSNBC to be more than noise and Fox is just plain propaganda.
