Mueller's Final Trump-Russia Report Must Be Made Public,

• By Ramsey Touchberry

A bipartisan pair of senators from the Judiciary Committee is pushing legislation that would ensure that special counsel Robert Mueller's final report will be made public, in addition to other future reports from special counsels.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and GOP Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa introduced the Special Counsel Transparency Act on Monday. It would require a special counsel's report to be submitted "directly to Congress and the public at the conclusion of an investigation, if the Special Counsel is fired or transferred, or if the Special Counsel resigns."

The intent is to protect the findings from being "sealed or selectively censored," Blumenthal said in a statement.

The bipartisan move comes after Attorney General Nominee William Barr signaled during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month that it's unclear what—if anything—he would allow from Mueller's final report to be made public.
