House passes a resolution to release the future Mueller report

Earlier today, in a surprising moment of bipartisanship, The US House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution, calling on the Justice Department to make any future Mueller report available to the public. 

The Attorney General, William Barr, had previously refused to commit to making the report available to the public. Some Republicans argued against the resolution, but 416 Representatives voted yes, with four Representatives voting “present.”

The resolution was blocked in the Senate by Senator Lindsey Graham, who refused to allow a vote.

Some predict that the Mueller report will be released soon and members of both sides of the aisle argued that keeping the report a secret would be unethical and lead to an unfair political advantage for the other party.
