[April 19, 2019 Letter to the Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice William P. Barr]   [open pdf - 115KB]

From the Letter: "We write in response to your proposal regarding restricted access to a less redacted version of Special Counsel Mueller's report. Unfortunately, your proposed accommodation--which among other things would prohibit discussion of the full report, even with other Committee Members--is not acceptable. In order for Congress to fulfill its functions as intended by the Constitution, it must operate as a coequal and coordinate branch of government. Given the comprehensive factual findings presented by the Special Counsel's Report, some of which will only be fully understood with access to the redacted material, we cannot agree to an arrangement that does not include a mechanism for ensuring access to grand jury material."
