    But I have to ask: Do people REALLY want an AG that lets his actions be determined by politics? I know the Dems do. Heck, they had an entire administration that played politics during the Obama days, and they loved it.
    There you go... You have pinned down their true motivations.

    Nadler, the head of the Judiciary Committee doesn't have the clearance to get the full, unredacted report.
    No, the report would be the Mueller Report itself, which, after redactions for national security purposes, will be read directly into the Congressional Record. The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee has the right to obtain it directly from the Special Counsel, so we won't be seeing any watered down version of it, and nothing will be hidden from the public.

    The "we the people" thing applies to all three branches.

    If there are laws (constitutional reasons) that prevent the report from being outright relessed to the public, then Congress can't order the DOJ to ignore those laws.

    If that were true, we wouldn't be watching the House waste time with this useless resolution.

    You didn't answer my question. I was asking about what the AG should do.

    Sorry, but you are wrong. There is no law that says Barr has to give the Judiciary Committee anything.

    They'll take what they get.

    Barr should make public all he safely & legally can.

    In addition, Trump should order it so; he has the power to declassify whatever he wants, and has shown a willingness to do so in other matters.

    If I were the Dems, I'd run on making the report public.
