Release the Report

Yesterday, it was reported that Attorney General Bill Barr told the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee "that he's combing through special counsel Robert Mueller's report, removing classified and other information in hopes of releasing it to Congress in April."

That the Attorney General is selectively redacting "other information" based on metrics he has not disclosed is deeply troubling.

As is the fact that he still has made no promise to release the report to the public, despite the fact that a new CBS News poll has found that "more than 3 in 4 Americans, including majorities of both Republicans and Democrats, think the full Mueller report should be released to the public."

Donald Trump, members of his administration, members of his party, and various media surrogates have all been loudly and repeatedly asserting that the report exonerates the president.

If that is indeed the case, one would imagine they'd want the report to be released swiftly and with minimal redactions.

Release the report.
