The American People deserve the whole truth!

Since last June, William Barr has worked to publicly clear Donald Trump of obstruction of justice in the Mueller investigation. That was eight months before Barr was confirmed as Attorney General, and nine months before Robert Mueller turned in his report.

Last month, two days after receiving Mueller's 400-page report, Barr claimed – without giving any evidence – that the report lets Trump off the hook. And yesterday, Barr defended Trump's action's in a press conference before releasing the redacted report to Congress and the American people.

Despite Barr's politicized efforts to clear Trump, we learned that Mueller found the president's answers to be "inadequate" and that the report did not clear the president.

"If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state."

Additionally, the report makes it clear that the Trump campaign "expected" to benefit from Russia's illegal actions and that Trump demonstrated a pattern of behavior to harm the Mueller investigation:

"The president's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests."

We learned a lot yesterday, but the American people need to see the full report.

Our democracy depends on an informed public that knows the whole truth about our elected officials.

Tell Attorney General William Barr: The American people deserve the truth. Release the full Mueller report!
