Democrats in the House may stop at nothing to get their hands on the final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff is even threatening to go to court as some people are speculating the final report may not be released.
It is being reported that Mueller may soon conclude his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. At this point, he has said he would hand over a final report to his superiors at the Justice Department.
While newly confirmed Attorney General William Barr has promised to release the report or as much as he can without jeopardizing national security, it is unclear if the final report will reach the public eye so Democrats are taking action.
From the Daily Wire:
In the surest sign yet that Democrats are concerned the final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller won’t bring down the Trump presidency, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff has vowed to go to court if the report isn’t made public. He also said he would haul Mueller before congress for questioning if the report wasn’t released.
While appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Schiff said he was “absolutely” prepared to sue the Trump administration if FBI Director William Barr didn’t release the full report.
“We will obviously subpoena the report. We will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress. We will take it to court if necessary,” the California Democrat said.
According to the report, Schiff may not stop at a subpoena of the report of itself, but may call Mueller in for questioning or continue their own investigation into Trump.

Schiff last month said he would continue to investigate a debunked detail of Mueller’s investigation, paving the way for the House Democrat to continue investigating Trump even if Mueller finds no wrongdoing. Democrats besides Schiff have also vowed to continue investigating Trump until they find something they can use to impeach him.
Prior to Schiff’s threat on Sunday, the House Intelligence Committee chairman criticized the allegedly limited scope of the special counsel’s investigation — in what appears to be a clear sign that Schiff doesn’t believe Mueller will find anything.
“If the special counsel hasn’t subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, he can’t be doing much of a money laundering investigation,” Schiff said two weeks ago. “So that’s what concerns me, that that red line has been enforced, whether by the deputy attorney general or by some other party at the Justice Department. But that leaves the country exposed.”
