ACLU Calls for Public Release of Mueller Report on Russia Investigation
WASHINGTON - The American Civil Liberties Union today called for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation to be made public.
ACLU National Legal Director David Cole said:
“Elected officials work for the people and we deserve to see government business conducted in daylight. The American people have a right to know if President Trump and his associates coordinated with Russia to interfere in our elections, the full extent of Russian efforts to affect our elections, and any attempts to interfere with Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. We urge the Department of Justice to release the report swiftly, once it has minimally redacted any information that is properly withheld.
“If the Department of Justice does not make the Mueller report public, Congress should use its subpoena powers to make sure the truth sees the light of day.”
