Senior prosecutor Weissmann to leave U.S. special counsel's team soon

Lindsey Graham Just Issued a FISA Abuse Clinton Ultimatum on the Release of Mueller's Special Counsel Report

Several other prosecutors detailed to Mueller's team have also left in recent months, suggesting the investigation is winding down and that Mueller may soon turn in a report to Attorney General William Barr.

The House on Thursday overwhelmingly passed a resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be made available to the public and Congress.

In a bill, which likely will come to the House floor for a vote later today, House Democrats call for the public release of any report issued by the special counsel's office.

Mueller has been investigating since May 2017 whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow and whether the president has unlawfully tried to obstruct the probe.

Four Republicans voted present: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a vote on the measure but was blocked by Sen.

During his confirmation process, Barr told Congress that he would permit Mueller to complete his work and that his goal would be to provide "as much transparency" as he could within the limits of the law.

Mueller and his team have been looking into possible crimes committed by the president or his associates, with a particular focus on whether or not they colluded with Russian interests during the presidential election of 2016. Politico also reported his departure, citing one source familiar with the move.

"It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency".

At least one Republican is siding with Democrats.

"It's nothing but a restatement of the regulation", said Rep. Doug Collins, Georgia Republican.

There have been numerous reports that Mueller's investigation is winding down.

Under the regulation governing Mr. Mueller's work, he must submit a report at the conclusion of his investigation to the US attorney general explaining his decisions to pursue or decline prosecutions, including explanations of cases he investigated but he decided not to bring charges. The letter asked for a public release of the Mueller report and that the attorney general provide to Congress any information in the report that can not be publicly released by law. Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a member of the House intelligence committee, said he believes the resolution should have been even broader.

Democrats are anxious that Barr's strict defense of his own prerogative, combined with his stated respect for Justice Department rules advising against both the indictment of a sitting president or impugning an unindicted individual in an investigative report, means potential information implicating President Donald Trump in alleged wrongdoing could be buried.

"We'll see", he said.
