In my view, Barr summarized the report in a way suggesting that the focus and scope was prosecution rather than a counter intelligence fact finding. We the people asked Mueller to discover what Russia did, how they did it ,and who helped them do it. At minimum the People's Representatives should be provided the full report without redaction or edit. Not releasing the report doesn't serve We The People in any positive fashion.

Mueller is a man of character, and ethics.

He isn't DJT.

Congress will subpoena him to testify. He will talk then.

I'm surprised with your knowledge of the law, you didn't understand this.

I think it was sarcasm ( Did I just commit what Attorney General Willam  Barr did with the Muller Report )....with Muller being tied up.

This is very true. However, We the People deserve to know the truth. I understand things need to be redacted for the safety of our intelligence. I  do not fill comfortable with Attorney General Willam Barr making this judgment call. He does not represent the We the People. He, unfortunately, shows unwavering loyalty to one person only which President  Donald Trump and his supporters. Our representatives need to stand up and actually demand the report. That is why they were elected to be our voices.

How is there is already a 97-page rebuttal if you did not see the Mullers' report?

It would be a mistake, in my opinion, to assume that Trump's legal team has not been provided access to at least portions of the actual report. Trump doesn't necessarily conform to precedent, ethics, or norms when directing the actions of his appointees.

The Special Counsel’s Report: Can Congress Get It?

   ...    The federal judiciary has generally sought to avoid adjudicating disputes between the executive and legislative branches when possible, instead encouraging the branches to settle their differences through a process of negotiation and accommodation. However, the House has previously been successful in using the courts to enforce a congressional subpoena issued to the Attorney General, though the context-specific nature of judicial rulings in this field means that a similar result might not be guaranteed in every case where Congress seeks executive branch records. Nevertheless, while both limits on information sharing are subject to multiple variables and little judicial guidance, in both cases, exceptions exist that may provide Congress with an avenue to obtain at least some protected material.congressional subpoena seeking disclosure, the decision would likely stem, at least in part, from two legal limitations that restrict the release of information about federal criminal investigations:

 (1) Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e) (Rule 6(e)), which, among other things, prohibits an attorney for the government from disclosing “a matter occurring before the grand jury”; and

 (2) “executive privilege,” which potentially insulates certain information from disclosure to protect executive branch confidentiality interests.

 The legal considerations that could impact the Attorney General’s decision to withhold specific information from Congress may vary depending on the particular nature and context of the requested information and any subpoena. However, these two doctrines would appear most likely to inform not only the Attorney General’s decision, but also any potential judicial consideration of the question if an impasse between Congress and the executive branch over the Special Counsel report were eventually to make its way to court.

Trump has said release it.

His supporters say release it. 

Everyone is saying release it

Not one layperson, not in Washington, is against releasing the documentation that doesn't reveal US secrets. The Right want to settle this matter once and for all, and the Left wants to find the smoking gun. 

So what the issue? If they do release it, great! All will be seen. If they don't, then the Left revamps the Russian Collusion story for the next 5 years.

I do not think it is the "left." Attorney Willam Barr was not elected into his position he was appointed by Donald Trump. Unfortunately, he is judging and being the juror. He is defending Trump instead of supporting this country and letting the truth come out.

Attorney General Willam Barr should allow Congress to redact since he is ethically compromised.
