President Donald Trump would welcome an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be released if he is "truly exonerated" in it, Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Wednesday.
"The public should see it, and Republicans voted in a bipartisan fashion a few weeks ago 420-0, that they wanted to see the full report," Rep. Swalwell told Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime." "We should do it quickly."
There are ways to guard against leaks from the document, including sensitive rooms where materials cannot be removed, in the event the document is released in full to members of Congress, Swalwell said.
"Most importantly, we should get this to the public as soon as possible," Swalwell said. "The public interest outweighs any other interest, other than ongoing investigations, sources, and methods. I still think there's a lot we need to see. If we are going to guard against future interference by Russia . . . we want to know whatever vulnerabilities there are."
The investigation involved the president, he added, and the public paid for it and should see the report, not just the short summary from Attorney General William Barr.
Meanwhile, Swalwell said he has made a decision about running for president, and he plans to announce it shortly. However, he did tell show anchor Harris Faulkner about his experience in Congress, saying he knows what the threats to the nation are and how to protect against them.
