The top two Democrats on Capitol Hill said the American people deserve transparency when it comes to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report, which was delivered to the Department of Justice Friday.

The full text of a statement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

"Now that special counsel Mueller has submitted his report to the attorney general, it is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation and findings to Congress. Attorney General [William] Barr must not give President Trump, his lawyers or his staff any 'sneak preview' of special counsel Mueller's findings or evidence, and the White House must not be allowed to interfere in decisions about what parts of those findings or evidence are made public.

"The special counsel's investigation focused on questions that go to the integrity of our democracy itself: whether foreign powers corruptly interfered in our elections, and whether unlawful means were used to hinder that investigation. The American people have a right to the truth. The watchword is transparency."

In a letter to lawmakers, Barr said he might be able to brief them on the report's findings as soon as this weekend.
