Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked GOP chairman Sen. Charles Grassley to share transcripts of their interviews with witnesses in the Russia probe with special counsel Robert Mueller, Politico reported.

One of the transcripts Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., want to provide Mueller is from the committee's interview with Donald Trump Jr., Politico reported.

Blumenthal has predicted the Trump Jr. transcript would be "explosive" if released, Politico reported.

"You have stated publicly that you believe it is important for the special counsel to carry his investigation through to completion and determine the facts," the Democrats wrote to Grassley, Politico reported. "It is hard to see how withholding the transcripts achieves that goal."

"The transcripts of congressional testimony may reveal other, and better-founded, concerns about witness false statements," they wrote.

Grassley spokesman George Hartmann told Politico the chairman "has long been committed to transparency, and well before this letter from Sens. Whitehouse and Blumenthal, he's said he wants to release as much as possible, including transcripts."

Grassley "intends to confer with" fellow committee members about potential release of transcripts, Hartmann told Politico.
