If Attorney General William Barr tries to “sanitize" the Russia report from special prosecutor Robert Mueller, Congress will have to “ensure” Americans “know what happened in 2016,” Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said Sunday.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Markey said the Mueller report “potentially gives us those answers.”

“If the attorney general takes the Mueller report and then sanitizes it and releases that as the answer to a comprehensive investigation, then I think the Democrats in the House and Senate, along with Republicans, have a responsibility to ensure that the American people know what happened in 2016,” he said.

“What was the relationship between the Trump campaign and the Russian government?” he continued. “Was there any subsequent relationship in the post-election period? We don't know the answers to those questions.”

Markey added that “everything rides on that Mueller report and the Attorney General William Barr not sanitizing it in a way that is not transparent to the public and the Congress.”

“The Democrats have a responsibility to do that job,” he declared.

His remarks came the same day Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to sue for the full release of the Mueller report and subpoena the special counsel himself to testify before Congress.
