Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Sunday bitterly lashed out at Attorney General William Barr as a “biased defender” of the Trump administration, saying his summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was unreliable.
In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the panel is “entitled” to see the full report.
"We're hearing leaks that Barr misrepresented in his so-called summary letter what's in the report, that he sugar coated it, that he made it look more favorable for the president than it was,” Nadler said.
"I dismiss what [Barr] said. He's a biased defender of the administration and he's entitled to be defending the administration but he is not entitled to withhold the evidence from Congress."
Nadler indicated if necessary, lawmakers could go to court to ensure they’ll see even grand jury data in the Mueller report.
"Congress has a right to the entire report with no redactions whatsoever so we can see what's there,” he said. “We're entitled to see it because Congress represents the nation. And Congress has to take action on any of it. So we're entitled to see all of it."
"We would have to go the court to get the release of the grand jury information but that has happened successfully in every previous situation,” he added. “And it's not up to the attorney general to decide with respect to that or with respect to other material that he decides Congress can't see."
