We need to fight for the truth

After nearly two years, the special counsel has completed its investigation, leaving behind a trail of criminal convictions, related investigations, and one as-yet unpublished report. Attorney General Barr has also provided his interpretation of the findings to Congress, most notably declaring that Mueller’s work did not prove any crime by the president. What else Mueller may have discovered, however, remains a mystery to everyone but DoJ officials hand picked by the president.

We the people need to hear the full truth, in Mr. Mueller’s own words. Will you add your name to the list of those demanding a public release of the Mueller report?

Already we know that agents from Moscow approached several different members of the Trump campaign. Rather than report their efforts to undermine our democracy, Trump campaign officials, including his own son and son in law, took their meetings and hid their efforts. Trump’s campaign chairman even shared sensitive campaign polling data with a Kremlin agent.

Maybe that doesn’t violate the law. But it’s certainly unacceptable behavior from anyone who wants to lead our nation. What other details have we not been allowed to see? Did Trump himself know we were under attack and do nothing to stop it? Or was he a hapless enabler, clueless to obvious and overt efforts by foreign agents to subvert our elections?

We can’t know, and we can’t hold our leaders accountable, until we see Mueller’s findings for ourselves.

Most likely Trump was fully aware of the Kremlin’s attacks, but too interested in reaping the financial and electoral benefits to stand up in defense of our country. We cannot hold the president accountable – for better or for worse – without the facts.

AG Barr must provide the details of Mueller’s findings to the American people, and Congress must do its duty to ensure that a full and faithful accounting of the investigation is available for everyone to read for themselves.
