“Premature and unnecessary” describes a lot of reactions to the Mueller report. At least for the Department of Justice, however, it describes a subpoena for the full version of the document issued by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler almost immediately after the release of the redacted version.

On Friday, the New York Democrat subpoenaed Attorney General William Barr to appear before the committee by May 1 with “the complete and unredacted version of the report submitted … by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.”

Department - Accommodation - Access - Materials - Proposal

“I am open to working with the Department to reach a reasonable accommodation for access to these materials, however I cannot accept any proposal which leaves most of Congress in the dark, as they grapple with their duties of legislation, oversight and constitutional accountability,” Nadler said in a statement.

“My Committee needs and is entitled to the full version of the report and the underlying evidence consistent with past practice. The redactions appear to be significant. We have so far seen none of the actual evidence that the Special Counsel developed to make this case.

Version - Report - Instances - Wrongdoing - President

“Even the redacted version of the report outlines serious instances of wrongdoing by President Trump and his closest associates. It now falls to Congress to determine the full scope of that alleged misconduct and to decide what steps we must take going forward.”

The Department of Justice immediately pushed back on the request.

Interest - Transparency - Attorney - General - Counsel

“In the interest of transparency, the Attorney General released the Special Counsel’s ‘confidential report’ with only minimal redactions,” DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement, according to CNN.
