Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said that Trump is outnumbered and the American people will get to read every word of the Mueller report.
Rep. Swalwell said, “I’m also on the House Judiciary Committee, so first, the American people will see every word, every comma, every period of this report. The president is outnumbered now in a way that he was not before. We have the subpoena power and the precedence of the judiciary. It is just a matter of time, but the American people gave us that power. So we will see the report. Second, don’t think I and most of my colleagues will accept the report unless its voracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.”

Rep. Swalwell was right. It is only a matter of time before the report is made public.
Donald Trump is trying to run out the clock on the Mueller report. The administration may try to delay the release of the report until after the 2020 election. If Trump tries to pass off a written report by his handpicked Attorney General William Barr as the only information to be the publicly released, House Democrats will first request the report, and once that request is denied, they will subpoena the report. Trump will ignore the subpoena, so Democrats will take him to court to get the report released.
Democrats have the power, so they will definitely get the report.
The Mueller report will be made public.
Democrats are going to fight to make sure that every Mueller word is available to the public, and there is nothing Trump can do to stop them.
