Leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Monday demanding Robert Mueller’s full report by Tuesday, April 2.

According to NBC News, “Six Democratic committee chairs in the House sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr Monday requesting that he submit the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to Congress by next Tuesday, April 2.”

The Democratic leaders stated the obvious and said that Barr’s four-page PR summary of Mueller’s report “is not sufficient for Congress.”

More from NBC News:

The top House Democrats argued that the provision of the report “in complete and unredacted form” and the underlying evidence and materials would be fully consistent with the Justice Department’s practice and precedent with Congress.

“To the extent that you believe applicable law limits your ability to comply, we urge you to begin the process of consultation with us immediately in order to establish shared parameters for resolving those issues without delay,” they wrote.

The letter is signed by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., and House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.

Forget the Barr report. We need the Mueller report.

Attorney General William Barr’s hastily-crafted summary released on Sunday has raised far more questions than it has answered.

So far, Barr’s political document seems to have served just one purpose: give the Trump administration a jumpstart on the PR war that is likely to be set off by the release of the actual Mueller report, which has not yet been released.

Ultimately, House Democrats are right to demand a swift release of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying evidence that led to his conclusions. The longer the Barr summary circulates, the more misled the American people will be about the actual facts.

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked an attempt to release the report. The Democrats must continue to fight back until the special counsel findings are released in full.

The American people deserve the Mueller report, not the Barr report.
