On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller released his report to Attorney General Bill Barr.
Pundits have debated just how much of the report will be released to the public.
“It looks like a battle is shaping up between the Democrats who want to see everything, including all the underlying documentation, and the Trump Administration, the attorney general who says he will be as transparent as possible within Justice Department guidelines,” CNN host Wolf Blitzer said.
CNN analyst Susan Hennessey explained that Barr might not have the final say.
“One thing to note is that Bill Barr might not have the final word,” she said. “Adam Schiff has said they intend to call Robert Mueller. Executive privilege is something that a witness or government can assert to withhold information.”
She added, “If Mueller decides that he wants to testify about something, executive privilege is not something that prevents him from testifying if he chooses to do so.”
“One thing to look for is whether Mueller feels satisfied that the information that he thinks is important for the American people to know and for Congress to know is actually getting out. If not, he will have an opportunity to testify his own story and his own conclusions in front of Congress.”
