DOJ calls Nadler subpoena for full Mueller report 'premature and unnecessary'

DOJ calls Nadler subpoena for full Mueller report 'premature and unnecessary' | 20 April 2019 | The Department of Justice responded Friday to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler's request for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full and unredacted report, dismissing the request as both "premature and unnecessary." DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement that Attorney General Bill Barr provided Mueller's report on Thursday with only "minimal redactions" and, "in the interest of transparency," the department had provided certain members of Congress, including Nadler, with a report that had "even fewer redactions." "In light of this, Congressman Nadler's subpoena is premature and unnecessary. The Department will continue to work with Congress to accommodate its legitimate requests consistent with the law and long-recognized executive branch interests," Kupec continued.
