U.S. House issues subpoena for full Mueller report

The House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to the Justice Department on Friday to obtain the full Russia investigation report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The committee's chairman Jerrold Nadler said he cannot accept a redacted version that "leaves most of Congress in the dark." Nadler also told CBS THIS MORNING that his committee wants to hear testimony from Attorney General William Barr as well as Mueller.

SOUNDBITE JERROLD NADLER, CHAIRMAN, HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE: "The report is very Ldamning.

It paints a picture of a president who lies all the time, lies to his staff members, d-- d-- d-- demands that his staff members lie." But even the redacted version of the 448 page report-- the result of an exhaustive 2 year investigation and thousands of interviews - crackles with intriguing details.

Reuters Correspondent Andy Sullivan SOUNDBITE: REUTERS CORRESPONDENT ANDY SULLIVAN SAYING: "For example, Trump asked his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski who is now working as a lobbyist to go talk to the attorney general, at the time, Jeff Sessions, try to get him to limit the scope of the investigation to just looking at the next election.

Lewandowski ultimately didn't follow through on that request." Mueller ultimately could not decide if those actions added up to a crime.

Muller saying "the evidence we obtained about the president's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred".

At an extraordinary news conference ahead of the report's release Thursday Attorney General Barr delivered a spirited defense of President Trump on the key issue of obstruction of justice.

SOUNDBITE: U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, WILLIAM BARR SAYING: "President Trump faced an unprecedented situation." Barr revealing that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had disagreed on some of Mueller's legal theories on obstruction- concluding Trump's actions did not add up to a crime.

SOUNDBITE: U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL, WILLIAM BARR SAYING: "The deputy attorney general and I concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of justice offense." SOUNDBITE: REUTERS CORRESPONDENT ANDY SULLIVAN SAYING: "Safe to say that this is going to give a lot of material for Congress to go through, Democrats are sure to seize on this material and point and say that this did infact constitute obstruction of justice." The report also said Mueller did not exonerate Trump and added that Congress now has the power to address whether Trump obstructed justice.
