This would demand that the Mueller report be made public

This Concurrent Resolution would require that all results of the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia be turned over to Congress.

It also would require that all of the information (except for any part expressly prohibited by law) be made available to the public.

The resolutions provides reasons for releasing the report

Among the resolution's justifications for demanding the release of the report...

o More than 35 individuals and companies have been publicly indicted in connection with the investigation

o Eight of those have either pleaded guilty or been convicted

o At his confirmation hearing, Attorney General William Barr testified "I believe it is very important that the public and Congress be informed of the results of the special counsel's work. For that reason, my goal will be to provide as much transparency as I can consistent with the law."

o There is an overwhelming public interest in the report to ensure public confidence in the process and the result of the investigation.

The resolution expresses intent - but cannot be enforced.

Concurrent Resolutions are non-binding, so Congress cannot enforce the demand. It merely expresses representatives' desires to obtain the information.
