Harris, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that Barr should provide appropriate information about the report to all relevant congressional committees as well as give public testimony on the report’s findings to Congress.
“We need total transparency here. The Department of Justice launched the Special Counsel investigation to get to the bottom of foreign interference in the 2016 election and any other illegal actions. A declassified report must be made public immediately and Attorney General Barr must publicly testify under oath about the investigation and its findings, and provide all underlying materials to the appropriate Congressional committees,” Harris said.
“This is about securing American democracy and protecting voters’ confidence in our elections and our system of government,” the senator added.
The California Democrat added in an email to supporters Friday evening that she would “not rest” until a declassified copy of the report was made public and Barr testified publicly.
Harris’s call came as other Democrats vying for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination called for the report from the special counsel’s office to be released in full to the public.
