But Democrats have said that a redacted report is not acceptable.

The authorizations include subpoenas for Trump administration officials including Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, Hope Hicks, Donald McGahn, and Annie Donaldson. Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec disputed this claim in a statement that was included in the Post's article, but not the Times'. Nadler said he will give Barr time to change his mind on redactions, but if they can not reach an agreement they will issue the subpoenas "in very short order".

Barr recently told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler that he is in the process of redacting certain types of information from the almost 400-page report and intends to release the document by mid-April, if not sooner.

Justice Department regulations give the attorney general wide latitude on how much to release from special counsel inquiries.

Nadler is also authorized to issue subpoenas to five former senior aides to President Donald Trump.

Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said at the beginning of the meeting, before the vote.

In one instance, Americans had elected a new Congress and president by the time a settlement was reached and the case dismissed (Committee on the Judiciary v. Miers). "We're going to ask the attorney general to break his regulations, to break the law". "And for that, congratulations Mr. Attorney General, you get a subpoena".

The Justice Department on Thursday defended Attorney General Bill Barr's handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report but without directly addressing news reports that Mueller's investigators are upset over what Barr has chosen to keep secret for now.

Investigators said that their final report did not "exonerate" the president.

Barr said he was continuing to work with Mueller's office on redactions to the report so that it could be released to Congress and the public.

"We are not willing to let the attorney general, who after all is a political appointee of the president, substitute his judgement for ours".

Congress has two ways to enforce a subpoena, and both are problematic, according to the Congressional Research Service Report, which came out last month. But when it comes to the Mueller Report, which is different on our side, that would be something that he should get. On Tuesday, in an appearance with the NATO Secretary General, Trump kept repeating his father was born in Germany (even though it is well-known and recorded that he was born in NY; his grandfather was born in Germany).

"In 1998, the debate was not about Congress receiving evidence".

The statement also said that every page of Mueller's report was marked that it may contain grand jury material "and therefore could not immediately be released". "We are owed that same opportunity today". The White House has also not received a preview copy of the report.

As a reminder, Special Counsel attorneys are working with Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on redacting material unable to be lawfully released.

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to give its chairman, Rep.

Collins said the authorization for all of the subpoenas is "reckless" and that Democrats shouldn't be asking for documents that the Justice Department can't legally disclose to the public.
