Political News Briefs: A.G. Barr to release Mueller report within a week; Secret Service director fired in “purge”
Here are two political news briefs.
The first — Attorney General Barr told Congress today that he will release the Mueller report within a week with redactions and explanations on the reasons why.
He said Congress would not get an unreacted version but that he will discuss with Congressional leaders on if they feel they need more information.
The House Judiciary Committee last week voted to authorize subpoenas for the full report, but hasn’t issued it.
The second news — the director of the U.S. Secret Service, Randolph Alles, was fired yesterday. A career Secret Service member, James Murray, will take over in May.
CBS News reported that there are several top officials within the Homeland Security Department who will no longer keep their positions after a “purge” led by President Trump adviser Stephen Miller, who wants stricter policies on immigration.
Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) tweeted that Miller is a white nationalist.
Donald Trump Jr. responded that Miller is a Jewish man and that Omar was being anti-semitic again.
