Republicans have spent the last day taking a victory lap following William Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller Report. Democrats, however, feel that a significant amount of information has yet to be revealed.
One of these pieces of information are Donald Trump’s written answers to the special counsel’s questions. Trump lawyer, Jay Sekulow, says he will do everything in his power to make sure the Democrats never see this correspondence.
Sekulow said on CNN’s New Day, “Well, that would not be a position that I would want, to just make a statement where we would release confidential communications that took place between the President of the United States and the Department of Justice or the special counsel’s office.”
The lawyer continued, “As lawyer, you don’t waive privileges and you don’t waive investigative detail absent either a court order or an agreement between the parties.”
It is interesting that Sekulow discussed court orders, as Democrats are currently in control of the house. There was an almost immediate call for Barr to testify in front of congress following his interpretation of Mueller’s report.
House Judiciary Chairman, Jerrold Nadler, tweeted on Sunday afternoon, “In light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report, where Mueller did not exonerate the President, we will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify before House Judiciary in the near future.”

Lawmakers have also hinted at the possibility of calling in Robert Mueller to shed light on his findings.
