President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted that he told Republican leadership to allow all GOP House members to vote in favor of releasing Special Counsel Robert Meuller's upcoming report in a vote taken Thursday.
"On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency," Trump tweeted Saturday morning. "Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter. Play along with the game!
The House voted unanimously to pass the resolution to ask the Department of Justice to release Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election once it is complete. Four Republicans voted present.
Later, GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham blocked the resolution in the Senate.
