Yup, on March 14 of (***checks calendar***) … oh! … this year! The House voted 420-0 to demand that the entire Mueller report be released. And it didn’t list conditions like, say, it can be released only if William Barr decides not to buy a time-share in Donald Trump’s sigmoid colon with Devin Nunes and Jerry Falwell Jr.
House Republicans joined Democrats on Thursday to demand that the Justice Department publicly release the full findings of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and the possible involvement of President Trump’s campaign.
Though the resolution is nonbinding, Democrats who put it on the House floor are trying to build public pressure on Attorney General William P. Barr before the investigation’s anticipated conclusion.
Far from standing in the way, Republicans joined Democrats en masse. On the 420-to-0 vote, four Republicans voted present.
So why is this suddenly a partisan quagmire? Hey, Ted Lieu wants to know, too.
Also, why are Republicans on this committee reversing the very vote they took earlier this year to get the full Mueller Report? pic.twitter.com/LTS5EUTSD0

Is this sort of like every Republican insisting they’re for protecting people with preexisting conditions, when in fact they’re for giving billionaires generous tax breaks to build Soylent Green factories next to urban free clinics?
For some reason, I’m starting to think Republicans aren’t being totally honest with us. Call me crazy.
