Anchorage group wants full release of Mueller report
As special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly readies his findings on whether Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a group of Anchorage protesters pushed this week to ensure that his final report is available to the public.
Demonstrators gathered Thursday near the corner of West 13th Avenue and I Street, unveiling a sign listing the more than 100 allegations under investigation by Mueller.
Mueller's confidential report will initially be provided to President Trump's new attorney general, William Barr, confirmed last month with yes votes from Alaska's Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan. The demonstrators, however, hope Alaska's congressional delegation will take action to demand the report's full release.
"Everybody has to see that our democracy is dependent on it," said demonstrator Meda Dewitt. "We cannot allow the external forces to come in and mess with our campaigns and our country."
The group urged lawmakers not to settle for summaries and demand nothing short of maximum disclosure.
