Two Arizona Republicans voted Wednesday against issuing a subpoena for the complete report by special counsel Robert Mueller despite urging its release to Congress and the public last month.
Reps. Andy Biggs and Debbie Lesko joined other GOP members on the House Judiciary Committee in voting against the subpoena, which still passed 24-17 with Democratic support, including from Rep. Greg Stanton, D-Ariz.
The division formally erased any hopes for bipartisan agreement on releasing Mueller’s nearly 400-page report. On March 14, the House voted 420-0 on a resolution urging the release of the full, unedited report to Congress and for a public version that omits some sensitive information.
Wednesday’s vote includes providing the underlying evidence gathered by Mueller in his two-year probe.
