Lowcountry group protesting for full release of Mueller report

News

People in the Lowcountry are taking action Thursday night with a protest and a strong message for the attorney general. They want William Barr to release Robert Mueller’s report in its entirety.

Organizers of the event plan to grab signs and protest. It comes after action Wednesday at the Nation’s Capitol. 24 democrats took a big step in the House Judiciary Committee. They voted to authorize subpoenas to release the full report. 

17 Republicans voted against it. Experts say it’s the start of a long, legal battle.

Attorney General William Barr says he plans to release the report in mid-April. 

Robert Mueller’s report contains grand jury and classified information, so Barr says the report will have redactions. Beaufort and Lowcountry Indivisible says it is not enough. 

Thursday’s protest will happen at a public space across the street from Representative Joe Cunningham’s Office at 710 Boundary Street in Beaufort. Cunningham has tweeted out his support to make the report public as well.

Organizers say they invited other local chapters of Lowcountry Indivisible and other political activists.  They expect 50 people to be there. 

There are reports of similar protests happening Thursday in Savannah.
