Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a 2020 candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, said Monday the House needs the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller before deciding on impeachment.

“They cannot make the decision until we have the entire report. Four hundred and twenty members of the House voted that that report should be public, and that hasn’t happened,” the Minnesota senator said on “CBS This Morning.”

“This is simply a four-page letter from the president’s attorney general that summarizes what happened and leaves open a lot of questions, like saying that the report sets out evidence ‘on both sides of the question’ and, ‘it does not exonerate him,’ ” she added.

“So to me, if I’m in the House looking at that question, I want to see the whole report, and certainly the public wants to see the report,” Ms. Klobuchar continued.

The four-page summary provided by Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday said Mr. Mueller exonerated President Trump and his campaign from any collusion with Russia but chose to not make a determination on obstruction of justice.

Mr. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the evidence against obstruction of justice is not enough to pursue charges.

Many Democratic senators and representatives have called for the full report to be released to the public, a move Mr. Trump said Monday “wouldn’t bother him at all.”
