House Democrats are looking to get their hands on the full Mueller report — and they want it sooner rather than later.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) says his committee on Wednesday will vote to authorize a subpoena of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full, unredacted report, per Politico.

House Democrats had previously set an April 2 deadline for Attorney General William Barr to deliver them Mueller's full report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Barr has said that Mueller did not establish a criminal conspiracy between Trump's campaign and Russia and did not determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

Barr in a letter on Friday said a version of the report, which is in the process of being redacted, would be available by mid-April "if not sooner." Although Democrats are expected to authorize a subpoena for the full report on Wednesday, CNN notes it will be up to Nadler at that point to decide when to issue the subpoena, and he hasn't made clear whether he intends to do so before or after Barr releases the redacted report.
