The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee voted last month along party lines in favor of holding U.S. Attorney General William Barr in contempt after he declined to release Mueller’s full, unredacted 448-page report to the committee, despite a congressional subpoena.
Nadler said Monday that contempt proceedings would be paused in light of the Justice Department’s cooperation.
Republicans have sharply criticized Democrats as they have battled Trump's administration over the Mueller report, subpoenaed multiple administration witnesses and made efforts to gain access to Trump's personal and business financial records. Trump has said he will fight "all the subpoenas."
Barr released a redacted version of Mueller’s report at the end of the special counsel’s 22-month investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its possible ties to Trump and his campaign officials. In the report, Mueller said his team found no evidence of collusion, but he declined to make a decision on whether there was enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.
Barr later declined to prosecute Trump.
