They were among those who got document requests from Mr. Nadler last month, and some of them have said they are cooperating.

Nadler is "setting arbitrary deadlines", top Judiciary Committee Republican Doug Collins has said, adding that demanding the report's unredacted release amounted to "calling the attorney general to break the law by releasing the report without redactions".

The Democratic lawmaker who chairs the House Judiciary Committee has said that he will approve a subpoena to obtain an unabridged version of the Mueller report, in what could be described as a Hail Mary for Russiagaters.

"The special counsel, under the rules, has an obligation to file a report with the attorney general".

"As I have made clear, Congress requires the full and complete Special Counsel report, without redactions, as well as access to the underlying evidence", Nadler said in a statement Monday.

Woodward told "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that while Mueller's report, according to Barr, did not show a 2016 Trump campaign/Russian government conspiracy, it was not a total vindication of Trump either.

The Judiciary Committee cited "historical precedent" for the full release of the Mueller report-specifically Watergate, when a judge ordered a 55-page grand jury roadmap to be provided to the committee; and during the Ken Starr investigation of former President Bill Clinton, when a 455-page report along with evidence including grand jury material was provided to the panel.

The judiciary committee said it would meet on Wednesday, a day after the deadline, to write a resolution authorising subpoenas for Mueller's complete report as well as the underlying evidence and related matters.

"Each of our committees is now engaged in oversight activities that go directly to the President's conduct, his attempts to interfere with federal and congressional investigations, his relations and communications with the Russian government and other foreign powers, and/or other alleged instances of misconduct", the letter reads.

"Barr did say that the Mueller report shows" that there was "not a crime on President Trump's part", Woodward explained.

The committee said the Justice Department gave Congress more than 880,000 pages of internal investigative records from the Clinton probe as well as classified and sensitive law enforcement information from an early Russian Federation probe that Mueller took over.

The five officials were likely key witnesses during Mueller's investigation of whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to thwart the prosecutor's 22-month probe.
