PALM SPRINGS – As House Democrats on Wednesday authorized subpoenas for the Mueller report, local Courageous Resistance leaders are calling for a National Day of Action on Thursday, April 4, to demand that Attorney General William Barr #ReleaseTheReport.
Congressional leaders set a deadline of Tuesday, April 2 for Barr to turn over the report. Barr offered an alternate timeline for a redacted version of the report—but Courageous Resistance leaders say, “We deserve the full report and Congressional leaders and the American people expect it now.
Barr must #ReleaseTheReport and #MakeItPublic, leaders argue.
They have organized a #ReleaseTheReport Rally at 5 p.m. in Frances Stevens Park, 555 N. Palm Canyon Drive and Alejo Drive in Palma Springs.
Attendees are encouraged to wear Courageous Resistance Gear and bring signs.
Resisters are also encouraged to Congressional representatives to demand #ReleaseTheReport.

According to ABC News, the House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines on Wednesday to authorize the chairman to issue subpoenas for the full Mueller report, setting the stage for a potential legal battle between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration.
Twenty-four committee Democrats voted to authorize the subpoenas for the full Mueller report and release of the underlying evidence to Congress, and 17 Republicans voted no.
Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., hasn’t said when he might subpoena the Justice Department after the committee vote to give him the authority, but he has said he plans to work with Attorney General William Barr to “minimize redactions” to the Mueller report.
The top Democrat on the committee said Congress needs the full report “because it is our job, not the attorney general’s, to determine whether or not President Trump has abused his office.”
Nadler said he wouldn’t immediately issue the subpoenas for the Mueller report and the underlying materials, and would also be willing to go to court if necessary.
