Democrats have clamored for months to convince Trump and Barr to make Mueller’s full conclusions available to Congress and the public. Trump's conservative allies, meanwhile, are going on offense against the report, hoping to get out ahead of any potentially damaging revelations that may stem from it.

Several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates echoed calls from congressional Democrats following Mueller's submission, saying that full transparency was crucial to holding the president accountable for any possible wrongdoing.
