The three branches of our federal government were created to carry out specific functions, and to keep each other true to their purpose. Both the executive and legislative branches supposedly represent the majority of the voting public and are, therefore, partisan. But the judicial was designed to be unbiased; it is for making impartial judgments about the rule of law in particular cases. (However, over the years, Supreme Court justices have been appointed for their political leanings.)

Donald Trump looks upon the position of Attorney General, which heads the Department of Justice, as one to assure his own interests as the president. So far, William Barr has done just that, by only showing the complete Robert Mueller report to Trump's team. The U.S. Congress, which represents the people, received a highly redacted version, along with a four-page summary covering the report's more than 400 pages. Mr. Barr has also openly defied Congress by willfully ignoring the summons to appear before a House committee to testify.

It seems to me many people who hold offices in the federal government forget their salaries, and the money spent on government projects, are paid for by the American people.

I strongly believe that we are entitled to know the full contents of Mr. Mueller's report, and he must be allowed to testify before the House of Representatives so we may know the truth.
