The Justice Department says the subpoena issued by House Democrats for the full special counsel report is unnecessary.
    
Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec says Attorney General William Barr released the report with “minimal redactions.”
    
Kupec says the department is working with Congress to view more of the report and the subpoena issued Friday by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is “premature and unnecessary.”
    
The department offered Friday to have a select group of congressional leaders view some of the redacted information from the report. But Democrats rejected that offer as insufficient.
