(Newser) – In a unanimous 420-0 vote Thursday, the House passed a resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be made public once it is complete. Though Democrats and Republicans alike overwhelmingly supported the non-binding measure, four Republicans did vote "present," and one explains to the Hill why: "I've said to millions of Americans on television that I support releasing the Mueller report," said Matt Gaetz of Florida. "I take specific exception to the elements of the resolution noting praise for Mueller, without also noting the criticism of his very biased staffing decisions. It’s like he was fishing for talent in the Hillary Clinton fan club aquarium." (Here's the latest sign the probe may be wrapping up.)
