House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler is pushing Attorney General William Barr to release the full and long-awaited report from special counsel Robert Mueller, adding he will "do everything in our power to secure it for ourselves."

Why it matters: In a New York Times op-ed on Monday, the New York Democrat said Barr's letter raises more questions than answers and reasons that Congress wants to make it easier for future presidents to be held accountable.

"We have every reason to suspect that the unedited obstruction section of the Mueller report resembles the report that Congress received from the Watergate grand jury in 1974."
— Nadler writes

What to watch: Nadler also announced Monday that the committee will vote to reauthorize subpoenas for the release of the Mueller report on Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reports. The vote comes after the committee rejected Barr's announcement of handing over a redacted copy by mid-April.

Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) responded to the Democrats intent to subpoena the Mueller report:

"It’s unfortunate that a body meant to uphold the law has grown so desperate that it’s patently misrepresenting the law, even as the attorney general has already demonstrated transparency above and beyond what is required.”

Americans have cast more than 47.1 million ballots in the 2020 presidential election, surpassing the total early-vote count for 2016 with 12 days left until Election Day, according to a Washington Post analysis of voting data.

Why it matters: The election is already underway, as many states have expanded early and mail-in voting options because of the coronavirus pandemic.

What to expect from the final debate of the 2020 election

Watch for President Trump to address Joe Biden as “the big guy” or “the chairman” at tonight's debate as a way of dramatizing the Hunter Biden emails. Hunter's former business partner Tony Bobulinski is expected to be a Trump debate guest.

The big picture: Trump's advisers universally view the first debate as a catastrophe — evidenced by a sharp plunge in Trump’s public and (more convincingly for them) private polling immediately following the debate.
