Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said the administration is "playing games" by refusing to hand over a unredacted version of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Raskin made his comments Wednesday during an interview on Hill.TV. They came shortly before it was announced President Donald Trump will assert executive privilege over the report and its underlying in investigative materials..
"They're playing games with this," said Raskin, a member of the House Judiciary Committee. "This is not hide-and-go-seek.
"We are the Congress of the United States. We're the lawmaking branch of the government. We are in Article One."
He added: "Remember, the president's job is simply to take care that the laws are faithfully executed – not circumvented, not trashed, not violated. And the president is not implementing the laws here. He is not being faithful to the law, and he's not maintaining his oath to the Constitution."
