Mueller's team assumed the information was going to be made available to the public, the official said, "and so they prepared their summaries to be shared in their own words - and not in the attorney general's summary of their work, as turned out to be the case".
A meeting of the House Judiciary Committee resulted in a party-line 24 to 17 vote to authorize a subpoena of special counsel Robert Mueller's report of his investigation and all the underlying evidence from Attorney General William Barr.
Barr issued a four-page summary March 24 of the Mueller report and its investigation into allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the election in Trump's favor.
Barr told Congress in a letter last week that he must redact material presented to a grand jury, as required by law, as well as information that could reveal us intelligence agencies' sources and methods.
After some officials close to US Attorney General William Barr complained anonymously to the media that his summary of the Mueller report sent to Congress mischaracterized its implications for the president, the media decided a scandal was afoot.
Democrat Dan Kildee, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said Congress was requesting Trump's tax documents from the IRS because "The president is the only person who can sign bills into law, and the public deserves to know whether the president's personal financial interests affect his public decision making".
"But if that doesn't work out, in a very short order we will issue the subpoenas", he said.

Soon after Mueller concluded his report, Trump told reporters in the Oval Office it "wouldn't bother me at all" if the report was made public.
In another development, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee, led by Trump critic Adam Schiff, is seeking an interview with and documents from a top organiser on Trump's inaugural committee. Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec disputed this claim in a statement that was included in the Post's article, but not the Times'. Some Democrats have also indicated they wish to see Mueller testify to Congress, which would allow lawmakers to question him about Barr's letter. Most of the documents were provided, however, and Harriett Miers, the former White House counsel under President George W. Bush, had to testify under oath, but in a closed, transcribed hearing.
Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said he would give Barr more time to "change his mind".
Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, who have been defending Trump throughout the Mueller investigation, decried the Democrat majority's actions as perpetuating fabricated claims created to undermine Trump and his presidency.
Despite Barr's determination that he was not fully exonerated by Mueller's report, Trump has boasted that he has been fully cleared of any wrongdoing in the probe.
Trump ally Lindsey Graham, Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote on Twitter that the House panel's demand for classified information and grand jury testimony was "dangerous and ridiculous".
