They want Robert Mueller, the man who collated the report, to publicly testify before congress about the work he has done.
It comes after a redacted version of the document was released on Thursday.
WE CANNOT TAKE ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR’S WORD FOR IT. WE MUST READ THE FULL MUELLER REPORT, AND THE UNDERLYING EVIDENCE. THIS IS ABOUT TRANSPARENCY AND ENSURING ACCOUNTABILITY.
Mr Trump’s legal team has said it completely exonerates the president.
But while the report does say the president did not collude with the Russians, it did not come to a firm conclusion on the issue of obstruction of justice.
It also reveals several occasions when Mr Trump tried to hinder the investigation itself – including attempting to have Mr Mueller removed.
What’s in the report?
What do Democrats say?
The 448-page redacted document is the result of a 22-month investigation by Mr Mueller, who was appointed to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
Mr Mueller’s report says he found no criminal conspiracy between Mr Trump’s campaign and Russia, but could not reach a concrete legal conclusion on whether Mr Trump tried to obstruct the investigation.
Democrat congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in a joint statement said the report painted a “disturbing picture of a president who has been weaving a web of deceit, lies and improper behaviour”.
The party has begun moves to try to obtain the full, unredacted document and to have Mr Mueller testify before Congress.
We cannot take Attorney General Barr’s word for it. We must read the full Mueller report, and the underlying evidence. This is about transparency and ensuring accountability.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier told the BBC that Mr Mueller had “basically tossed the ball to Congress and said, ‘you need to pursue obstruction of justice here’.”
Mr Barr held a news conference before the report was made public in which he backed the president.
