Yes, absolutely.

I've often made this point to persuade people to stop worrying that all Mueller's evidence will somehow get buried and we won't learn the truth.

Congress can subpoena the grand jury evidence. While the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure impose secrecy. . .

. . . there are exception, particularly where Congress is involved. There are also possibilities, which require lots of hurdles, of a public report coming out of a grand jury.

An easier way to disclose the evidence is just unredact all the documents filed so far . . .

. . . which is in the hands of the courts, a co-equal branch of government.

We have a lot to worry about right now. A lot.

Too often, though, people worry about the wrong stuff, like Trump pardoning everyone, or the truth never coming out . . .

The truth WILL come out. How do I know?

Prosecutors have a duty to foster “public understanding of the problems of controlling crimes. . . ”  https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/28/50.2 

Courts have said prosecutors have a duty to inform the public about investigations.

And Mueller is a pro.
