Chuck Schumer’s reaction to the Mueller report will leave you speechless
There has not been a more widely anticipated event in Washington, D.C. in recent memory than the release of Robert Mueller’s final report.
This is the day the fake news media and Democrats long pointed to as the death knell for Donald Trump’s Presidency.
But that all got turned on its head, and Chuck Schumer’s reaction to the Mueller report will leave you speechless.
Schumer and Pelosi were furious when Attorney General William Barr announced he would hold a press conference to outline the main findings of the Mueller report.
They claimed this was a cover up and demanded Robert Mueller testify.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement on Thursday ahead of the release of the Robert Mueller report demanding that the special counsel testify before Congress.
“Attorney General [William] Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” the statement said.
Democrats and the media pushed the narrative that Attorney General Barr was somehow trying to set up a narrative for the report’s release by holding a press conference ahead of time.
After the Mueller Report was finally released, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler took up Schumer and Pelosi’s cue and demanded Mueller testify before his committee.
Americans could tell the Mueller report was a bust because, instead of latching onto the findings, Democrats wanted Mueller to explain himself.
That’s because Mueller found no evidence of Russian collusion and brought no charges for obstruction of justice.
Rather than accept reality and move on, Democrats need to keep this story alive so they can deploy it as a political weapon in the 2020 campaign.
