|Rep. Adam Schiff and President trump
The Department of Justice released special counsel Robert Mueller’s long awaited report on Thursday morning. The report which only included “limited” redactions, according to Attorney General William Barr detailed his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.
President Donald Trump might be claiming vindication with the release of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia report, but House Democrats are moving forward with their investigations of him and people in his orbit. Democrats quickly expressed their dissatisfaction with how much information Attorney General William Barr redacted from the report released Thursday.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) continued to spread Trump-Russia conspiracy theories in a press conference Thursday afternoon just after the release of Mueller’s 448-page report.
According to Schiff: “There was an extensive campaign by the Russians to interfere in our elections in 2016 those efforts were designed to help one party, Donald Trump, but hurt another, Hillary Clinton. Whether these acts are criminal or not, whether the obstruction of justice was criminal or not…they are unquestionably dishonest, unethical, immoral and unpatriotic and should be condemned by every American.
Schiff went on to say: The facts that are now established by this report are damning, The standard cannot simply be that you can do anything you like so long as you can declare at the end of the day, ‘I am not a crook.’ If the special counsel…had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not….The acts of obstruction whether they are criminal or not are deeply alarming. He left that issue to the Congress of the United States, and we will need to consider it.
I wonder why Democrats are so blind to see that Barr and Rosenstein concluded that Trump did not obstruct justice after reviewing Mueller’s ’10 episodes’ of potential obstruction.
