House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) threw a temper tantrum on Friday after Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his final report on the Russia probe.
Mueller is reportedly recommending no further indictments, all but vindicating President Donald Trump on allegations that he colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
“Let’s be specific. This is really good news for a lot of people around Donald Trump. Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Jerome Corsi, the writer who had a draft indictment presented to him by Mueller’s office and they decided not to go forward with this. Let’s be fair here,” CNN's Jeffrey Toobin said on Friday.
In a last-ditch effort, Pelosi and Schumer frantically demanded the full report be made public.
“Now that Special Counsel Mueller has submitted his report to the Attorney General, it is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation and findings to Congress,” the Democrats said in a statement.
The statement added: “”Barr must not give President Trump, his lawyers or his staff any ‘sneak preview’ of Special Counsel Mueller's findings or evidence, and the White House must not be allowed to interfere in decisions about what parts of those findings or evidence are made public.”
One thing is certain: Pelosi and Democrats would attempt to use the report to smear Trump, even if it means twisting the findings.
However, they are framing it as if they are trying to do a public service for the American people.
“The American people have a right to the truth,” the Democrats said. “The watchword is transparency.”
