Schumer, McConnell address Mueller report on Senate floor
Mar 26, 2019, 00:57
President Donald Trump, cleared by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of conspiring with Russian Federation in the 2016 US election, on Monday vented his anger at the inquiry and vowed investigations into unnamed political enemies who did "evil" and "treasonous things".
Attorney General William Barr released a four-page letter summarizing the key findings of the report on Sunday.
Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, concluded the investigation's evidence "is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offence". Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota even filmed a short video of herself standing in front of the Department of Justice, demanding the report be released in full.
Mueller's investigation, which began shortly after Trump's sudden decision to fire former FBI director James Comey, has led to felony charges against 34 people, including six Trump associates and advisers, and three entities, triggering firestorms of criticism from the president and his political allies. They are demanding the full release of the Mueller report to determine what else the special counsel found, and they appear intent to continue investigating ties between Trump and Russian Federation.
"Attorney General Barr's letter raises as many questions as it answers".
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders says President Donald Trump will let the attorney general decide whether the special counsel's Russian Federation report should be publicly released, though she adds that "he's more than happy for any of this stuff to come out".
"Our determination was made without regard to, and is not based on, the constitutional considerations that surround the indictment and criminal prosecution of a sitting president".
Schiff, Nadler and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings issued a joint statement Sunday that noted Mueller declined to prosecute on a conspiracy to join with Russia's "online disinformation and hacking and dissemination efforts", while arguing they still need to know more from Mueller's report and underlying evidence.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, in a on a conference call with reporters, called on Washington to make the first move to reset ties and repeated Moscow's denial of any interference in USA elections and internal affairs or those of any other country.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr released his summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the just-ended Russian Federation investigation on Sunday, evoking different reactions from Washington while setting the stage for new political fights.
The special counsel did rule out what had been a more bombshell-inducing allegation - that the president and his campaign aides actively colluded with Moscow to tilt the election away from Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The Republican president pledged new investigations but did not specify who would conduct them or who should be targeted.
Russia's foreign ministry criticized Mueller's investigation in a Monday statement as a waste of time and resources, and said the accusation of Russian interference was an "obvious fake".
The end of the Mueller inquiry did not spell the end of the investigative pressure on Trump.
