Pelosi and Schumer Just Dropped The Hammer On Any Barr Mueller Report Collusion With Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer released a joint statement warning President Trump‘s handpicked Attorney General that he must make Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report 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. Attorney General 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.

“The Special Counsel’s investigation focused on questions that go to the integrity of our democracy itself: whether foreign powers corruptly interfered in our elections, and whether unlawful means were used to hinder that investigation. The American people have a right to the truth. The watchword is transparency.”

Trump handpicked AG Barr for just this moment.

Mueller does not complain of interference from Barr as of yet, but of course Barr wasn’t hired to interfere in the report. Trump has used other methods and fired other people for refusing to do so.

Barr was picked to bury this report.

And so Democrats are coming out both barrels to insist it be made public, as it should be. Mueller’s report is a matter of national security and our country’s sovereignty.

If Donald Trump conspired with Russia, of course he did so publicly but I mean in a legally actionable way, we all need to know about it.
