Sen. Maize Hirono (D-HI) said that the investigation is not over, even if Lindsey Graham wants it to be over, as she called for Mueller to testify.
Sen. Hirono said on MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes, “Obviously it’s not over. Lindsey wants it to be over, but it’s not. For example, during his testimony, Barr kept characterizing the discussions he had with Mueller. That’s called hearsay. I like to hear from Mueller himself as to the conversation and what concerns he had about the four-pager that Barr put out. Mueller was so concern, and he asked Barr to put out the summaries that his team had put together. Barr refused to do that.”
Sen. Hirono told Attorney General Barr to his face that he is a liar, and that he needs to resign. Hirono was correct. Graham has buddied up to Trump, and he is trying to kill the investigation for the president. Lindsey Graham wants this to be over in the worst way, but it’s not over, and it is never going to be over until the American people know the facts about the Trump/Russia relationship and how it impacted the 2016 election.
Democrats are not going to allow a potentially criminal president to walk.
