Robert Mueller

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave a press conference today on his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections in the United States and alleged collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia, and both Democrats and Republicans claimed victory.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Special Counsel Mueller made a press statement reiterating the extent of Russian efforts to disrupt our elections and that President Trump was not exonerated of obstructing the Trump-Russia investigation:

“It is with the greatest respect for Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the deepest disappointment in the Department of Justice holding the President above the law, that I thank Special Counsel Mueller for the work he and his team did to provide a record for future action both in the Congress and in the courts regarding the Trump Administration involvement in Russian interference and obstruction of the investigation.

“Special Counsel Mueller made clear that he did not exonerate the President when he stated, ‘If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’ He stated that the decision not to indict stemmed directly from the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted. Despite Department of Justice policy to the contrary, no one is above the law – not even the President.

“The Special Counsel’s report revealed that the President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election, and laid out eleven instances of the President’s obstruction of the investigation. The Congress holds sacred its constitutional responsibility to investigate and hold the President accountable for his abuse of power.

“The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy. The American people must have the truth. We call upon the Senate to pass H.R. 1, the For The People Act, to protect our election systems.

“We salute Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team for his patriotic duty to seek the truth.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, however, haha different take on Muller’s performance.

“The Special Counsel has completed the investigation, closed his office, and has closed the case,” Sanders said Wednesday. “Mr. Mueller explicitly said that he has nothing to add beyond the report, and therefore, does not plan to testify before Congress. The report was clear—there was no collusion, no conspiracy—and the Department of Justice confirmed there was no obstruction. Special Counsel Mueller also stated that Attorney General Barr acted in good faith in his handling of the report. After two years, the Special Counsel is moving on with his life, and everyone else should do the same.”

President Trump tweeted, “Nothing changes from the Mueller Report. There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”

    The Democratic WITCH HUNT is an American travesty! Weaponizing the FBI, CIA, and NSA to overthrow a sitting President should scare the hell out of all Americans.

    Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch, Page, Struck, and the whole cabal of dirty cops involved should be charged, convicted, and put in jail if found guilty!

    Nancy Pelosi didn’t salute anyone. She couldn’t hit her geriatric ass with both hands if she tried. Besides, she’s probably loaded anyway.

    Mueller’s comment was meant to inflame the libs because afterall he is and always has been Anti-trump. He’s a disgrace! They are actually spitting in the faces of the American people who voted “legally” for Trump.

    “While he made it clear that his investigation is closed, the main takeaway from outgoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s surprise farewell statement to the media Wednesday is that he desperately wanted to take down President Trump, but simply couldn’t find a way to do it.”

    The coup continues! Mueller just passed the coup onto Pelosi! I agree with Lee Farris. The day of reckoning for Mueller, Comey, Obama, Lynch, the Clinton’s and the rest of those that abused the public trust, the political office, the personal powers, favors and wealth is coming! I can’t wait!
