The release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report following a 22-month investigation into Russian interference of the 2016 presidential election should have resulted in a collective sigh of relief from media and politicians.
But it didn’t, and that’s going to hurt them in the long run — especially in 2020.
Although the report wasn’t a totally flattering portrayal of President Donald Trump, it nonetheless concluded that there was insufficient evidence to conclude that he or anyone in his campaign had colluded with Russia or obstructed justice.
But that didn’t silence the caterwauling coming from Democratic politicians and mainstream media. If anything, it intensified.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., vowed to broaden the investigation. If it wasn’t a witch hunt before, it would soon become one.
He fired off a letter to Mueller, calling for him to testify before the committee, and posted it to social media stating, “After a two year investigation, the public deserves the facts, not Attorney General Barr’s political spin.”
Rep. Eric Swalwell, another California Democrat and a presidential hopeful, called for Attorney General William Barr’s resignation.
