Debate on Mueller report grows

2 NEWS Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON (WDTN) – The Mueller investigation may be over, but the debate over the findings continues on Capitol Hill. Six House committee chairs sent a letter Monday night, requesting that the Attorney General submit the full report to Congress by next week.

President Trump was still venting Monday over Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“We can never let this happen to another president again,” he said.

The Justice Department reported to Congress that Mueller found no evidence the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in 2016.

Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley says it’s time to move on.

“What we heard for two years was that there was collusion. We spent 41 million dollars, there was no collusion,” he says.

But some Congressional Democrats say not so fast.

They say the special counsel did not completely exonerate the President and they want to see Mueller’s full report for themselves.

“We need to get the Mueller report. So let’s get the report and read it,” says Rep. Jamie Raskin.

“Until we get the follow report released and until we get all of the information that surrounds that, I don’t think we should be jumping to any conclusions,” says Rep. Katie Hill.

But Vice President Mike Pence says he’s certain Mueller’s report will reassure voters.

“This was a total vindication of the President and our campaign,” says Pence.

Attorney General William Barr is promising to release as much of the report as he can.
