On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a meeting with Congressional Democrats. The meeting in question revolved around the recent end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia investigation.
A Full Overview of the Congressional Meeting
Pelosi’s letter to Democrats in Congress reads as follows:
Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ). While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.
The letter continues by Pelosi noting that she and Schumer urged Attorney General Barr to turn over the results of the report to Congress.
Leader Schumer and I yesterday issued a joint statement reiterating Democrats’ call for transparency, stating that, “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.”
The excerpt from the letter reads as follows:
Our six distinguished Committee chairs of jurisdiction also stated their call for transparency in a joint statement available here. This transparency is even more urgent because of Attorney General Barr’s letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees yesterday in which he writes, “I am reviewing the report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise [the Judiciary Committee Chairs and Ranking Members] of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.” We are insisting that any briefings to any Committees be unclassified so that Members can speak freely about every aspect of the report and not be confined to what DOJ chooses to release publicly.
Pelosi then announced that she urged the Justice Department to turn over the findings of the Mueller investigation to the people of this country:
Even if DOJ chooses not to prosecute additional individuals, the underlying findings must be provided to Congress and the American people. The Attorney General’s offer to provide the Committees with a summary of the report’s conclusions is insufficient. Congress requires the full report and the underlying documents so that the Committees can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues the Mueller report may raise.
The American people deserve the truth. I have great confidence in our Committee Chairs and Members to honor our Congressional responsibility For the People.
Thank you for your leadership.
More on Reactions to the End of the Mueller Probe
Pelosi’s meeting with Congressional Democrats comes as various people across the country weigh in on the end of the Mueller investigation. As it turns out, many on the left are having a tough time with accepting that no additional indictments will follow the Russia investigation. Countless Democrats were expecting the president to be found guilty of collusion and face impeachment. At long last, it’s been determined that this isn’t going to happen and leftists simply can’t stand it.
No matter how many meetings Democrats hold, it won’t change the fact that Trump did not collude with the Russian government. The end of the Mueller probe comes as the 2020 presidential election is right around the corner. All in all, it will be quite interesting to see what new thing Democrats attempt to use against the president in order to win the election.
