Rep. Jordan: Dems Can't Accept That the Mueller Report Isn't the Bombshell They Hoped It Would Be
Rep. Jim Jordan said Democrats are desperate to use Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report to undermine President Trump, despite Mueller finding no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In a four-page letter to Congress last month, Attorney General William Barr said Mueller did not uncover evidence of collusion and reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice during the investigation. Barr has said he will release a redacted version of the report by mid-April.
Despite that, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) announced plans to vote this week to authorize subpoenas to obtain the full Mueller report. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has also called for the full report to be made public and doubled down on his claim that Trump and his administration colluded with foreign powers.
"This is where they're at because the Mueller report was not the bombshell that they had hoped it would be," Jordan (R-Ohio) said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday. "But when you have the head of the Intelligence Committee, the head of the Judiciary Committee saying make public material that's not supposed to get public, that's not consistent with the law, that's just wrong, just plain wrong."
He explained that Mueller's report contains classified material or personal information about unindicted individuals, and that must be redacted from the report before it is made available to Congress.
He lamented that Democrats are so focused on "getting at this president" that they won't accept Mueller's findings, do what's best for the country and move on.
