Levin Sounds Off on Mueller Report: $35 Million, 200 Pages to Say 'No Collusion'
Says 'impeachment report' written for Dems, media.
Mark Levin reacted to the release of the Mueller report in an extended opening monologue on "Life, Liberty & Levin."
He called out Mueller for writing more than 200 pages on a "phony" narrative about Trump-Russia collusion, but never alleging a criminal conspiracy.
"There’s no collusion, says the Special Counsel. That takes one sentence. It doesn't take 200 damn pages! It doesn’t take $35 million dollars," said Levin, arguing the report was written for CNN and MSNBC and for top House Democrats like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler.
The report quickly triggered calls from some Democrats for impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives, specifically over Mueller's findings on possible obstruction of justice by Trump.
Levin said Mueller's findings were essentially an "impeachment report," and the actions of the mainstream media and Democrats are a "disgrace."
"There was no reason to appoint Mueller and Mueller found nothing," he said, arguing that should be the headline, but instead the media is turning to the obstruction of justice narrative.
Levin said the White House could have asserted executive privilege to prevent current and former staffers from talking to Mueller's team, but the president did not.
"He's the only president in modern history who did not once assert any presidential privilege, including executive privilege, to prevent documents or people around him, including his own White House lawyer, from talking to Mueller," said Levin.
The report states that Trump directed then-White House counsel Don McGahn to remove Mueller in June 2017, but McGahn refused the request, later telling an associate that Trump had asked him to do "crazy s***."
