Pelosi Vows to Seek Full Mueller Report: ‘Let's Just Get The Goods’
Democrats said to be concerned with backlash following Trump's vindication
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reassured concerned Democrats Tuesday that the House will endeavor the retrieve the full contents of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report which cleared presdient Donald Trump of colluding with the Russians head of the 2016 election.
Pelosi, D-Calif., in a closed-door meeting Tuesday asked Democrats to “handle this professionally, officially, patriotically, strategically and told them to “be calm” before asking them to “take a deep breath," according to s source present in the room.
The House Speaker added, “Let’s just get the goods,” referring to the full Mueller report.
Democrats expressed anger flowing the four-page summary of the Mueller report provided to Congress by Barr.
Pelosi and other Democrats have expressed they are skeptical about the summary and said they want to read the report in its entirety in order to find any wrongdoing by Trump.
“We have to see the report,” Pelosi told Democrats.
“We cannot make a judgment on the basis of an interpretation by a man who was hired for this job because he believes the president is above the law. And he wrote a 19-page memo to demonstrate that.”
“Some people are viewing it as a glass-half-full, glass-half-empty,” Pelosi told Democrats.
“I think half-full.”
Former Clinton advisor Mark Penn warned Monday that Democrats must accept that special counsel Robert Mueller's report and move on, or face a voter "backlash" in the 2020 election
Speaking to "Fox & Friends," the political strategist said he worked with Bill Clinton on his impeachment proceedings in 1998, and after it was over, Americans didn't want to hear any more about it.“
The question is will America say the same thing or will Democrats keep pushing this as though they need to do an investigation even bigger than the Mueller investigation, which is impossible given the resources that he had,” said Penn, who also advised Hillary Clinton during her presidential runs.
