Democrats didn’t get what they wanted from the Special Counsel investigation. President Donald Trump wasn’t indicted or impeached. The 2016 election wasn’t overturned due to collusion. Hillary Clinton still isn’t president.

So, what’s the party to do when it doesn’t get its way? Demand Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress.

Top Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for special counsel Robert Mueller to testify “as soon as possible” before Congress about his office’s report regarding Russian involvement in the 2016 race.

Additionally, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York set a deadline of “no later than May 23” in a letter to Mueller.

The requests came the same day at Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of the Mueller report to the public.

In a news conference from the Justice Department prior to the report’s release, Barr reiterated the conclusions of the report, which he had addressed in a four page summary of it issued on March 24.

“(T)he Special Counsel’s report did not find any evidence that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with the campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its hacking operations,” Barr said on Thursday. “In other words, there was no evidence of Trump campaign ‘collusion’ with the Russian government’s hacking.”

Barr also addressed allegations that President Donald Trump sought to obstruction justice during the course of the Mueller investigation.

“As I addressed in my March 24th letter, the Special Counsel did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment regarding this allegation,” the attorney general said. “Instead, the report recounts ten episodes involving the president and discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.”

“After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers, the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the Special Counsel is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense,” Barr said.

The DOJ head was asked about Mueller’s absence from the news conference, given it was his report.

“It’s not (his report),” Barr answered. “It’s a report he did for me as the attorney general. He is required under the regulation to provide me with a confidential report. I’m here to discuss my response to that report, and my decision, entirely discretionary to make it public.”

In a joint statement on Thursday, Pelosi and Schumer said, “Attorney General [William] Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality.”

“We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible,” they continued. “The American people deserve to hear the truth.”

Nadler tweeted a copy of a letter he wrote to Mueller requesting his appearance before the Judiciary Committee “no later than May 23.”

“It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings,” he wrote.

    The Democrats don’t have a clue of how badly their party is viewed. Trump will win in a 50 state landslide in 2020 and the Democrat Party will cease to exist.

      I have no doubt Trump will win because Democrats are truly showing themselves to be the spawn of Satan. Still, I will pray to God that he will keep Blessing America as people open their eyes and return to God’s grace because if that doesn’t happen God has no reason to continue blessing this sinful nation. A 50 state landslide…That’s a lot of people to wake up.

      Dream on. BTW: Is there some reason not to investigate the former owner and operator of Trump University who has said that he believes Vladimir Putin and the Saudi Arabian crown prince and who has not shown his tax returns (while every other candidate for president since Nixon has done so voluntarily) and who was not charged with obstruction mainly because eight of his associates REFUSED to carry out his orders.

    WE the people chose Trump to be our President. Congress has no right to go behind us and say that they do not accept our choice of President. They have no right to remove him. It is not up to them who will be President. The people make that choice, not them. They need to back off and deal with it.

    I forgot. What is it that the Democrats are supposed to do? I thought it was to help make policies, laws, improve the country as a whole, pretty much like the Republicans are supposed to do. You know, serve the people. Right?

    SO…what have they done professionally as a whole? Nothing? At all?

    “So, what’s the party to do when it doesn’t get its way? Demand Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress.”

    In other words, waste more time and tax dollars getting absolutely nothing done.

    I’m just looking forward to the 2020 election so we can get even more of these people out!

    An investigation should be done into the Demorats. When are the voting public going to say enough of this trash. When will the gutless Republicans going to do something about this? I have to wonder if the Republicans are going along with this trash. Where are they? It is time for a third party. The Democrats, as well as the Republicans aren’t doing a dam thing. Come on Republicans you useless POS. Do something. What the he’ll is wrong with you idiots? If you are waiting for the Democrats to get Trump on something? We the people will take care of both parties. I wish we could still tar, and feather you dirt bags. Maybe it’s time to start doing that again? And don’t tell me it’s not civil. Is the garbage both parties are pulling on the American people civil?

    When are the Democrats going to stop wasting the peoples monies and start doing their job of balancing the budget and protecting the American people? Anyone in a job that did not do their job would have been fired by now.

    Nadler, Schiff,Waters, etc are an absolute disgrace. Get back to the business of the American people… None of us want additional investigations. You’ve already wasted millions of our tax dollars! Term limits!

    Those two cumstains were not voted into office to waste time trying to impeach anyone and they’re damned sure not doing the job that they’re being paid for( by our tax dollars) they should both be removed from office. As far as I’m concerned they should both be tried for treason and hanged!

    STAND STRONG, MR. PRESIDENT! These Democrats are a pathetic lot, feeding off each other and the press, and the press feeding off them. Both factions have lost so much credibility that will take years to regain. The Democratic Party may become the Socialist Party and then we will be involved in something akin to a civil war. So be it.
    November of 2020 will show the Democrats how far behind they are falling.

    They are too busy trying to impeach President Trump while our Country is being invaded by illegals. Maybe this is their plan distracting Americans from the real problem our borders.

    Hey Chucky, the American people believe the results of a 2 1/2 year investigation by someone hand picked and fully approved of by all Dems, now you don’t believe your own boy! Stop already and how about getting something done while in office.

    Just confirmed my suspicion that the Democratic party is no longer a party for the people. They are to mentally unstable for me to want any of them making decisions that impact Americans.

    • Michael

      April 18, 2019 at 8:33 pm

      Shari, they never were. Just look at history. They are the party who the KKK came out of. They are the party who fought in favor of keeping slavery and also wanted to keep schools segregated. They’re nothing but crooked, phony, liars, and they always have been. They were never the party of the people, they just told everyone they were, but actions speak louder than words.

  27. Shari Early

    April 18, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    And when this is over can the citizens sue these idiots for the return of the taxes wasted on them trying to convict Republicans when it was the Democrats guilty of collusion? We need to see if we can file a class action suit against the Democratic party for around $50 mil.

    Soooooo, when Mueller says what has already been reported, are they going to accuse Mueller of partisanship? I bet they won’t believe Mueller either.

    Notice how the Dems are not mentioning how THEY lied to obtain the FISA warrant? this alone is treason and there is much, much more. Attempting to overthrow our present form government is as bad as it gets.
    Don’t think they are giving up, far from it, they will continue to attack Trump as long as he is President. Nothing is going to stop them ! Not even a civil war/revolution.

    Their selfish thirst for Power & Control has consumed their little Communist Brains!

    I’m tired of Democrats trying to make something out of nothing, Lying to the American People, and using Nazi
    tactics ( Take Our Money Green Deal) , trying to Over Power anyone that disagrees with them and using this On American People. We see you are Control Freak Nazi’s Enough is Enough!! Stop!!!

    Those degenerates have been after him ever since they found that crooked Hillary had lost!! They were talking about impeachment almost the same night!! Then they paid for that phony dossier, hoping (in their demented minds) that they would have the “goods” to get rid of him, holding onto the delusion that if they could get rid of him, they could stick Hillary in his place. Well, it doesn’t work like that. Then they stuck the mental case Nancy in as Speaker, even though they knew that she was the evil one that shoved Obamacare down our throats, even after we kept saying that we didn’t want it. With those monsters, the will of the people is never considered, and never has been their goal. Trump needs to declare martial law, then order the mass arrest of every democommie who holds office, on both the federal and state level. Then he needs to arrest and deport every single moooslum and deport them, as they all read from the same satanic book that calls for the death of each of us if we don’t bow to their evil cult. Then he needs to arrest and deport every illegal that is in our prison system, and all the illegals who have been waving their country’s flag while holding their hand out for our free tax dollars. Once he cleans out the contents-of-an-outhouse from our country, then we can return to life as we love it, without all the seditionists and anarchists who are trying to overthrow our form of government.

    It’s obvious from this action by Pelosi, et. al., that the House and Senate Democrats can’t read for themselves! What do they need: a coloring book version of the Mueller Report? Something along the lines of “Dick and Jane” that their infantile brains can comprehend? Hillary lost. Get over it! Find something more productive to do with your time like addressing veteran homelessness or the crisis at the border!

    I agree that people had better not slack off the next election, everyone needs to vote so Trump will win by a truly historical record landslide which would send an incredibly loud & clear message to the demonrat assholes. And vote every last one of those losers out. And I hope to God our next president we elect in ’24 will be yet another republican.
