For many months, the Dems wagged their fingers at the President and his supporters as he slammed the probe as a “witch hunt.” From politicians to the mainstream media, the left warned that Mueller would finally nail President Trump and now that it appears he has failed to follow the party narrative, Democrats are calling for an emergency response.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer issued a statement slamming Attorney General Barr and his “regrettably partisan handling” of the Mueller report – hours before the attorney general even held a news conference on the impending release of the report.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff issued a formal letter to Robert Mueller.
Even before the report’s release on Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler had already asked Mueller to appear before his committee “as soon as possible.”
“We cannot take Attorney General Barr’s word for it. We must read the full Mueller report, and the underlying evidence. This is about transparency and ensuring accountability,” the Democrat added.
Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, who just launched a 2020 primary challenge against the President, also decided to join the mob.
“Confidence in our leaders and in our institutions is at the heart of our democracy,” Weld wrote in a statement that was tweeted Thursday. “That confidence has been shaken. It is essential that Special Counsel Bob Mueller come before Congress and address the validity of his report that has been redacted and released. Is this the report he issued?”
“Are these the conclusions to which he came or has the report been altered in any way? Was he pressured to remove or change anything?” he continued.
Trump reacted in epic fashion on Thursday, slamming “radical Dems and haters” while declaring “Game Over” in a tweet.
Reactions poured in from the Democrats over the report and demanding Mueller to testify, as many noted how it will “never be enough” for the bloodthirsty Democrats.
“What you’re seeing is unprecedented desperation from the left. They went all in on a collusion conspiracy that never existed, didn’t get the result they wanted, and now they’re throwing manufactured controversies at the wall to see if anything sticks. It won’t work.” posted Mark Meadows on Twitter.
“It would be a miscarriage of justice to use cherry-picked bits of information from the report to sow further divisiveness and spread conspiracies that serve only to undermine our democratic institutions.” Rep. Jim Jordan tweeted.
“I watched AG Barr’s news conference. I’m going to read the report myself. I’m sick of this witch hunt…it’s over Nancy, give it up.” said another tweet.
“Is it perhaps too presumptuous to say that we will look back at 11:00 today, April 18, 2019, as the moment President Donald Trump won the 2020 Election?” said another.
