Earlier this evening:
Aaron Rupar @atrupar
Watch Wolf Blitzer corner Rudy Giuliani into admitting he can’t explain why members of the Trump campaign didn’t go to the FBI when Russian agents reached out offering dirt on Hillary Clinton
5:02 PM – 26 Mar 2019
That is a really good question.
And, of course, Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) can’t help herself:
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
(1/2) It’s finally over. After 674 days,$25M tax dollars, 2800+ subpoenas, and conducting nearly 500 search warrants, Mueller concluded there was NO COLLUSION between Russia and @POTUS’s campaign, the President did NOT obstruct justice, and he is NOT charged with any crimes.
7:50 PM – 24 Mar 2019
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
(2/2) The political witch hunt has concluded. It’s time to move on and get back to the business of addressing issues impacting the American people—that’s something we can all agree on.
7:51 PM – 24 Mar 2019
Some of the responses:
I recognize you aren’t a lawyer, but as a lawmaker you should be able to recognize the difference between the end of Mueller’s investigation, but the very real continuation of the SDNY’s investigation into financial crimes.
Unfortunately, for all of us, it is by no means over.
“…while this report does not conclude the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
-literally the words of the 4 page summary.
The prosecution of Manafort put the investigation in the black. $25 million for the investigation, Manafort is on the hook for $46 million. Pretty sure that equals PROFIT?
Learn to read.
Congresswoman you left out all the indictments, the guilty pleas, the fact that campaign chair is in federal prison and in federal court documents the president is referred as Individual 1.
Correction: The #BarrSummary concluded there was no collusion or obstruction while also stating “It does Not exonerate him” from obstruction of justice.
For a #WitchHunt there are an awful lot of people indicted and/or going to prison.
Let’s see the #MuellerReport
He did NOT say no obstruction. This a bald face lie.
It should not be hard to exonerate an innocent person. That in 2 years the special counsel was unable to exonerate the president speaks volumes. Your continued ignorance is a disservice to the 4th district and you should be ashamed of yourself
Paul Manaforts conviction and forfeiture PAID FOR THE WHOLE INVESTIGATION.
And the results don’t “exonerate trump once and for all”, they literally say they DO NOT exonerate him
… and that’s it now up to congress to proceed with subpoenas and charges
Do your job, stop lying.
37 People with criminal charges. including Russians who worked to help Donald Trump get elected.
@POTUS is a vindictive, narcissistic nincompoop and serial liar who praises despots and attacks honorable people who disagree with him or ask for accountability.
Actually you know that mueller stated that the report did not exonerate him. You also know that payments collected far exceed the cost of the investigation. But you won’t tweet that will you?
The investigation may have actually paid for itself based on what was uncovered, but you don’t want to actually talk about that do you, Vicky? You don’t even mention ACTUAL charges (199) brought. Stop. Trying. To. Spin.
You’re a partisan corrupt hack. The report says he is not exonerated. You clearly cannot read.
Not exonerated on the obstructing. Push for the full report to be released or you are a hypocrite, wait we know you are one. #BarrReport #ReleaseTheFullReport
The report does not exonerate Trump from obstruction of justice, according to Barr’s summary.
37 witches, including Russian operatives.
But wait…. I thought @realDonaldTrump just called Mueller an honorable man today? How can an honorable man be in charge of a witch hunt? What a political hack you and the president truly are-both of you!
Just curious…Do you support a release of the entire report? Do you believe Congress should be provided with the evidence that led to the report’s conclusions? Do you support letting the American people decide if the summary document accurately reflects Mueller’s findings?
Do you support releasing the whole report, not just the quick summary by a political appointee? If it completely clears the POTUS, let’s put any doubt to rest – demand the WHOLE report.
I know. 38 indictments are chopped liver. You Trump Republicans are amazing!
They ain’t buying it.
