As Donald Trump announced win following the results of special counsel Roberts Mueller’s investigation, Democrats displays no signs of backing down from various legal queries encircling the president and his associates.
On the completion of the highly expected Mueller report, led to an intense debate in Washington over the approach of proceeding as Democrats stated a summary of its discoveries by the attorney general, William Barr, “raises as many questions as it answers”, though it likely laid the concern of collusion with Russia strictly to rest.
Since managing the House of Representatives, Democrats have introduced an onslaught of investigations into the president, his family business and his admiration.
Hence, it arrived as an undeniable blow to Democrats that Mueller’s report was not able to seek that the Trump campaign conspire with Moscow to oscillate the 2016 election, or create a more firm conclusion whether the president is even engaged in any sort of criminal activity.
But as Trump and his supporter took action on the account to misleading claim “total exoneration”, Democrats indicated the political and legal battle lines were far from resolved, specifically when it came upon Barr’s decision not to continue the obstruction of justice issue.
Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House judiciary committee, declared he is likely to summon Barr, who was assured as Trump’s attorney general previously this year, to testify on Capitol Hill as Democrats find more answers from the summary of the approximately two-year federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
In a four-page letter written to Congress, Barr stated Mueller’s report was not able seek any criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow during the year 2016 presidential election. But it was inconclusive on the queries of whether the president obstructed justice.
“It’s a shame that our country has had to go through this,” a defiant Trump added. “To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this.”
Democrats nonetheless asks the release of the entire Mueller report, while recommending Barr’s discoveries could not be relied given his earlier criticism of the special counsel investigation.
“The fact that Special Counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay,” the Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.
“Given Mr Barr’s public record of bias against the special counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.”
