I happen to have Wednesdays off and I watched all seven hours of Mr. (Robert) Mueller’s testimonies before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 24.
We’ve been lied to about the Mueller Report. I’ve read it myself and I am glad Congress and Mr. Mueller helped more Americans hear the truth by discussing the findings on TV. Many Virginians don’t know, for instance, that then-candidate Trump was actively negotiating to build a Trump Tower in Moscow while he was lying to the public, saying over and over again he had “no deals in Russia.”
He and members of his campaign asked for, welcomed, accepted and used Russia’s assistance during the campaign, although no one in Trump’s campaign assisted in the Russian attacks. Trump engaged in ten obstructive acts regarding the investigation into Russia’s interference in our election. Mueller is by policy not allowed to indict a sitting president regardless of the misconduct he found. These are the major findings of the Mueller Report.
Mr. Mueller’s report and his sworn testimony states that Russia specifically targeted the Clinton campaign and aided the Trump campaign. The former Special Counsel, combat-decorated United States Marine Corps veteran, Robert S. Mueller III, also told us under oath that the Russians are still today attacking us “even as we sit here today.”
I call upon my representative, Rob Wittman (R, Va.-1) to publicly state whether he approves of the conduct of Donald J. Trump as it is described in the Mueller Report. As constituents, we deserve to know Mr. Wittman’s answer to this question.
I also call upon Mr. Wittman to demand that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stop blocking the House’s bills to beef up security in the 2020 election, or else, to explain to us why he refuses to protect us from ongoing hostile foreign interference.
