“The report presented very substantial evidence the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. We need to let Mueller present those facts to the American people,” the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And then see where we go from there.”
“I believe when people hear what was in the Mueller report we’ll be in a position to be holding the president accountable and make this less of a lawless administration,” he added.
Rep. Al Green, Texas Democrat, attempted to force the party to vote on impeachment last week, and 94 other Democrats sided with him in fighting against a motion to kill his articles.
However, Mr. Mueller has said he doesn’t plan on elaborating on his 448-page report.
“The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress,” he said in a press conference a few months ago.
Meanwhile, Republicans plan to get into the controversy surrounding Mr. Mueller’s team and alleged misconduct in the FBI.
Mr. Nadler dismissed Republicans’ approach, saying, “If they want to debate, or discuss I should say, this irrelevancy, let them waste their time.”
