Byrne: Curtain Closes on Democrats’ Mueller Theater and Impeachment Fantasy
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) released the following statement after the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees.
Byrne said: “Democrats’ last desperate attempt to change the narrative on the Mueller report and generate support for their delusional impeachment fantasy landed with a thud. I’ve read the Mueller report cover to cover, and there was no collusion and no obstruction. Today's hearings should once and for all clear President Trump and his campaign.
“As the curtain closes on today’s carefully orchestrated theater production, now is the time to turn to the important questions regarding the origins and acceleration of this investigation during the Obama administration—and why more disturbing investigations into Secretary Clinton were squashed. I renew my call on Congress to pass my bill to investigate the investigators and make sure this never happens again.”
In May, Byrne introduced the Investigate the Investigators Act of 2019, H.R. 3028, to begin an investigation of the questionable origins of the Russia investigation and ensure no similar partisan investigations happen again. The bill calls for a formal Department of Justice investigation into all the actions taken during the 2016 presidential election as it relates to federal investigations regarding President Trump and Secretary Clinton and requires an automatic and independent oversight investigation anytime an investigation of a federal political campaign is opened by the DOJ in the future.
