WASHINGTON (AP) – House Republicans say Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday uncovered no meaningful new information and that it’s time to move on.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that “this should be the end of the chapter that we put America through.”
The former special counsel testified before two Democratic-led committees that his two-year probe into Russian election interference did not exonerate President Donald Trump on obstruction. The report described in detail 11 instances of potential obstruction, including Trump’s attempts to restrain the investigation and have Mueller removed as special counsel.
But Republicans say Mueller did not find guilt, either. McCarthy suggests that people think about what he calls “this poor president” and what he has gone through.
Ohio Republican Jim Jordan says, “It’s definitely time to move on.”
