St. Petersburg, FL – Yesterday Congress got their first look at the report crafted by Robert Mueller. It did not take long for the members to pour through the 448 pages and draw some very strong conclusions.
News Talk Florida was provided with a statement from Congressman Charlie Crist who just this week became a key member of the DCCC. The Democrat who represents St. Petersburg did not mince words about his thoughts on the report
Here is his statement on the public release of the Mueller Report by the Department of Justice.
“The Mueller Report makes clear that the Trump campaign knowingly trafficked in emails stolen by Russian operatives and channeled by Wikileaks for the purpose of winning the 2016 election. Those actions may not be criminal, but they are highly unethical.
“It is also clear the President attempted to obstruct the Mueller investigation for fear it would undermine his presidency. Special Counsel Mueller remained neutral on whether those actions were criminal, leaving it to Congress to decide on the appropriate course.
“The actions of the President as documented in the Mueller report are unprecedented, and cause for serious concern. I will be discussing the report with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, and look forward to hearings in the coming weeks that will further flesh out the issues at stake.”
