House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hit back at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday and said, ‘The Russia case is not closed.’
McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, defended Trump and AG Bill Barr from rabid Democrats using Mueller’s report to smear and attack the President and said, “case closed!”
Pelosi hit back at McConnell Tuesday and said, “That’s just not a fact. The case is not closed.”
In a talk at Cornell’s Institute of Politics and Global Affairs, Pelosi said Congress “would be delinquent” if it failed to pursue its constitutional duty of oversight, reported the Associated Press.
Pelosi added, “It’s about protecting our democracy.”
The Speaker also said on Tuesday that ‘Trump is goading us to impeach him,’ although she has previously stayed away from impeachment talk of the president.
McConnell on Tuesday accused Dems and “TV talking heads” of peddling Russian collusion conspiracy theories.
“The special counsel’s finding is clear — case closed! Case closed,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.
McConnell said the Democrats are “angry that the legal system won’t magically undo the 2016 election for them and they’ve opted to channel all of their partisan anger onto the attorney general.”
Speaker Pelosi and House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler led the charge against Bill Barr and accused the attorney general of committing crime when he lied to Congress.
McConnell, who refers to himself as the “grim reaper” and vowed to stop the left’s Socialist agenda, will not move forward with impeachment so the Democrats are just screaming at the sky.
