Congresswoman Robin Kelly's Statement on the Mueller Hearing
Congresswoman Robin Kelly, member of the National Security Oversight subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the testimony of Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees:
"Today, the American people had a chance to hear directly from Special Counsel Mueller about the results on his intensive investigation into President Trump.
After reviewing the report and hearing the testimony, the only correct response to the President's actions and abuses is impeachment.
The Mueller Report clearly lays out multiple instances of obstruction of justice carried out by President Trump. He tried to end the investigation; he abused his powers; he tried to fire Special Counsel Mueller; and he tried, repeatedly, to hide his crimes from the American people.
Were it not for OLC guidance, which I find flawed and overly restrictive, the President would have been indicted on multiple obstruction of justice charges because he committed crimes and abused his power.
Furthermore, it shows that the President and Attorney General's favorite line, "no collusion, no obstruction," is a bold-faced lie, one of many others that they've gleefully told to the American people before TV cameras.
No one, not even the President, is above the law. House Democrats will keep our promise to the American people to hold the President accountable for his actions, including obstructing justice."
