Al Sharpton Enrages Leftists with Just 2 Words on Mueller Report
Al Sharpton Enrages Leftists with Just 2 Words on Mueller Report Rev. Al Sharpton said that if the Democratic Party wants to rebound after the “clear victory” special counsel Robert Mueller handed President Donald Trump, it has to leave the issue of Russia behind. Sharpton’s comments came after reports out of Washington that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to shift the focus of House Democrats away from Trump as other high-profile Democrats, who staked their reputations on charging Trump, call for more investigations of the president “The Democrats also now have to move on and really deal with hard issues,” Sharpton said on MSNBC Sunday night, hours after Attorney General William Barr shared a letter with Congress that said Mueller found no collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, has promised further investigations of Trump. However, Republicans may also keep the issue alive, if only to focus on what they believe are the shaky foundations for investigating Trump — foundations that were laid during the waning days of the Obama administration. Although Democrats control the House, Republicans control the Senate and have the ability to launch competing investigations of subjects the House is also probing.
