Democrats had so hoped the Mueller report would lead to some sort of indictment against President Trump — and his eventual removal from office — that they’ve been utterly devastated by the fact the report came back devoid of any evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, which apparently is something they aren’t willing to accept.
Now Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer are demanding that Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress. Yes, that’s right, folks. These two are still holding out hope that there’s more to this report that will lead to end of Trump’s presidency.
“Attorney General [William] Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning – hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it – have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote in a statement.take our poll - story continues below
“We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible,” the continued. “The American people deserve to hear the truth.”

The question to ask here is what, exactly, do Democrats want to hear from Mueller? If he testifies, he’s likely going to agree with his own report, which is that no one in the Trump campaign, including the president, colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary in 2016.
Are they going to accept that outcome or slander Mueller as being partisan? These folks do not want to hear the truth. They have their ears plugged like a child, hoping that if they keep prodding this dead horse it will come back to life and give them a good old-fashioned neigh.
It isn’t. It’s been beaten to death. A two year investigation — that costs millions of tax dollars — has proven there was no collusion. Time to get over it.
