Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said Monday that Congress must see special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report before making a decision on whether to seek impeachment charges against President Donald Trump.
Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released a summary of Mueller’s report, concluding that the special counsel “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”
Klobuchar told “CBS This Morning” the next day that although impeachment is up to House Democrats, “they cannot make the decision until we have the entire report. Four hundred and twenty members of the House voted that that report should be public, and that hasn't happened.
She added that Barr’s summary "leaves open a lot of questions, like saying that the report sets out evidence 'on both sides of the question' and, 'it does not exonerate him,' meaning the president. So to me, if I'm in the House looking at that question, I want to see the whole report, and certainly the public wants to see the report. Nearly 90 percent of the public has said that they want to see the report."
Co-host Bianna Golodryga then asked if Barr’s letter puts Democrats in a difficult position.
"Americans understand how important the Constitution is to garner individual freedoms," Klobuchar said. "I think the point here is they want to see what happened and the most important reason they ask it is because they want to have an election free of an invasion by a foreign power. And that shouldn't be forgotten here.”
