House Dem Just Challenged Trump’s Attempt To Block Them From Accessing Full Mueller Report: ‘We Won’t Accept That!’
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) appeared on CNN on Wednesday following Donald Trump’s attempt to block Congress from accessing the full Mueller report using his “executive privilege.”
The Democratic Congresswoman said that they will not stand for Trump’s tactics and they will be holding Attorney General William Barr in contempt.
“They’re throwing every obstacle in our way because the president has in many respects become a dictator,” Speier said. “He is trying to prevent Congress from doing its oversight action, and we won’t accept that.”
Speier said Democrats were moving forward with a contempt vote to turn up the “heat” on the administration.
“There’s no question that holding him in contempt will then throw it to the courts and we will have to hope that will be expedited,” she said. “But Congress has the right to access the underlying documents of the Mueller report. There’s no question about that.”
