Cheney: Mueller Summary Confirms What GOP Already Knew
CHEYENNE, WY. (AP) — Wyoming’s congresswoman says a summary of an investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s election campaign coordinated with Russia confirms what Republicans already knew.
Attorney General William Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation says there was no collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. Mueller’s full report has not been publicly released.
Wyoming U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney says Democrats for over two years have “peddled falsehoods” and made “one scurrilous claim after another” involving Trump and Russia.
Cheney says in a statement it’s time for Democrats to “put aside their partisan agenda” of attacking Trump and focus on real issues.
Cheney plays a key role in Republican messaging as conference chair for the Republican minority in the U.S. House.
