On the same day as Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed over his report to Attorney General William Barr, HBO’s Bill Maher asked out loud if Democrats put too much trust in the Mueller report.
“We don’t know much,” he said of the report. “I’m just going to go by what we do know, and I must say, I don’t think it looks good. No further indictments, which means, not Don, Jr., even after ‘I love it’ memo. Really?”
He then added Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone will also not be indicted for working with the Russians.
“Did the Democrats put too much trust in the Mueller report?” he then asked. “I don’t need the Mueller report to know he’s a traitor. I have a TV.”
Rep. Eric Swalwell then replied by noting that people have gone to jail and there is probably a “farming out” of other investigations.
“Yes, if you have a TV or a Twitter account and you’ve already seen obstruction of justice. I think the team has seen that,” he said before noting what is important is that President Donald Trump should not be allowed to “restrict or sanitize” the report.
He added that it was important for Mueller to come before Congress and if needed “we will subpoena him.”
