Harris Won’t Accept the Findings of the Mueller Report

"I don’t have yet enough information to actually assess what is – whether what Barr did is appropriate or not..."

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) refused to accept the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia during an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday.

Attorney General William Barr sent a summary of Mueller’s final report to congressional leaders on Sunday which found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Harris what she thought about Barr’s memo regarding Mueller’s final report.

“I don’t have yet enough information to actually assess what is – whether what Barr did is appropriate or not, I can only assume though that it only took him two days to write a four-page summary of an investigation that was conducted over the course of two years and seemingly around the clock,” Harris said. “So, it calls into question the integrity of the document that he submitted, that four-page document, and the integrity of it in terms of whether or not it was comprehensive enough to give the American public a sense of what the investigation actually discovered, uncovered and involved.”

“For that reason, I strongly believe that in the interest of transparency and in the interest of the American public’s interest in knowing and right to know, that there should be full transparency, that the Mueller report should be made public, [and] that the underlying evidence should be available to Congress,” Harris added.

Harris went on to say that she believes very strongly that Barr should be required to testify under oath before Congress.

“In this case, we are presented with some of the most troubling issues and concerns in terms of the various branches of government, and Congress should be allowed to do its job, which is oversight in particular as it relates to these issues. And that requires transparency, which we’ve not yet received obviously,” Harris said.
