During an interview on CNN’s ‘Right Now with Brianna Keilar,’ Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) shared his perspective on Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s appearance before Congress and discussed House Democrats’ efforts to hold President Donald J. Trump accountable to the American people.
“I thought Mueller’s testimony was effective … He reenergized all the investigative committees that are looking at what Trump did during the campaign, and frankly what he did since he came into the White House,” said Congressman Sarbanes. “And we’ll continue to shake those trees. I think our committees are doing a very good job.”
Congressman Sarbanes continued: “The impeachment issue is tricky because the problem is you have a corrupt jury on the Senate side. Mitch McConnell and the Republicans over there are not gonna convict this President. They’ve made that very clear. So, as a prosecutor, do you wanna take your case to a corrupt jury, to a kangaroo court? I would prefer, as I’m looking at it now, I would prefer to put, 70, 100 million Americans in the jury box next November 3rd, and have them deliver a verdict on this President.”
Congressman Sarbanes concluded: “And our job in the meantime, through our investigative committees – like the one that’s headed up by Jerry Nadler, Judiciary, but also Elijah Cummings on Oversight – our job is to get as much evidence as we can in front of the American public, so they’re equipped to make that judgment.”
