Chris Coons: GOP Memo ‘Doesn’t Provide the Vindication President Trump Is Claiming’

‘I am encouraged, Joe, that there are a few Republicans like Trey Gowdy saying on the Sunday shows and in public that this doesn’t have anything to do with trying to undermine or derail Robert Mueller’s investigation’

EXCERPT:

COONS: "And I’ll tell you, I have the same reaction to the memo by Devin Nunes that you do. I’ve got the memo right here. And frankly, if folks haven’t read it, they should. Because it doesn’t provide the vindication President Trump is claiming. It makes it clear, in fact, that the investigation was well underway before the Steele dossier was ever brought forward. And it points to Papadopoulos, another Trump campaign aide who has now pled guilty and is cooperating, as the source of the initial intelligence that began the investigation into the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. I am encouraged, Joe, that there are a few Republicans like Trey Gowdy saying on the Sunday shows and in public that this doesn’t have anything to do with trying to undermine or derail Robert Mueller’s investigation."
