Rep. Swalwell: VP Pence’s Call to End the Russia Investigation Is ‘Extremely Irresponsible’

‘Extremely irresponsible for somebody who should know better to try and influence special counsel’s campaign’

EXCERPPT:

MITCHELL: "Let’s talk about Robert Mueller. We never got an answer to the question of whether he think it’s a hoax. But he’s saying for first time that he should wrap it up, that it’s been a year. And I think that this is sort of the leading edge of what we’ll begin to hear."
SWALWELL: "Extremely irresponsible for somebody who should know better to try and influence special counsel’s campaign. They are still counting Russians. Under every rock you pick up, out of every tree you shake, a Russian falls out. So they are still counting Russians. There’s also just a failure to come clean. You’ve seen guilty pleas now from Mike Flynn, from George George Papadopoulos, from Rick Gates. So when you lie the investigation takes longer. And then the president is still screwing around with whether or not he'll sit down in the special counsel witness chair. He's been provided the questions. He could move this along a lot faster if he just sit down and cooperate."
