Eric Swalwell Threatens to Hold Hostage Gov’t Funding to Force Passage of Bill to Protect Mueller

‘We are going to insist we protect the Mueller probe’


SWALWELL: “Well, Whitaker was hired to be a hitman, to take out the Mueller probe. It's clear he fired the guy that recused himself from the probe to put in someone who has already prejudged the investigation. Now if this had happened on Monday, we would be helpless as Democrats. We're not helpless anymore. The American people spoke on Tuesday, they want a check on abuses of power. That’s I think one of the issues that was on the ballot. And so we have a number of options. On, we are going to have funding the government vote coming up here in a couple of weeks, and we are going to insist that we protect the Mueller probe.”
