Jackie Speier: The Attorney General of the United States of America Has Been Corrupted

‘Russia succeeded’


SPEIER: “I would also say that what we have here now is a situation where the Attorney General of the United States of America has been corrupted. For him to say this morning, and I agree with Chris Matthews, that somehow there was an attempt to intervene in the election — there was no attempt. They succeeded. Russia succeeded in intervening in our election. The real test right now is whether or not Congress as an institution will lay aside political interests and do what I think Special Counsel Mueller is jumping up and down and telling us to do, is do what he could not do because the Office of Legal Counsel has a guideline that you cannot indict a sitting president."
