Senator Ted Cruz (R) has responded to the controversy surrounding the Mueller report after several members of the Democratic party called the current state of the U.S. a “constitutional crisis.”
While some Democrats like 2020 Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren have called on the House to begin the impeachment process, other Democrats like Nancy Pelosi have assured that impeachment is not likely moving forward.
Other Democrats like 2020 Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard have called for Democrats to reroute in light of the Mueller report’s findings that there would be no further indictments and that there was no Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential election. Gabbard instead argues that Democrats and lawmakers in general should accept the findings and should focus on responding to other more important concerns.
Senator Cruz, commenting on the ordeal, stated that “the Russia investigation is over. After 2 years of Dem & Media hysteria, after millions of dollars, after 2800 subpoenas, the Mueller report found no collusion.”
Echoing Gabbard, Cruz argued that “it’s time to move on & focus on issues that Americans care about.”
One investigation that will be conducted in response to the Mueller report has already been set in motion.
Attorney General William Barr assigned John Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, to investigate the origins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe into the Trump campaign.
Durham has a long history of investigating probably wrongdoings from national security officials, and he has conducted investigations for both Republicans and Democrats.
AG Barr, during his hearing, asserted that he wanted a review of whether the FBI had appropriate predicate to spy on the Trump campaign, citing that the FBI requested a surveillance warrant against former campaign advisor Cater Page.
