Top House Oversight Dem says he will do 'anything and everything' to make Mueller's findings public

Source: The Hill


BY MICHAEL BURKE - 11/18/18 11:58 AM EST

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said Sunday that he will do "anything and everything" to make the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation available to the public.

"I would do anything and everything in my power to have the findings presented to not only to the Congress but to the people of the United States. I think its very important," Cummings said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

Cummings, who will likely be the next chairman of the panel, also pointed to the results of this month's midterms in which the Democrats regained the majority in the House as evidence that the public wants "accountability."

In this last election, what the public has said is they want accountability and they want transparency. And they have paid for an investigation by one of our greatest public servants, Mr. Mueller," he said.

1. What might be one thing to do is for Chairman Elect Adam Schiff to subpoena President Obama and ...

... in an open hearing have him testify to what he knew and now knows about Trump and
Russia. President Obama could also testify about what and when McConnell was told about
Russia and the 2016 elections.

4. I like that idea

Obama had meetings with Sally Yates, Clapper, Brennan and a few other senior security people to discuss the Russian meddling. Maybe they could all be subpoenaed, and it would perhaps take some of the pressure off Obama. We don't want to put him in a bad light now, because it was right at the end of his Presidency. Cheeto would certainly jump all over that, if he could.

3. --- shows what you know. It was changed to,

Of Goldman Sachs, for Citibank and by the Koch Brothers.

That happened when Gingrich became Speaker of the House.

5. I would say that the findings need to be

brought to light even if it's against some rules, or even a breach of the law.
If the public gets the information, that's all that matters. Even if this thing goes nowhere in Congress or the courts, the people will know what kind of scum we're dealing with. This info could destroy anyone, and anything, connected to Trump. The Trump Party (GOP) would then be dead on arrival. Trump is only temporary, by any measure, but the fright to crush the GOP will go on until it is finally crushed.

9. I really don't get why they wouldn't be

I understand there are probably sources that need to be protected so there will be redactions but how exactly could congress be prevented from releasing whatever he reports? Even if the president were to classify it there has to be reasoning behind that and if there isn't congress I assume can override the classificaiton using the FOIA couldn't they?

This is wha worries me about congress no matter which party is in charged, they just keep falling in love with keeping things secret that shouldn't be. I'm not asking for the names of spies or even if they exist and how they got the data but shouldn't it be possible to write a report that doesn't give any of that away?
