Republicans for the Rule of Law (RRL), a conservative group whose stated purpose is “defending the institutions of our republic,” will advertise on Fox & Friends next week to urge members of Congress to hold President Donald Trump accountable for the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Mueller, speaking publicly for the first time since beginning the Russian probe in 2017, reiterated on Wednesday during a press conference that he would have stated if the evidence collected during his 22-month-long investigation cleared Trump of any criminal wrongdoing, but he didn’t.
Chris Truax, a spokesperson and legal adviser for RRL, told Newsweek that Congress must properly investigate Mueller’s findings in order to address the “corruption of our Constitution from within.”
“Everybody — Republicans and Democrats but especially Republicans — need to step up and say, ‘Look, this is bigger than the politics of the day, this is about our democratic institutions.’ If we don’t defend them, that will have an impact on our country for decades to come,” he said. “President Trump still does not want to admit that this happened and that’s wrong, absurd and dangerous. Republicans need to stop enabling this behavior.”
GOP members should be “appalled at their casual disregard for the law, the Constitution and everything that makes America great,” Truax added. “Americans of all political affiliations should recoil at the plain fact that senior members of the administration put their own interests above the national security of the United States.”
I love that this is going to be shown during Fox and Friends which, besides Hannity, may be the most sycophantic show on television when it comes to Donald Trump.
That is just the demographic that desperately needs to see this.
“Robert Mueller did his job, now it’s time for members of Congress to do theirs,” may be the simplest and most important message there is right now.
