Video+Statement: Cornyn – As Much of Mueller Report Should be Public as Possible

WASHINGTON – On Monday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and urged Attorney General William Barr to release as much of the findings to the public as possible under the law.

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s floor remarks are below, and video can be found above.

“Any attempts by a foreign government to interfere with our democratic processes, successful or unsuccessful, must not be taken lightly. Though the Special Counsel’s investigation was very targeted and specific, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on which I serve continue our work to more closely examine the matter”

“After reviewing the Special Counsel’s findings, the attorney general concluded that the Trump campaign did not coordinate with the Russian government in their efforts to influence the election. Based on the reaction since General Barr’s release of his letter, it’s clear that the partisans who will never be satisfied with any results of an investigation will not be appeased by this report from the Special Counsel.”

“I agree with those on both sides of the aisle as well as the president who want the Mueller report to be released publicly. As much of the report as can be released consistent with existing law should be made public so that the American people can read it for themselves.”

***

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.

  1. Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

    William Barr mush release all of the full report of the Mueller report! EVERYTHING!!! and he can’t release the Barr report only. Meaning that he went through the whole report and will more than likely only cherry pick what he wants to release. Hiding the truth from what the report really says about the Trump/Russia collusion. Donald Trump did collude with Russia that makes him a crooked criminal. As usual republicans think that they are all above the law and Donald Trump and William Barr are disgusting crooks.
    TRUMP FOR PRISON IN 2021!
    We want the Mueller report! not the Barr report!

    • The original MAGA

      There is no collusion by Trump nor his team. It’s over. Get over it dude. Trump isn’t as stupid as you think he is. He would not have asked for full release of Muellers report if there was any thing in there . On the other hand, Obama’s DOJ and FBI leadership as well as Obama himself better hope the Mueller report isn’t released as the REAL collusion with Russian by the Democrats will be exposed. The silent coup of a duly elected President has become clear and America and our President deserve justice.

      • Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

        The original MAGGOT! the Mueller report was not complete! GET IT? Why do you think that stupid Trump selected William Barr as his attorney general? Sure he asked for the release of the full Mueller report! SO WHERE IS IT?
        I mean the Mueller report not the Barr report, ALL OF IT! in it’s full entire report like Robert Mueller made it. And without no edit,missing pages,extractions got lost during transit,no excuses etc.
        Don’t give me this garbage BS about president Obama’s DOJ and FBI leadership! stop trying to cover the sunlight with one finger in defense of Donald Trump?
        Everything was just fine before Donald Trump colluded with the Russians.
        37 indictments were issued against Trump and his cronies, No one in the Obama administration was ever indicted or ever went to prison! FACT CHECK THAT you A.HOLE!
        Thank God! that we finally have oversight on half of the federal government, last year we didn’t have that! All three branches of the federal government were protecting Donald Trump, and shielding him from his corruption and many crimes including the Russian collusion. Add groping to that too……
        The Obama administration issued sanctions on Russia and Putin’s oligarchs for invading Crimea and Eastern Ukraine including the Meninsky Act. John Cornyn just voted to lift sanctions on a Russian Oligarch! You talking about silent coup?
        The problem with idiots like you and all those at the KVIA forum is that you all think that your shit don’t stink! IT DOES BOY! worst than an El Paso sewage treatment plant over flooding. You can fact check that too.
        Donald Trump is not a legitimate elected whatever, I side with congressman John Lewis, I also refuse to call Donald Trump the real P word, he’s nothing but a racist SOB CON ARTIST!
        When all is said and done, and a new elected congress takes over both houses of congress and the executive branch is replaced by a democrat president in 2021!. May Donald Trump receive a harsh punishment for what he has manage to avoid and get away from after all these years.
        Those bones spurs of his will leave tracks on the dirt if he has any, the country that he want’s us to become. Would judge him fairly and give him the Benito Mussolini treatment he most deserves.He’s lucky that he lives in the United States of America.And if you know anything about World History, do some research, maggot?
        Besides, I always believe in that old theory that no one ever leaves this world without paying their dues!
        P.S. tell mikey mad mike that they are hiring over at secret service,apply within.
        janitorial minimum wage, it’s an upgrade to what he is doing now. Sitting on his fat butt blast ass that overlaps the toilet seat inside his trailer.
        Knock Knock!!! secret service, open up…..

            I might had misspelled his name,Russian names are not on my vocabulary radar.

  3. Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

    It’s time to remove and vote the Orrin Hatch of Texas out of United States Senate, come November 2020! the senile demented John Cornyn has got to go to the old age nursing home or even a halfway house, for further observation.So he can’t harm anyone anymore. he’s a Trump blowhard jerk,just like Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott.

    • The original MAGA

      What about the senile demented Chuck Shumer? Or the senile Nancy Pelosi? That woman has clearly lost her mind. She’s a danger to herself and this country. If Cornyn should go then so should they.

      • Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

        There you go again,using my words to describe what a copy cat you are, original butter cup maggot.The only thing that I disagree with Nancy Pelosi is that she allows Donald Trump to kiss her on her facial cheeks.
        She better not come out and say that Donald Trump groped her, because if he does grope her.Then she is setting her self up for hush payments.
        So how’s the Genocide Tattoo business doing, there Jerry? aka Watch Dawg!
        Making millions of dollars,business is good putting your fake made up children through college. MUY BUENO PAYASO! SENILE! Y MENZO!

  4. MAGA and Mike,

    What the hell is wrong with that dude? WoWzers

    TxRngr

    • The Original MAGA

      You better watch it TXRngr this guy is a complete psycho. He will now attack you like a rapid dog.

      • MAGA,

        There are so many loons out there, its almost a damn shame. I have pity for them, maybe they can get some peace when their old ass dies from stroking out!!! I have been reading his trifling garbage for a while on here, its amusing to me that these cats get so worked up on these boards. I got bored at work, so I have decided to troll them. Just ignore them and talk with each other, pisses them off.

        I messaged the site moderator and they basically told me that if they have a IP verified email account they will let them say whatever with no control…so game on!!

        Have a good one!

        TxRngr

        • Yeah, I talked with the moderator too, got the same thing. On the bright side, the more his psychosis develops, sooner or later he will physically threaten an elected official, then he can be cuffed and stuffed.

        • The original MAGA

          It just amazes me how this guy assume he knows what he’s talking about. He keeps accusing me of posting on KVIA which I have never done. I didn’t even know KVIA had a comments section. Besides, I don’t like KVIA and don’t watch their news. And I guess he assumes I’m some sort of tattoo artist or something. He seems to think he knows who I am and he’s wrong every time. Every time I deny it drives him insane. You’re right though. Trolling this clown is great entertainment.

    • Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

      Yea TexassRnr! get your free tattoo @ Genocide Tattoo, but you have to get original maggot and mad mike to shave your dirty ass.

    • All DEMONCRAPS are racists!!!!

      TxRngr— I like to troll these fucking racists morons. We need to team up and troll the fuck outta these DemonCraps!!!

      My Leftist friends constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

      Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. We tried statesmanship. We tried propriety. And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob. I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

      I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

      I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.

      Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

      The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

      The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

      With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

      During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

      Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.

      Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

      General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

      Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

      That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

      It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

      Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

      Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”… Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond.

      This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

      Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

      Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

      So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do.

      These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
      So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!” ~ Evan Sayet, the author of “The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks.”

      • Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

        Wow! spoken like the rest of the deplorable inbreeding white nationalist supremacist and some vendidos too! And proven that all republicanTURDS share the same corn husk as toilet paper wedged up deep their anal cavities.
        The story above was written from a delusional crack head high on XANAX while overdosed on opioids and bug spray.
        So much history about his own dying breed of cultist turds, as the inbreeding factory is running out of mutants, they turn to chickens and goats. To try to repopulate their shrinking cult republican culture to no avail.
        So this creep is telling us that from a log cabin republican to a staunch republican NAMBLA member for life, or just another Cesar Sayoc wannabe….NUT JOB!!!
        QUE “LASTIMA”! para el pobre HUEY!
        that’s what happens when people don’t practice safe sex, this is one of the results above from inbreeding. The crazies are going extinct.So they are coming from the KVIA forum and taking over the El Paso Herald Post commenting.
        The post should do the same as KTSM! and shut this commenting forum down!
        Nah leave it open, I like hearing their gibberish wild tale rant’s.

      • The original MAGA

        Well said. My mom and I often talk about why they hate Trump so much. We know why but haven’t really been able to articulate that. You’re right. He brought a gun to a knife fight and they don’t like it. That sums it up pretty good.

        • Mueller's gone but the party is just starting!

          Do you and your mom also discuss why Trump hates president Obama and started the birther movement? Do you and your mom discuss why Trump calls less develop countries, shit hole countries? Do you and your mom also discuss why Donald Trump puts immigrant children inside cages,shuffles them around and they end up for adoption.Do you and your mom discuss why Donald Trump hates people of brown skin and discriminates against Muslims? Do you and your mom discuss why Donald is RACIST like yourselves?
          I bet NOT!
          Bigots like you are in total denial. Nobody asked you if you watch KVIA News? but you do post on the KVIA commenting forum just like mad mike, Fero and other pro TrumpTURD white nationalist crackers and vendidos too.
          Mueller did not exonerate Donald Trump,so Y’ALL victory laps was a total waste of moronic foolishness.
          Democrats have many surprises for Donald Trump and his family,so don’t be tardy for the party.
          It’s called Trump’s rude awakening to reality,COMING SOON TO THE WORLD STAGE OF TRUTH!
          stay tune, and turn off Fox News! they’ve brainwashed you enough!
          that you get wet dreams about Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro.
          Sean Hannity is still in the closet waiting to come out.
          Aren’t you glad that Bill O’Reilly is GONE? DONE GONE! he is.

          • You are so full of shit, you racists fat puss filled idiot—I almost pity you!!!!!!

            “Though it’s true that the specific allegation that Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. first reared its head during the 2008 presidential race, rumblings about Obama’s “otherness” had been percolating since long before that. In 2004, a political gadfly named Andy Martin issued a press release calling Barack Obama a “complete fraud” who had “misrepresented his heritage” in his memoir, Dreams From My Father, and “is a Muslim who has concealed his religion.” The theme was pushed further in December 2006 by conservative columnist Debbie Schlussel, who published an article entitled “Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, Always a Muslim,” which stated that “Obama has a ‘born-again’ affinity for the nation of his Muslim father, Kenya.” In March 2007, Clinton campaign strategist Mark Penn proposed attacking Obama on the basis of his “lack of American roots.” And, in December 2007, a Clinton volunteer county coordinator in Iowa was fired for forwarding an e-mail making the by-then familiar claim that Obama is a Muslim.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome
    Simply put, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a illness that hard left liberals, anti-trump conservatives, and progressives have. These are very hateful people who cannot have reasonable arguments or conversations about common sense issues. If you encounter someone with Trump Derangement Syndrome, we should go easy on them, they’ve been fed false propaganda and false fallacies. Counter them with “Fuck You”! These individuals suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome often say “orange man bad” Even after constant facts and logic, they will still say Trump sucks.
