Eric Trump: Mueller’s Done a Tremendous Amount to Divide the Country

Robert Mueller created a stir in Washington today by releasing a statement, followed by a retirement announcement. The former special prosecutor, did however, speak vaguely enough for both Republicans and Democrats to claim victory.

The president’s son, Eric Trump, did just that during an appearance on Lou Dobbs’ Fox News tonight. Trump also managed to take a shot at Mueller, blaming him for the division within the country.

The businessmen told the host, “I think the guy’s done a tremendous amount to divide this country. It wouldn’t take anybody two and a half years to come up with the fact that there’s no collusion, that there’s no obstruction.”

Trump lamented the fact the Mueller did not stand by the White House’s line that the president had been exonerated. He continued, “He said today ‘I stand by everything in the report.’ Albeit he just didn’t come out and say, ‘Guys, after two and a half years, there was no collusion and there was no obstruction.’”

Democrats on the Hill drew a much different assessment than Trump. Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, tweeted, “Robert Mueller’s statement also makes clear that Congress has a right—we believe an obligation—to continue our constitutionally mandated oversight without interference or stonewalling and follow the facts wherever they may lead.”

2020 democratic hopeful, Cory Booker, felt that Mueller’s statement was a trigger to begin impeachment proceedings. The New Jersey senator wrote, “Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.”
