President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he had told the House of Representatives not to vote for to have a mandatory resolution demanding the release of a report by Robert Muller's special lawyer. Wait what? Is not this the same person who only one day earlier said that Muller "should never have been appointed " and that "there should not be a Müller report"? Why, yes, but what was yesterday . Now Trump said that all this does not matter, so why not?
The president responded to a vote on Thursday, in which MPs voted 420-0 in favor of the event, which urged Prosecutor General William Barr to issue a full report. To somebody did not think that the vote meant that the Republicans were standing apart from Trump, he said on Saturday that they were actually bidding for him. "I told the leadership that all Republicans voted for transparency. It makes us look good and does not matter, "Trump wrote. "Play along with the game!"
It seems that Trump neglected to send this message to one of his closest allies in the Senate, since Saint. Lindsay Graham blocked the vote in this House. Graham refused to allow the resolution to vote in the Senate after the Democrats rejected his demand to add measures that would call the Ministry of Justice to appoint a special lawyer to investigate how he conducted an investigation into the use of Hillary Clinton's email.
