Waters: We Will Not Allow ‘Unconscionable’ Fox News, GOP and Trump to Undermine Mueller

Thursday at the so-called #ProtectMueller press conference, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), said Fox News, President Donald Trump and right-wing Republicans were attempting to smear FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Waters said, “There are growing attempts by right-wing media, some Republican members of Congress and President Donald Trump himself to discredit and undermine the work of special counsel Robert Mueller.”

She continued, “We have decided we will not stand by and allow Fox News and right-wing Republicans to defy the rule of law and create their own rules to interfere with a legitimate investigation under the Constitution of the United States. We will be vigorously working to deny the brazen attempts to destroy special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation.”

She added, “The unusual efforts that are being put forth by Trump, Republican members of Congress and Fox News are more than outrageous, they are unconscionable, destructive, and Constitutionally unsound.”
