‘The Matter Is Entirely Over’: Pence Tells Dems Americans Want to ‘Move On’ from Mueller’s Probe

Vice President Mike Pence clocked congressional Democrats’ call for the president’s impeachment as he’s telling them to move on and start “making a difference” for the American people.

Following special counsel Robert Mueller’s public press conference on Wednesday — as he addressed his Russia report and laid out his resignation — Democrats’ desire to see President Donald Trump booted from office only increased.

In case you missed it:

Pence told Fox Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria” in an interview aired Friday that he was “pleased” to see the special counsel deliver a “case closed.”

“The Special Counsel sent his report. And he concluded that there was no collusion. And after a review of the facts, the Department of Justice confirmed there was no collusion, no obstruction.”

“The American people want to see this Congress move on,” Pence added. “Move on to the things that are making a difference in their lives.”

As for the part of Mueller’s statement when he said, “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” it has only driven more impeachment talks.

Pence responded to the impeachment calls:

“I wouldn’t know why there would be.

[…] And we know that that the Russia interfered in the 2016 elections. We don’t believe it affected the outcome in anyway, but we’ve held them accountable for that. We’ve taken steps to insure that that doesn’t happen again. […] Now even the Special Counsel confirmed that there was no collusion between our campaign and and the Russians. And the Department of Justice has confirmed that there was no collusion, no obstruction.”

Watch the full interview below:

“The matter is entirely over, it’s entirely closed. The American people got the answers,” the vice president declared, suggesting Congress start placing focus on jobs and security for the American people.

Pence and Trump want to move on and expect Congress and the American people to accept their version of what Mueller’s report said. Donny may be so stupid that he really believes that he was exonerated by the report. He doesn’t read things, so he has no actual idea what the report says. Pence, on the other hand, is an intelligent guy, a closeted gay man IMO, but intelligent. He has probably read the report, and he knows damned well that it doesn’t exonerate Trump. He just has to tow the party line, or he will not be on the… Read more »

Mueller is a Slimebag Traitor and Nothing of his findings should of been turned lose once Trump read it and found that he had decided nothing for the good of the American Public having to deal with the Nasty Democrats and all their Criminal activities and lying for the past years since Trump has been Our President and especially the crimes they are getting bu with before Trump during the Obama Regime! Obama is in another Country running his mouth over our Guns and he just needs to be told to stay there and never allow him back into America!… Read more »

Trying to cover up Trump’s crime. Read Mueller’s report before you open your mouth to defend a traitor.

Mueller’s report says that Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses. Republicans want to ignore it. Republicans consider the POTUS above all law?

Congress is broken as long as Mitchy is the leader in the Senate. Not even bringing items to the floor for a vote. He has too much power for one man. I truly believe that he knows that many of the bills would pass with Republican support.. He still has the president in his pocket for the veto. Congress should be representing the people not using their position to fill their own pockets. This goes for both sides of the isle.

You are so wrong. We, Americans, want justice and those who violated the laws and our Constitution have to be proceessed according to the law. No one is above the law. Not you, not the Liar in Chief, not Barr who should resign.
