Trump's reelection campaign team celebrated the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page redacted document on Thursday, claiming that the report "completely exonerated" President Trump, according to The Hill. But they went one step further than celebrating the lack of criminal charges against the president—they called for the investigation’s leaders and initiators to be investigated themselves.
In a statement, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said, “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.
“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era DOJ and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people,” he continued. “Justice will be served.”
Quoting Barr's comments to Congress last week regarding alleged "spying" during the investigation, he said, “There is simply no denying that ‘spying did occur’ on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, as Attorney General Barr himself noted in testimony before Congress. Barr went on to testify that there was a 'failure among a group of leaders there at the upper echelon [of the FBI] … [and] I feel I have an obligation to make sure that government power is not abused.”
