Hawaii Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono: White House A ‘Moral Dead Zone’ | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC

But when we read the report, we knew Robert Mueller’s concerns were valid and that your version of events was false. You used every advantage of your office to create the impression that the president was cleared of misconduct. You selectively quoted fragments from the special counsel report, taking some of the most important statements out of context and ignoring the rest. You put the power and authority of the office of the attorney general and the Department of Justice behind a public relations effort to help Donald Trump protect himself – Senator Hirono Continue reading Hawaii Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono: White House A ‘Moral Dead Zone’ | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC
