Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said Sunday that he will do “anything and everything” to make the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller‘s Russia investigation available to the public.
“I would do anything and everything in my power to have the findings presented to not only to the Congress but to the people of the United States. I think it’s very important,” Cummings said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Cummings, who will likely be the next chairman of the panel, also pointed to the results of this month’s midterms — in which the Democrats regained the majority in the House — as evidence that the public wants “accountability.”
“In this last election, what the public has said is they want accountability and they want transparency. And they have paid for an investigation by one of our greatest public servants, Mr. Mueller,” he said.
