Rep. Dan Crenshaw on Saturday called out the Democrats for what he called their spread of misinformation about the Mueller report.
The freshman Republican from Texas tweeted out a list of the ways that he said the rival party got the facts wrong about the special counsel’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any connection – or lack thereof – to Donald Trump and his presidential campaign.

In the tweet, Crenshaw directly accused Rep. Adam Schiff of California of lying, referring to his claim earlier this month to have “direct evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.” Crenshaw also said the Democrats were wrong to say that Trump would interfere with the report or that Republicans would try to suppress it.
We don’t yet know what’s in the report.
We do know that transparency is necessary. It’s the only way to put the false narratives to rest.
I encourage DOJ to share with Congress, so we can hear for ourselves, and not via other members with a poltical agenda.

As Crenshaw noted in a follow-up tweet, nobody in Congress yet knows what is in Mueller’s report to Attorney General William Barr, which was submitted Friday. But the former Navy SEAL turned congressman’s conclusions were supported by the known facts.
The Justice Department has said that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has not recommended any further indictments and that none of the the special counsel’s decisions were vetoed by his superiors. Twenty-five Russians were indicted during the probe on charges related to election interference, along with six Trump associates on unrelated charges.
With Barr expected to summarize the findings for lawmakers as early as Sunday, members of both parties have called for the full report to be made public, echoing a recent non-binding bipartisan in the House. The White House had been quiet over the weekend, but had previously disparaged the Muller investigation as a politically motivated “witch hunt.”
However, the two parties’ respective moods have been very different. Many Republicans have acted as though Trump is already vindicated, whereas Democrats have sought to tamp down public expectations, and promised to continue their various congressional investigations of the president.
In a media tour Sunday, Schiff – who is leading one of the probes as the head of the House Intelligence Committee – stood by his past claims, saying that “there is still significant evidence of collusion.”
