House Democrats getting subpoenas ready to obtain special counsel Robert Mueller's unredacted report are "just having a sugar fit" because they cannot accept his finding there was no collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., said Tuesday.
"The problem is they have nothing to do except accept the findings of the report, wait for the report to come out like the rest of America is, but they don't want to do that," Rep. Collins told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
Collins called it "sad" that House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., is calling a hearing Wednesday to subpoena the report.
"They are having a base problem because they can't let their base realize that they don't have anything to tear down this president with," Collins said.
Show host Bill Hemmer pointed out 21 years ago, Nadler said he opposed releasing special prosecutor Ken Starr's full report on then-President Bill Clinton. Collins said in response he would put Nadler's demands in the "dictionary under hypocrisy."
He added he does think everything should be released, barring legal issues, and he believes Attorney General William Barr will do that.
"It should not have classified information, it should not have grand jury information, and it should not have the ongoing investigations," Collins said.
Democrats are also claiming there is a cover-up underway, even though they have not seen what might be redacted, Collins said, and he finds it "abhorrent" that "they've already questioned the very intention and basically the ethics of the sitting attorney general."
