Republicans are fighting back against a series of attacks about the conduct of President Donald Trump detailed in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller, The Hill is reporting.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas said the efforts by congressional Democrats are all about the 2020 campaign.

“If this were legitimate oversight, that would be one thing, but I think this is more like harassment and it’s all politics,” Cornyn said

“Obviously Democrats were very disappointed in the Mueller report and they’re not willing to accept the conclusions and move on.”

And Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa said House subpoenas and demands for senior administration staffers to testify are unnecessary since “the president already gave a million pages to oversight.” His comments referred to the president’s order to the Justice Department and the director of national intelligence to declassify Russia-related documents, according to The Hill.

And he noted: “Any conversation that a president has with anybody is between him and his colleagues.” 

Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., slammed Democrats saying they are out for “political revenge.”

“This is political revenge,” he told Fox News. “The House is on a witch hunt…”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had challenged GOP lawmakers to take action as a result of Mueller’s report.

“What are my Republican friends going to do with it?” he asked on the Senate floor.
