closeVideo Rendell suggests Democrats should focus on the legislation after the dismissal of Müller-report

Democrats must now your focus will shift away from Russia, and the 2016 presidential elections and spend more time doing “the business of the people,” if you want to have a chance to defeat the trump card in the year 2020, the former DNC Chairman Ed Rendell says.

The comments of the ex-Governor of Pennsylvania, on “America’s Newsroom” Monday to fight his party on how to proceed following the publication of a summary of the findings of Robert Mueller’s investigation, the state attorney General, Bill Barr says was not able to prove that Trump or his campaign in cooperation with Russia in order to influence the outcome of the 2016 race.

“We have to do this, the business of the people,” Rendell said. “And this is the legislation in the area of infrastructure, immigration, fixing the Affordable Care Act, things like that. This will be the key to whether we will be successful in the year 2020.”

Rendell added that it is important to note that the summary published by Barr, “did relieve [Trump] on all the evidence on a collision, but it is expressly said… it didn’t relieve him of obstruction of justice.

“This must be looked at by people who look at the report and decide what to do,” he added, further suggesting that “I would, if I were to say a Republican President is Trump out of the forest.

“This was only said one of many, many different places, to investigate, President Trump,” Rendell.

But for the democratic party, “we should continue to do that investigation, if appropriate, but we should be done our attention now to the legislation, on getting some things,” Rendell believes.


“The Democrats should not have made the statements, that sufficient evidence of collusion,” he said. “It was not – it was on the edges at best.

“Now we should put it behind us and focus on the investigation of other things to the investigation. But the most important is to adopt our laws,” he continued. “We must bill pass out of the Democratic house infrastructure, in order to make the people back to work, something about the absolutely pathetic state of our infrastructure. Immigration to solve, we should use the immigration issue to try.”
