Video: On MSNBC, Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02) Says, “If…we find that criminal activity has occurred…it’s our responsibility to refer that to the Department of Justice.”


Last night on MSNBC, Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02) had the following to say:

“I would say that I don’t agree with what some of my colleagues have said about this. I think it’s a lot more important to do what’s right than it is to worry about the political ramifications. Our purpose is legislative and oversight, but if in the course of our investigation we find that criminal activity has occurred, I think it’s our responsibility to refer that to the Department of Justice. Even if they already know. Even if ten other judges or sets of circumstances have made that determination,   I think it’s within the responsibility of our committee if we should find that evidence that we do refer it...I think the purpose of this committee is to lay out the facts. And if in those facts, we find evidence that criminal acts, that crimes occurred, I think we have to include that in our report, and I think that we have to forward that to the Department of Justice, because they’re the ones that have to deal with crime.”


If people can watch that and would then choose to vote for [Donald Trump] or shared his values in the future, I think that’s very concerning as well…Certainly, there are those in the Republican Party who have embraced this. And they continue to double down, they’re very clear. Others have had a lot of courage, like Liz Cheney, and Adam Kinzinger, who serve with us on the committee, those who did vote I the second impeachment. I think as an American, I would hope there were more people in the Republican Party serving in office today who could look at the facts of what happened and uphold their constitutional duty to uphold our laws, not to undermine them.”
