During Wednesday’s hearing, Democrat Congressman Greg Stanton made an attempt to shine a light on the integrity surrounding Robert Mueller to justify why he was the right choice for Special Counsel.

Stanton made remarks in regards to those who have questioned the motives of Mueller throughout the course of his Russia probe.

Stanton said, “I want to take a moment to remind the American people of who you are and your exemplary service to our country.”

“You are a marine. You served in Vietnam and are a bronze star and a purple heart,” he continued.
