( - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a dear colleague letter to members of the House Democratic Caucus today stating that the caucus will hold a conference call on Monday to discuss the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which was released yesterday.’

“As we continue to review this document, we will have more to report and will update you on the next steps that must be taken,” Pelosi said in her letter. “The Caucus is scheduling a conference call for Monday to discuss this grave matter, which is as soon as our analysis and this Holy Season’s religious traditions allow.”

“This report includes several alarming findings, including that ‘the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion,’” Pelosi said in her letter. “It also explicitly states that the President’s campaign took actions with an expectation that ‘it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts.’

“In his summary letter and press conference, Attorney General Barr presented a conclusion that the President did not obstruct justice,” said Pelosi. “The Mueller report appears to directly undercut that claim.”
