1. SOUNDBITE (English) Kevin McCarthy, Republican Minority Leader:
"Good evening. Today was a historical day, I listened to the Speaker. It was a historical day because today is the day that we close the book on this investigation. It is time that America turns the page. It is time for America to move forward. The Democrats have to stop wasting time in trying to have a do-over of the 2016 Presidential election. For more than two years Democrats have obsessed about the Mueller investigation. Going as far as falsely accusing that they had evidence of collusion, which we found not to be true today."
"I challenge the Democratic colleagues, get over the election of 2016. Run in 2020 if you want. This President has put forward a great economy. This President has put forward great ideas. Run on this, quit trying to dredge up a picture that today got painted, that said your investigation is over. Mr Mueller has done his job. He presented a report. Someone asked did you find out anything new? The answer is no. We've had the report for three months. And Mr Mueller simply said what was in the report."
"I think what you see today is collusion between the Republican Party and the Trump campaign is over. There was no evidence. There was a dossier that was built and paid for by the Clinton campaign. That was the real collusion. You've had collusion through a British former MI6 agent who was working supposedly with Russian sources. We didn't get any new information on that today. But the Democrats have refused to accept reality, they live in an alternative universe."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Jim Jordan, Republican Oversight and Government Reform:
"The investigation that matters, and I said this in today's hearing, actually the two investigations that matter most now, the one that Mr Horowitz is going to have completed here in a couple of months, and of course the one that the Attorney General has tasked John Durham the US Attorney to do, which is to look into how this whole three year saga began, that our country has now lived through for these three years. So those are the things that matter, and I look forward to hearing from that. But let's stop the continuous investigation into something that we've already spent three years on."
