"Nobody is demonizing him (President Donald Trump). I read a report (the Mueller report) and gave my assessment and that's the job of a representative. The person who demonizes people everyday is Donald Trump. (applause) He goes on Twitter and calls people names and says the most egregious things about people. And somehow if anyone challenges any policy position he has or says there is something in the Mueller report that we should look at, that's somehow attacking him or demonizing him and that's totally ridiculous, of course. And everyone recognizes that. I don't think anyone thinks that that is a reasonable position."
"I think it's really important that we do our job as a Congress - that we not allow misconduct to go undeterred."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) SOUNDBITE (English) Anna Timmer, Attended town hall:
"Why did you talk nothing about the FISA abuses? If you care about the Constitution so much, why didn't you say anything about the yearlong violation of the fourth amendment rights of Trump and his entire transition team?"
"One of the types of abuse I care about, besides the FISA abuse, which is also important - if there is FISA abuse, we should know about it. But other types of abuse include things like obstructing justice, preventing the rule of law from taking place, so you have to counter all of that kind of abuse. It's not just one type of abuse in government. I think the executive branch is too powerful. It does abuse power under Democrats and under Republicans and we need to reign it in."
"You wouldn't believe how many phone conversations I had or conversations (inaudible) colleagues: 'Justin...' by the way, a lot of them think I'm right about the Mueller report and they just won't say it. They're a lot of the Republicans. And what they'll say to me is: 'Justin, you know, going out publicly with that, you know the Democrats will never support you, you know that they are hypocrites on this stuff.' And I say, you know, some of them are, some of them aren't, but it doesn't matter to me. Because you have to look at what you're doing first. You have to care about what you're doing. And if you have a society where all we care about is that the other side is bad and therefore, we don't have to do the right thing, that society will break down and you will have no liberty." (applause)
