Trump says report ‘a clean bill of health’ as Dems seek more

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says the summary of the special counsel’s report “could not have been better,” but congressional Democrats are insisting that more information needs to be released from the two-year investigation into Russia’s election interference.

Trump took a victory lap of sorts Tuesday when he visited Capitol Hill for a gathering of Senate Republicans. Those attending a luncheon say the president was in a lively mood over the report’s favorable findings yet also wanted to move on to other issues.

House Democrats had their own get-together, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging calm and a renewed focus on policy matters such as health care, jobs and oversight of the Trump administration.

Meanwhile, Justice Department officials say more from the special counsel’s report could be released in a few weeks.
