FLASHBACK: Swalwell: I'll "Fight Like Hell" To See Mueller Report


Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said he would "fight like hell" to see the Mueller report in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon in 2019. On Wednesday, at the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, Swalwell said the former president using the phrase "fight like hell" helped incite the Capitol Riot in January.

"I'll fight like hell to make sure we see this report," Swalwell said on CNN. "Whether it's organizing again, whether it's using my lungs, whether it's outmaneuvering with our minds. The American people are going to see this report."

"He repeated this messaging even after he saw the violence it was inciting and when they were primed and angry and ready to fight, he escalated and channeled their rage with a call to arms," Swalwell said Wednesday. "Show up on January 6th at the exact time the votes of the American people were being counted and certified and the march to the Capitol and fight like hell."
