With the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) looking to take down U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., next year, the GOP is looking to make the Mueller report an issue in her South Florida district. 

On Monday, the NRCC pointed to a tweet Mucarsel-Powell posted in 2017 in which she insists there was collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump and called for his impeachment. 

“It’s time for Debbie Mucarsel-Powell to take off her tin foil hat. Less than two years ago, Mucarsel-Powell accused the president of the United States of conspiring with a foreign adversary with zero evidence,” the NRCC noted. “But Robert Mueller has concluded his special investigation and the president has been exonerated from colluding with the Russians. Debbie’s emotional reaction was irresponsible and dangerous. Now she must apologize to Floridians for peddling outrageous conspiracy theories that divided the country.”

For her part, Mucarsel-Powell weighed in on the Mueller report on Monday. 

“We must have transparency and see the whole Mueller Report. I continue to be concerned about the allegations of obstruction of justice,” she posted on Twitter. 

She also retweeted a message from U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, on Monday. 

“House Dems picked up 40 seats last November,” Jeffries posted. “Our candidates didn’t run on collusion or impeachment. We promised to lower healthcare costs....and that’s exactly what we are doing.”

Mucarsel-Powell defeated U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla, in November in one of the most closely watched congressional races in the Sunshine State. So far, she does not have any opponents for 2020. Still, the NRCC has listed her as a top target next year while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has included her in its “Frontline” program to help vulnerable incumbents.
