While media commentators across the political spectrum have tended to agree that this week’s congressional hearings with former special counselor Robert Mueller were a disaster for the Russian-interference-in-the-2016-election narrative, two top Vermont politicians are doubling down in support of Mueller’s testimony.

Welch called the Green New Deal “a broad outline of ambitious goals” and said Congress over the next two years would be drafting legislation and conducting hearings to make progress toward those goals.
