Mueller to make a public case for Trump impeachment with 'very substantial evidence' in congressional hearing, committee chairman says



Robert Mueller   will air "very substantial evidence" of wrongdoing by   Donald Trump   and make a public case for impeachment when he appears before congressional hearings this week, it has been claimed.

The lawyer’s investigation into   Russian   interference in the 2016 election shows the   US   president is guilty of "high crimes and misdemeanours", says   Jerrold Nadler , the House Judiciary Committee chairman.

"This is a president who has violated the law six ways from Sunday," the leading Democrat said. "We have to present, or let Mueller present, those facts to the American people...because the administration must be held accountable and no president can be above the law."

Mr Mueller will answer questions about his findings – which specifically looked at links between the Russian state and Mr Trump’s election campaign – during back-to-back hearings on Wednesday.

Analysts suggest his testimony could be pivotal in shifting public opinion on if the president should be held accountable for those apparent links.

The report itself – a redacted version of which was published in April – did not find sufficient evidence to establish charges of criminal conspiracy. But it did suggest Mr Trump may have tried to obstruct the investigation.

Now Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have said they plan to focus on a set of episodes laid out in the report to direct the attention of Americans to what they see as the most egregious examples of the president's conduct, which point to obstruction of justice.

Those examples include Mr Trump's directions to then-White House counsel Donald McGahn to have Mr Mueller removed and, later, orders from Mr Trump to Mr McGahn to deny that happened.

Democrats also will focus questioning on a series of meetings Mr Trump had with former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in which the president directed Mr Lewandowski to persuade then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit Mr Mueller's investigation.

But   Doug Collins , the top Republican on the committee, argued that "any thought of impeachment is waning" and that the American public has moved on.


He added that Republicans will be focused in their questioning on making clear that the Mueller report represents a "final episode" in the Russia probe, which he described as flawed.

This is a win win situation for people who want Trump brought to justice.  If it is nothing but an accurate recitation of the report it is not good for Trump. If they get him to go beyond the report that is not good for Trump either. 

Trumpsters assume they have overcome this problem, but the truth can never be ultimately overcome.

I think this may help launch the criminal prosecution of Mueller.  At minimum they should seek to expose his corruption and malfeasance in pursuit of Trump and related others.

He is not above reproach, no one is.  But with that said, there is no evidence whatsoever showing any kind of malfeasance on Mueller's part.  If anything, he has shown too much trepidation in pointing a finger at Trump and Trump's associates.

I especially did not like the part where here ID'd people in the Trump administration that had lied under oath, but he chose not to indictment because there were too many of them.

Where is this evidence coming from? Re-reading the report isn't going to do it. BTW a US Attorney investigation is about to take down critical parts of the Mueller Report. An attorney for Joseph Mifsud is being questioned about who Mifsud worked for.

The hearing has begun.

Are people watching this? It is a disaster for Mueller and the democrats. A few things are now obvious - the Mueller Report and the investigation itself was staff driven! It was those activists like Weissmann who ran the show and it was they who pushed back against the AG.

Mueller looks so feeble. I'm old but I hope I never get that old!

Are you really serious John????  Mueller is going to defend and "explain" his 478 page report to the idiots on the numerous Dem/Lib panels because they are too futched up with their hate and loathing at having lost the 2016 Presidential election "CONSTITUTIONALLY" - and they won't quit.

IF Mueller provides additional information not addressed in the report, he has just damned himself, his committee and the law.  This is not a time of "do-overs" - he crossed that line when he issued the OFFICIAL/FINAL report.

from the seed..."Analysts suggest his testimony could be pivotal in shifting public opinion on if the president should be held accountable for those apparent links."

Public opinion is pretty much set in stone at this juncture, regardless of new revelations. The Democrats will be coerced into holding impeachment hearings as the candidates, playing to those they need to assuage, will demand it. The GOP will continue to deny any need for accountability for anything oozing from the Resident, and will deftly suggest investigations into previous administrations are more pressing. And Mueller, a man mutually respected and above approach when this whole thing started, will become a pariah, while the media, pundits, and posters will be apoplectic in their self-righteous indignation.        Just another day in a long string of daze.

Same can be said of the Dems and their rampant base. Even if heir Mueller reveals nothing different from his report, and makes no recommendations- again; they will demand Trump be impeached. They have too much hatred and political capital invested to turn back now.

Remember Nadler claiming he had new evidence Mueller's investigation team didn't? How did that turn out? Never brought forward was it? Nadler doesn't care what Mueller has to say. He will never change his tune.

Mueller, a man mutually respected and above approach

He lost that respect when he turned his investigation team in to a Hillary and Obama campaign contributor booster club; and allowed CIA agents that were severely anti Trump to serve on it.

Throw in his grade school stupidity in allowing his legal team to go to court unprepared when charging Russian bot companies; and you can add incompetence to his resume.

He never once questioned the legality of what he was doing when his investigation turned from Russian collusion to everything Trump; nor if the very investigation he was conducting was based on illegally gained information.  Carter Page, the Trojan Horse used to start it all was never even questioned by Comey or Mueller; much the less charged with anything.

In the end Mueller proved no collusion with Russia, not one person from Trump's administration charged or convicted of it; but left obstruction open- using Trump's comments rather actions.  So the Democrats could have their red meat for continued investigations.

Fuck Comey and Mueller; may these two Establishment shit stains never serve the people again in any capacity.

Trump stated he was exonerated by Mueller:  BULLSHIT

Defenders of this scum bag need a gut check, cause he is the scummiest POS ever to reside in our White House.

The best part being, it was a second hand house where negroes had been residing. Bet U that ate at him a bit.

How many GOP defenders around here have read entire report?

Regarding Mr. Mueller speaking on Wednesday

Nope Ronin:

Earlier Monday, Mueller spokesman Jim Popkin said the former FBI director would not veer from his written conclusions. He added that the former special counsel intended to deliver an opening statement that is expected to closely track his first public remarks about the case in May when he   defended the investigation   he supervised, and refused to clear President Donald Trump of criminal  wrongdoing, asserting that bringing obstruction charges was "not an option" because of Justice Department policy against prosecuting a sitting president.

In a brief televised statement in May, Mueller recounted his report's overall findings, saying Russia launched a "concerted" effort to interfere with the 2016 election. "There were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American," he said.

He is, I guess, universally adjudged innocent by reason of stupidity which nobody is even trying to deny including The Dumbass Carter Page...

If Mueller does change some minds, and the impeachment ;process begins, will you accept it ?

i believe the 'right' is well aware of the mental midgets guilt, but it obviously doesn't matter.

Trump and Barr are going to be remembered in history, and it ain't gonna b e flattering

How many, pronouncing J bagsinnocenc, have read Muellers' entire report, for the second time i inquire ?

Admitted, i only read part, as that was all that was required for me after followiNg this shit storm,,,

have any of you read it at all...?

For over 2 years the left said the Mueller report would be the end all. When the report was released they did their usual flip flop and said they want more info than the report had given. 

Dem congressmen and women have said less than 4% of Americans read the entire 448 pages. Not a good sign that the American majority will tune in to the Dem silly show tomorrow.

The Dem shit show has been exquisitely devoid of anything of substance.

Mueller effectively refused to answer one relevant pertinent question a Republican posed.

Mueller effectively kissed the ass of every Democrat on the panel.

Mueller effectively showed through his answers, or lack thereof that he knew virtually nothing that was in the report and essentially didn't even know who authored it.

It looks like mueller got his deputy to act as a crutch for him and testify with him, because he apparently doesn’t understand his own report enough to testify like a big boy on his own.

as someone said on Twitter, it’s looking like the “mueller report “ will resemble constanza working on the  Penske file.
