Rep. Adam Schiff Blasts Trump During Mueller Testimony

"This is also a story about money — about greed and corruption." Rep. Adam Schiff eviscerated President Trump during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's hearing on Wednesday.

Go Forward With Impeachment Only "With Our Strongest Possible Hand"

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) gave a powerful statement ahead of Robert Mueller’s testimony to Congress. the story doesn't end here either. For your report also tells a story about lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies to obstruct an investigation into the most serious attack on our democracy by a foreign power in our history.

“Today, the American people heard directly about what the special counsel investigation uncovered, as to Russia's interference of the 2016 election and the president's cooperation with it and obstruction of justice. Mueller made clear that the president is not exonerated. Mueller found evidence of obstruction of justice and abuses of power by the president. He said--the report said president would be indicted for obstruction of justice after he leaves offices.

Mueller found that Trump would and did benefit from Russia's help and that the campaign welcomed that help. Mueller found multiple instances where all three elements for charging criminal obstruction of justice were met. Trying to fire the special counsel in order to stop the investigation, trying to have people lie and cover up for him for the same purpose, trying to limit or impede or constrict the special counsel's investigation, trying to tamper with witnesses, tamper with witnesses cooperating with investigators. All of these were found with evident great evidence.

President Trump went to great lengths to obstruct this special counsel's investigation. Anyone else who acted in this way, if they were not the sitting president, would face criminal prosecution, would face indictments. Only the office of legal counsel's opinion that you cannot indict a sitting president has saved or is saving the president from indictment because all the elements of these crimes were found with considerate--with substantial evidence and the people have now heard this. The president's chant of no obstruction is nonsense. His chant that he's been totally exonerated is a simple life.”

    Makes tremendous amount of sense. But the news is, Mueller failed in his mission. trump is a traitor and he has to be impeached, convicted and jailed. This man (trump) is not our president. A vote for trump was/is a vote for putin.

    Were you people watching the same hearing? The one point of contention, him not being “exonerated” was shown to be complete bullshit. Please please please please have impeachment hearings. Please do. What was already going to be a 2020 landslide for trump might be the greatest election victory of my lifetime.

    Mueller admitted openly that trump did not impede his investigation in any way. Dems can put their spin on it all they want, but this investigation is finally dead.

    Why Schiff didn't tell about the blatant lies of Mueller? Mueller's fabricated report is to be challenged in the Court. Federal Election Commission reports that voting and counting machines kept in all states were not plugged in internet and therefore Russians couldn't cyber attack American election. FEC clarification quashes the entire Mueller report. Mueller report is the manipulated files prepared by Rosenstein. It's known to all that Americans stood in long lines in the November 2016 general election and voted to elect a president. There's also no obstruction of justice because Trump didn't use his power as POTUS to fire Mueller. Mueller was a colleague and is a friend of Comey. What justice can we expect from this man? Mueller is not a judge but a cop (FBI) and he has used the criminal mind of a cop to weave a fabricated story. Manafort, Stone, Papadopaulos, Flynn, Page and others have nothing to do with American election. Instead of focusing on Russian collusion, crooked Mueller has produced a 448 pages fiction by including these characters. Friendly, diplomatic meetings with diplomats by team Trump at Trump Tower are shown as treason and betrayal. Did president elect Trump and his team reveal atomic secrets? Mueller was stupid enough in not realizing that Trump had not moved to the White House at that time and all files were still in the custody of Obama. Who's Mueller to exonerate the POTUS? He's not a judge. GOP should challenge Mueller's falsified report in the court.

    Schiff has been saying he's seen the evidence of collusion since the beginning - so why hasn't he produced it? This investigation has only proven that the Democrats are uncontrolled sore losers and have no regard to the spending of tax payers’ money to expose it.
