Starr report veteran says Trump's crimes are 'thousandfold' worse

Quote:
A member of the independent counsel team that recommended the impeachment of President Bill Clinton says that President Trump’s attempts to obstruct justice are “blunter by a thousandfold” than anything Clinton did and more than justifies the House Judiciary Committee opening impeachment proceedings.

Rep. Lieu says AG needs to be held in contempt, impeachment might be the only way to justice

Quote:

Since the Mueller report on the Trump 2015-2016 presidential campaign was semi-released, the White House has spent time alternating between lying openly about the contents of the report, while shielding the true breadth of the report from everyone, even the Legislative Branch of our Democracy. The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee, and the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committees have been trying to line up White House officials as well as Attorney General William Barr to testify on the contents of not only the Mueller report, but those individuals’ participation in anything relating to that report. It is not simply the prerogative of the Legislative Branch to do so, it is their sworn duty to uphold the powers of their office as a check to the potentially corrupted powers of the Executive Branch.

Democratic Representative Ted Lieu of California spoke with political blogger and Washington Post op-ed writer Greg Sargent about the problems being faced by representatives during this process. The main problem, of course, is that the Trump administration continues to obstruct justice as they attempt to hide how they illegally obstructed justice. The main trick being employed is to deny House and Senate committee requests to answer questions on the record. Most recently, Attorney General William Barr began hemming and hawing over whether or not he would testify. Barr’s demands, as reported, seem to consist of him being allowed to testify in a lying sort of way, including no on the record questioning concerning the heavily redacted version of the Mueller report his department released.

This would leave House representatives no choice but to subpoena people like Barr. However, this process could be drawn out for quite some time. Rep. Lieu explains that while not all Democrats are ready to begin the process of impeachment against Donald Trump, the current obstruction into any inquiry could change a lot of minds, as the powers afforded Congress during impeachment proceedings far outweigh the ones available to them now.

“I don’t think the caucus is there in terms of launching an impeachment inquiry into obstruction of justice,” Lieu told me. But he added: “If it turns out we can’t investigate, because the White House is not complying with anything that Congress requests, then I think the caucus would support an article of impeachment on obstructing Congress in order to maximize our court position.”

Rep. Lieu also told Sargent that he believes the House should “vote to hold Barr in contempt very quickly,” if Barr doesn’t give up the full Mueller report

Mueller report shows Trump’s repeated efforts to obstruct
Quote:


Rachel Maddow recalls an incident detailed in Volume II of the Mueller report between the president and Corey Lewandowski that shows how Trump’s actions check all the boxes for obstruction of justice, as anonymous sources close to Attorney General William Barr try to change the narrative about how he handled the report.

Former U.S. deputy attorney general: If Trump was not president, he would be indicted
Reuters Reuters•April 28, 2019
Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former top Justice Department official Sally Yates said on Sunday that if Donald Trump were not president, he would have been indicted on obstruction charges in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Yates, a career federal prosecutor who rose to acting attorney general before Trump fired her in 2017 less than two weeks into his presidency, told NBC's "Meet the Press" the Republican president was shielded by department guidelines that a sitting president should not be indicted.

"I've personally prosecuted obstruction cases on far, far less evidence than this," Yates said. "And yes, I believe, if he were not the president of the United States, he would likely be indicted on obstruction."

Watch Trump campaign manager bust Trump for obstruction plot
In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber examines a key revelation in the Mueller report, that when Trump aides refused to carry out Trump’s bidding, Trump turned to someone off the government payroll – former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Melber breaks down how he pressed Lewandowski on “The Beat” in February about whether Trump asked him to get involved with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions or the DOJ probe and Lewandowski flatly denied it, but now the Mueller report reveals that under penalty of perjury, Lewandowski himself admitted that Trump asked him to get involved with Sessions. Melber notes one explanation could relate to reports that Trump learns about the Mueller probe from watching television and that Lewandowski "calculated that he could stay on Donald Trump's good side by deceiving his old boss on TV, while telling the truth about his old boss" to Mueller.

Full Cicilline: 'Appropriate' for Democrats to start impeachment inquiry if McGahn doesn't show
Quote:

In an interview with MTP Daily, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) says that the White House's reported plan to invoke executive privilege and block former White House counsel Don McGahn's from testifying would justify the launch of an impeachment inquiry.

GOP Ex-Lawmaker Demands Impeachment Of Trump, Resignation Of Pence

HuffPost Lee Moran,HuffPost•May 24, 2019
Quote:
Former Rep. Tom Coleman (R-Mo.) has penned a blistering op-ed calling for the impeachment of “illegitimate” President Donald Trump.

Coleman, in his piece for The Kansas City Star published Thursday titled “Trump, Pence are illegitimate. Impeach them,” argued that if Trump was impeached, then Vice President Mike Pence should resign as otherwise “the lingering stench of corruption” would trail his administration.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Coleman wrote, showed Trump and members of his team had “on multiple occasions welcomed Russian interference on his behalf during the 2016 presidential campaign.” Therefore, Coleman reasoned, “the president’s election victory brought forth nothing less than an illegitimate president.”

Coleman, who has criticized Trump in the past and opposed his candidacy, was voted out of Congress after 17 years in 1993.

He noted in his op-ed that House Democrats were divided over whether to begin impeachment proceedings. But “critical times require exceptional leadership,” he wrote, suggesting the “only viable option available” is for the Democratic-controlled House “to open its own investigation, hold public hearings and then determine if they should pursue removal of the president through impeachment.”

“The public would conclude Democrats are no better than the Republicans who have enabled Trump for the past two years” if they did not move to impeach him, Coleman wrote.

He concluded with this warning:

It could hand Trump a second term. Failure to pursue impeachment is to condone wrongdoing. To condone wrongdoing is to encourage more of it. To encourage wrongdoing is to give up on the rule of law and our democracy. To give up on the rule of law and democracy invites autocracy and eventually dictatorship. History has taught us this outcome. In my lifetime, it has occurred in other places including the Soviet Union and Germany, as well as in Russia and Venezuela today.

Coleman in February joined 25 other previous GOP members of Congress in calling for the termination of Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to fund his promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mueller wrote indictments charging Trump with obstruction and witness tampering, Michael Wolff claims

Quote:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller drafted indictments against Donald Trump before ultimately deciding against charging the sitting president with obstruction of justice, according to a new book penned by author Michael Wolff.

The alleged three-count obstruction of justice indictment was immediately disputed by a spokesperson for the special counsel after first being reported on Tuesday. The Guardian reportedly viewed the indictment documents while reviewing a copy of the book Siege: Trump Under Fire.
