Rudy Giuliani strikes Mueller's response to the pathetic obstruction
Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has clearly revealed the indecisiveness of the special lawyer in hindering the claims of justice against the president, calling him" totally inappropriate and totally unethical "and" pathetic "in an interview with Fox News Tuesday night.
Giuliani told Fox "The Ingraham Angle" that Robert Mueller's findings, as he refers to the blocking indictment, were "weak", criticizing the FBI officer for not having "made a decision." ] In his letter Marking the report, General Prosecutor Bar said that Muller described the facts of his investigation into charges of impeding justice, but did not decide whether Mr Trump had committed a crime and deferred the matter to Bar. The report "does not conclude that the president has committed a crime, he also does not justify it," he quotes Barry Muller as a writer. But Bar said he and Deputy Chief Prosecutor Rod Rosenstein have determined that the evidence available is insufficient to establish
Here are some other highlights from Juliani's conversation:
- Giuliani suggested that the former FBI Director James is guilty of "gross negligence" for failing to properly investigate allegations of a Russian deal. "He is to blame not only for Hillary, he must be investigated, he must be investigated," said Juliani.
- Giuliani said that "half of" the prosecutors from Muller's team are "completely unethical prosecutors, such as prosecutors, that I would be fired in two minutes when I was a US lawyer." He said Mueller's leading lawyer Andrew Weissman "terrible" and "never to approach a courtroom all his life," later questioning his ethics that he is a supposed supporter of Hillary Clinton.
- In connection with the potential impeachment process, Juliane told Fox that the President's Legal Team was "absolutely" prepared for the next. "We have a very, very long multifaceted note written already that we can cut and set depending on what day," said Juliani.
Rashida Tlaib insists with a resolution on impeachment
Rep. Rashida Tleib, D-Michigan, a first-time MP who swore colorful to "remove" Mr Trump, has circulated the proposed resolution calling on the parliamentary judiciary committee to determine whether President Trump has committed crimes in impeachment in following the publication of Muller's report. She began to spread the text of her proposal on Monday night.
A spokesman told CBS News that he was doing this, but did not comment on the number of co-sponsors he expects to attract. Members should add their name to the resolution today. Below is a copy of the letter sent to colleagues from Tileb:
President Trump's actions before being officially placed as president of the United States are currently being investigated by the South County of New York and much of it is part of the completed report by independent investigator Robert Muller
However, the most dangerous threat to our democracy is President Trump's action to take the oath. "Various clauses in our US constitution set a dangerous precedent of these this is not yet fully investigated by this body, which has also vowed to respect the American constitution of interests that directly undermine our democracy
The resolution directs the Justice Commission to investigate whether President Trump has committed crimes, They can provide an open and transparent process for the sole purpose of ensuring that we know the truth and make sure that it does not go on and do not repeat itself.
I firmly believe that the Justice Commission's commission should look to whether President Trump has committed "High Crime and Transgressions" as stated in the US Constitution, and if the facts support these findings, Congress has begun an impeachment procedure. We believe the Justice Commission should consult the following and decide:
Whether President Trump's actions and his companies violate the foreign reward clause. Through President Trump's business in the United States and abroad, the president has received payments, regulatory approval, and other forms of direct and indirect financial benefits from foreign governments. Has President Trump committed crimes to deceive the United States by directing Michael Cohen to make unlawful payments to interfere and influence the presidential elections in 2016, which undermines the belief in elections and preserves political corruption .
Is the evidence of the special counselor on impediments to justice related to the actions and intentions of the president being in violation of federal law.
We all have vowed to defend our nation, and this begins by ensuring that no one, including the president of the United States, acts above the law. I appeal your support to the recommendation that the House of Commons' Justice Committee will open hearings, take testimony and issue summons to answer this question, which is fundamental to the rule of law and to preserving our democracy. "
Trump asks if the Justice Department reveals the scales
Mr Trump asked Tuesday on the Capitol Hill about Senator Lindsay Graham's call for a second special adviser to investigate the origin of Muller's probe , he said he wanted to see "How did all this happen."
"Those who are responsible for the Capitol Hill will watch," the president said, "but let's see how it all began. Did we have the best people in the justice who were trying to miss the scale to prevent Trump from being elected. "
On Monday, Graham told reporters:" I would like to find someone like Mr. Müller who can investigate what happened with FISA's orders, a counter-intelligence investigation. Am I right to be concerned? It looks pretty bad on his face – but there are people who will never accept Muller's report, but by any reasonable standard Muller investigates Trump's campaign. You can not tell this about the other side of the story. "
Pelosi: Impression is not on the table until he is on the table
Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi asks if there is a message for her members Commission, who may still want an imposition to be on the table after Bar's summary , expressed caution.
"Well I think we want – right now the message needs to be clear," Let's see this report. "I have great respect for Special Adviser Müller, but let's see the report." We do not need to be interpreted by a lawyer who is assigned to a job to make sure the president is above the law, and we need to see the report. our members. "
When a reporter wishes to clarify whether the impeachment is out of the table, she said," The Impiracy is not on the table until it's on the table, so it's not about it. that we are doing our work today, we are introducing the health bill today, We are talking about building green infrastructure, we are talking about clean governance, we are on the agenda, we are doing what we said we will do in the campaign, and we are doing so, so in addition to that, we honor our oath to support the constitution of the United States, and we must see the report so that we can do it.
