Trump ‘hits all the buttons that founding fathers were concerned about’: House Dem | ABC News
Begin with you, you played a role in every modern and we’re going to show you or some of that evidence right there. You were on the staff of the house Judiciary Committee during the Nixon impeachment back in 1973. A member of that committee impeachment in 1998 and the impeachment of President Trump today is unconvinced that the allegations against President Trump or more serious in the charges against Nixon and Clinton make the concise. In that case, on the Nixon case, he used presidential powers to the influence improperly the election. He covered it up using the FBI, the CIA. He abused his power and was avvo articles of impeachment as a consequence, in the case of president from not only has he abused his power to improperly put his stuff on the on the on scale, for the election used a foreign power to do it, and that Is really kids all of the buttons that the founding fathers were concerned about the present I didn’t get the investigation aid went through was suspended, for was it was suspended, but he did use power to get that in and it’s not over. I mean he is using agents to get improper things done to try and tar his opponent in Rudy Giuliani. His agent is in Ukraine meeting with KGB train people today. This isn’t I’m going threat to the National Security Prison said yesterday that he’s going to take a report from Rudy Giuliani resume has to report to the attorney general. Well, that’s very interesting, but fact that Mr Giuliani, Mr Sondheim have acted. I to try and pervert the national interest to the personal interest is of tremendous concern. It’S an ongoing threat is the national security and its abuse of power. That is needs to be dealt with. Really it’s it’s depressing honestly. I wish the president’s Behavior had been better, including evidence laid out by Mueller and possible obstruction of justice in these articles of impeachment. My personal view is: we should proceed only on those items where we have direct evidence and there is a lot of direct relative to the abuse of power and Ukraine and the Russians relative to the Biden investigation. The Mueller report is a report. We don’t have direct witness testimony from so that, so I think we’d be on firm ground to move forward where we have direct evidence, as with the report tomorrow morning, at 9 a.m. from the intelligence and we’re going to be covering up. Democrats are going forward. You’Re not going to have the evidence, as you said, from the Mueller report. Don mcgahn hasn’t testified yet to the house. Judiciary Committee. You don’t have the evidence of Mick Mulvaney of Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, Rudy Giuliani of the president they’re at in the washing posted. This week and here’s what they had to say about that they said they don’t have enough evidence to drop articles of impeachment, but the witnesses and documents the mr. Trump is improperly blocking and too many Americans work basic picture of his Guild and American democracy cannot establish Its right to obtain them, the fight for them must not be giving up. Why not wait for those Witnesses has improperly withheld those Witnesses. The idea that there’s absolute immunity – that’s preposterous. There is no basis in law in the Constitution. For that, I’m mindful that. The last time we fully litigated that claimed it took a Teen Mom so to allow the president to engage in frivolous appeals so that the appeals extend beyond his term of office really is not what the Constitution provides. The Constitution says that Congress, the sole Authority when it comes to a pinch but answer the question is with the evidence we have. Can we make a sound conclusion? I think we can, but when we get our Presentation tomorrow for the entire committee, I think all of us will have a chance to say all of this direct evidence. Can we reach a conclusion and move forward as our responsibility under the Constitution provides, and I think the answer is play yes back in 1998, you warned Republicans against on doing that was your word of free election, expressing the will of the people here that you had To say America will be replaced by the partisan use of impeachment future presents will face elections than litigation. Then impeachment. What I should have said, I think I did say throughout the Clinton impeachment was first, you need a high crime and misdemeanor lying about sex is not an abuse of Presidential Power may be husband, and certainly Trump has done the same thing when it comes to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal we’re not proceeding on his lies about his Affairs. That has nothing to do with the abuse of Presidential Power name and it did in the Clinton administration of abuse of the power that is vested in the president and the founders were very concerned. That the president that they had created in the how do you normalize powers and if unchecked diffuse of that power was made to subvert the Constitutional order. There had to be a remedy, and that remedy was impeachment Pensacola Naval Base on on Friday by the national and FBI still investigating whether or not why the lot of concerns we have in a baby murdered a US person who was the reporter for the Washington Post, Murdered and dismembered that reporter we’ve never gotten accounting for that. So there are a lot of questions about Saudi Arabia has morning. Thank you over here to subscribe to our Channel and don’t forget to download the ABC News at 4.
