#MuellerHearings are about to begin.
Nadler opening statement: “In the Paul Manafort case alone, you recovered as much as $42 million—so that the cost of your investigation to the taxpayers approaches ZERO.”
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's opening statement: "...First, our investigation found that the Russian government interfered in our election in sweeping and systematic fashion..."
#MuellerHearings #Maddow…
"Over the course of my career, I’ve seen a number of challenges to our democracy. The Russian government’s effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious...this deserves the attention of every American."
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Nadler: “Did your report completely and totally exonerate the president?”

Robert Mueller: “NO.”
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Nadler: “Can the president be indicted once he leaves office?”

Robert Mueller: “True.”
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Mueller confirms that under Justice Department policy, Trump could legally be prosecuted for obstruction of justice crimes after he leaves office.
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Rep. Johnson gets Mueller to confirm that Trump asked Don McGahn to fire him and that the DOJ decided Mueller had no conflicts that interfered with his serving as special counsel.
Another Trump lie debunked.

Mueller says he discussed the FBI director job with Trump before being appointed special counsel in 2017 — but “not as a candidate.” Gohmert cuts off Mueller before he can elaborate.
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
IMPORTANT: Mueller just confirmed that he did not make a determination on bringing charges against Trump because of OLC regulations prohibit charging a sitting president and that Trump can be charged with obstruction when he leaves office.
.@TedLieu: “You did not indict Donald Trump is because of the OLC opinion stating that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?”

MUELLER: “That is correct.”

Barr lied when he said OLC opinion did NOT impact Mueller’s decision. #MuellerHearings
.@RepRaskin: "You found evidence that the President engaged in efforts to encourage witnesses not to cooperate with the investigation."

Mueller: "That's correct."
.@RepRichmond: So it's fair to say the President tried to protect himself by asking staff to falsify records relevant to an ongoing investigation?

Mueller: I would say that's generally a summary.
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
.@RepValDemings : "Lies by Trump campaign officials and administration officials impeded your investigation."

Mueller: "I would generally agree with that."
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
.@RepAdamSchiff's opening statement emphasizes "Trump and his campaign's greed, lies, and disloyalty to country." 🔥
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
“When asked if the Russians intervene again, will you take their help, Mr. President, ‘why not’ was the essence of his answer. ‘Everyone does it.’

No, Mr. President, they don’t” —@RepAdamSchiff
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
Mueller characterizes WikiLeaks as "a hostile intelligence service" and says the Trump campaign's praise of WikiLeaks was "problematic," then adds: "Problematic is an understatement...Certainly calls for an investigation."
#MuellerHearings #Maddow
SCHIFF: “Knowingly accepting foreign assistance during a presidential campaign is an unethical thing to do.”
MUELLER: "And a crime."

SCHIFF: "Can we also agree it's also unpatriotic?"
SCHIFF: "And wrong"
