#Mueller's already dealt fatal blows to Trump & GOP propagandists. He said 1) he didn’t indict b/c of OLC memo, 2) "no collusion no obstruction, total exoneration" is false, & 3) he won't address "origins" of the probe or Steele dossier b/c they’re under review. #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary 🤯🙄A Republican Sensenbrenner actually asked #Mueller this question: If you knew from the outset that your office wasn't going to indict the president (b/c OLC guideline prevented it), why even investigate him?
#MuellerHearings #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary #Mueller is calm but not exactly poker-faced. He just gave a disgusted sneer at crazy Louis Gohmert shouting that Trump "wasn't obstructing justice, he was pursuing justice because he's INNOCENT"! Even the gallery laughed. #MuellerHearings #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary GOP propagandist Matt Gaetz tries speed-talking whacky conspiracy theory that Steele Dossier was part of Russia's disinformation campaign & Trump Tower Meeting was a "set up"—by Fusion GPS. What a disgrace these jokers make of themselves. #Mueller doesn't bite. #MuellerHearing
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary Watch #MuellerHearing here via @CBSNews. They're adding graphics with relevant info & portions of the #MuellerReport in lawmakers' questions. (These are screenshots on questions about Flynn by Rep Correa) #MuellerHearings #Mueller
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary @CBSNews @RepLouCorrea 🥃It's too early for shots. But this was a moment. Republican congressman Ben Cline just stated at #MuellerHearing that President Obama could be indicted for obstruction of justice under #Mueller's analysis.🤦‍♀️🙄 #MuellerHearings
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary @CBSNews @RepLouCorrea Meanwhile…Back at the Bunker…Trump tweets false & dumb conclusion after quoting (who else) #FoxNews: "Mueller was asked whether or not the investigation was impeded in any way, and he said no.' IN OTHER WORDS, no obstruction." OTHER words=TRUMP words=PROPAGANDA #MuellerHearings
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary @CBSNews @RepLouCorrea 😃Self-described Republican "closer" Mike Johnson starts his propaganda smear screed against Mueller and his investigators with a TRUE self-description: "Over here, on the far right, sir" ✅ #MuellerReport #MuellerHearing #MuellerHearings #Mueller
@RepJerryNadler @HouseJudiciary @CBSNews @RepLouCorrea To recap the central fact confirmed in #MuellerHearing stated most clearly during questioning by @tedlieu:

THE reason #Mueller did not indict Trump is because of the OLC opinion.

Trump did commit crimes. Barr lied. #Impeachment is warranted (for both).
I’m shaking hearing @RepAdamSchiff’s opening statement telling the profoundly devastating story of Russia’s attack on our election and Trump’s disloyalty & his team of crooks and liars who made it a part of their campaign strategy. And it continues b/c Republicans are on board.
@RepAdamSchiff #Mueller said Trump using illegal content of #Wikileaks "problematic is an understatement." He added that it warranted investigation. And seemed to suggest there is an investigation into #DonJr's messaging with Wikileaks. #MuellerHearing #MuellerHearings
@RepAdamSchiff #Mueller really comes to life talking about #Wikileaks. Republicans wanted to get something to use to discredit Trump campaign collusion with Wikileaks, but ended up getting Mueller to suggest there's evidence Manafort met with #Assange!
#MuellerHearing #MuellerHearings
@RepAdamSchiff Republicans keep saying the Steele Dossier was the basis for the counterintelligence investigation. But the probe began BEFORE the FBI even knew of the dossier! Such a crazy talking point, it's Russia-level disinformation. Unreal @RepStefanik & other GOP push it. #MuellerHearing
@RepAdamSchiff @RepStefanik #Mueller says it, finally: Just because he didn't charge a conspiracy crime doesn't mean he failed to find evidence of conspiracy/collusion.

Welch lists that evidence:
-Manafort sharing polling data
-Trump Tower meeting
-Asking Russia to hack
-Wikileaks msgs
@RepAdamSchiff @RepStefanik @PeterWelch @WelchForVT 🔥"That's the stuff of counterintelligence nightmares"—@RepAdamSchiff, laying out one example of how Russia could have compromised Trump as POTUS. (Trump lied about the Moscow Tower project, yet Cohen call w/ Peskov would be recorded & could be held over him.)
@RepAdamSchiff @RepStefanik @PeterWelch @WelchForVT Here's the final exchange between #Mueller & Intel Cmte Chair Schiff. Schiff closed the afternoon #MuellerHearing as skillfully and powerfully as he opened it. Both brought me to tears, partly in despair for where we are, but heartened we have such extraordinary pubic servants.
@RepAdamSchiff @RepStefanik @PeterWelch @WelchForVT Perhaps the biggest bombshell today: #Mueller said that the FBI's counterintelligence investigation involving at least Trump's indicted National Security Adviser Michael #Flynn continues. *CURRENTLY*

#MuellerHearing #MuellerHearings
“You’re not an honest reporter”—Trump’s freaking out at the White House right now. Pointing at journalists, calling them “Fake news.” “The Democrats have nothing. And now they have less than nothing. The whole thing is collusion with the media. It’s a hoax.” #MuellerHearing
🤥Trump continues tirade on #MuellerHearing on White House lawn: “Mueller had no material. It was a fake set of facts. Part of the Democrats trying to do an illegal overthrow. We’re investigating it all.” #MuellerHearings #Mueller #ImpeachmentInquiryNow
Today's #MuellerHearings should make clear that the media was thoroughly wrong in dropping its focus on conspiracy w Russia, Vol 1 of the #MuellerReport. Some even adopted Trump's language of "no evidence" of collusion. There was in fact lots of damning evidence. (See THREAD ⬇️)
🔥@RepCummings: I'm begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on. Because if you want to have democracy intact for your children, and your children's children, and generations yet unborn, we have got to guard this moment. This is our watch. #MuellerHearings
😱*pubLic 😂
@RepCummings ICYM The last exchange between #Mueller & @RepAdamSchiff— focusing on Trump's profound disloyalty—was as powerful as Schiff's opening statement. Both brought me to tears, partly in despair for where we are, but heartened we have such extraordinary public servants. #MuellerHearing
