Representative Eric Swalwell On GOP’s List Of Trump Scandals: ‘They Know’ | The Last Word | MSNBC

if you’re having trouble keeping track of the very long list of trump scandals in Trump Administration scandals here’s something that really helps according to a Republicans on Capitol Hill are circulating a spreadsheet among themselves listing all of the trumps candles they have refused to investigate as they prepare for what Democrats might investigate if Democrats take back the house in November here is Republicans list potential Trump investigations according to axios Trump tax returns Trump family businesses Trump’s dealings with Russia the payment to Stormy Daniels James comey’s firing Trump’s firing of attorney is Trump’s proposed transgender ban for the military treasury secretary Steven mnuchin’s business dealings White House staff personal email use cabinet secretary travel office expenses and other misuse perks discussion of classified formation at Mar-A-Lago Jared kushner’s ethics law compliance dismissal of members of the EPA Board of scientific counselors the travel ban family separation policy hurricane response in Puerto Rico election security and how attempts and White House security clearances Republicans May hope that the list will scare the Trump base to the poles to protect Donald Trump from any of those investigations but as Democratic congressman swalwell tweeted a House GOP went so far as to make a list of objectionable conduct by Donald Trump so if they know why won’t they investigate this stuff Congressman Eric swalwell a Democrat from California and member of the intelligence and Judiciary committees and Carson swalwell that was one of your angry or tweets about this but it is kind of extraordinary to watch the Republicans basically draw up preliminary outlines of an overall indictment of the ethics of the Trump Administration the Trump family and then say about the danger to the country is the piss will be investigated if good evening Lawrence you almost went into Brian Williams is an hour they’re not going through that list but you know what was so concerned for me and you know it lawyer asked you know their client you’ll tell me everything that you did and they compiled this long list of their clients exposure except that’s the problem the Republicans view Donald Trump is their client is someone who they’re supposed to protect then they put this list out there to their donors to their base as a reason that they must keep the majority not to investigate all of this alarming conduct but to protect the president from it and so thank you for the list I say and I can the American people have Democrats are given the responsibility of leading we will look into all of this alarming conduct because we do believe that corruption is keeping us back from addressing issues of protecting Healthcare making sure paychecks grow and protecting our environment so thank you to the Republicans but we’ll do the right thing with the list and you may have a thing or two of that list including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s strange business since he has been in office sunset tonight about impeachment he’s talking about impeachment more than ever because he’s obviously worried about a democratic house beginning impeachment proceedings against him and he said to Bloomberg you cannot impeach a president who’s doing a good job your reaction to that you shouldn’t worry we’re not going to impeach a president whose doing a good job that a problem though is he’s not a president who is doing a good job but we can assure him is that we will give him the fairest investigation that he’s never given anyone that there will not be a rush to judgment that we will not conduct thorough investigations and if he has crossed red lines he’s not above the law and we will make sure and impenetrable bipartisan is made out to the American people but he he doesn’t have to worry about someone doing a good job losing their job news interview he did again in his Bloomberg interview today I talked about impeachment repeatedly he offered the the theory on impeachment that not only that you cannot impeach a president doing a good job but there’s a very high bar to get over and that all legal Scholars agree that it’s impossible to reach that and anything like that in what we’ve seen the evidence against Donald Trump so the president’s notion that there’s nothing out there yet that would even begin to suggest the possibility of impeachment talking about impeachment is because he doesn’t want to talk about what everyday Americans want to talk about and we’ll go to the polls on again that their health care costs are going to go up is open enrollment starts this fall that wages are actually in Decline and that only the wealthiest have benefited from tax cuts as well as that you know right now Lawrence what we’re seeing and its countries that hard-working people continue to work hard and it’s not adding up too much over 70% of Americans have less than $1,000 in her savings account he doesn’t want us to talk about any of that he doesn’t want to talk about the fact that he just denied millions of federal workers a pay increase that they rightfully deserve for working so hard so we’re going to talk about those issues but we’re also going to be able to walk and chew gum and investigate his alarming conduct Eric swalwell thank you very much for Janice tonight
