US House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler responds to Robert Mueller conference | USA TODAY US House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler responds to Robert Mueller conference | USA TODAYGood afternoon first, I want to thank special counsel, Robert Mueller, for his service to our nation. Over the past 2 years, mr. Mueller and Justine, the prosecutors and investigators worked tirelessly to follow the facts and pursue Justice to the furthest extent allowed criminal charges against the president. The special counsel has clearly demonstrated that President Trump is lying. He is lying about the special counsel, findings and, above all, lying and saying that the special counsel found no obstruction and no collusion. This morning, special counsel Mueller reaffirmed his report. It found substantial evidence that Russia are political system, that the Trump campaign benefited from Russian interference that Trump in those around him repeatedly welcome to Russia’s support and that throughout the subsequent investigation, Trump short to obstruct time and time again. Special counsel, Mueller today repeat Central points which are critical for the American people, did not exonerate the president of the United States of obstruction of justice to obstruction of justice, of which special counsel Mueller found. Substantial evidence is a serious crime that strikes at the core of our Justice. Three, the Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the president accountable for his misconduct. Unfortunately, special counsel Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the president, because the Department of Justice policy prevents a sitting president from being prosecuted. That policy, in my opinion, is wrong, is highlighted this morning before Congress to respond to the crimes and other a President Trump. We will do so make no mistake. No one, not even the president of the United States, is above the law, Peter him to testify in front of Congress impeachment question at this point: all options are on the table and nothing should be ruled out with special counsel. Mueller said loud and clear is that President Trump is when he says no collusion, no obstruction and that he was exonerated is mother wanted to exonerate the president from having committed a crime he would have said so. Instead, it’s clear that destruction of Justice which he found substantial evidence of, is a serious crime that strikes at the core of our justice system and that the constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the president accountable. That’S exactly what we will do. The president’s response to repeatedly lied to the American people and ignore all congressional subpoenas is Amaro and I’m waffle. No one is above the law and we will hold the president accountable. We are following through in our investigation. We will status, as they seem indicated. Mr Miller told us a lot of what we need to hear today is to be clear and white set. The Trump campaign benefited from Russia’s interference that Trump in those around him repeatedly welcomed support navigation. Over and over again, the president about the special counsel’s findings lying and saying that the special counsel found no obstruction and no conclusion – and I should add the Attorney General – is lying about that too. That is serious and we will take action to hold the president accountable for his misconduct. No one, not even the president, is above the law. Thank you very much. Jerrold Nadler addresses the Robert Mueller conference.
