INTERVIEW – JOE DIGENOVA – Legal analyst and former U.S. Attorney to the District of Columbia – discussed the upcoming House Dem hearings on the Mueller Report and Hillary’s claims that obstruction occurred.
- Democrats begin public airing of Mueller report. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says it’s “case closed.” But Democrats are just getting started with Robert Mueller. House Democrats have scheduled a series of hearings this coming week on the special counsel’s report as they intensify their focus on the Russia probe and pick up the pace on an investigative “path” — in the words of Speaker Nancy Pelosi — that some of them hope leads to impeachment of the president. In doing so, they are trying to draw the public’s attention on the allegations that Trump sought to obstruct a federal investigation and they want highlight his campaign’s contacts with Russia in the 2016 election. And they will lay the groundwork for an appearance from Mueller himself, despite his stated desire to avoid the spotlight.
- Hillary Clinton: ‘You cannot read’ Mueller’s report without concluding obstruction ‘occurred’ (Fox News) Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said on Saturday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report clearly showed that obstruction of justice “occurred” during the Russia investigation. “If you take the time to read the Mueller report, actually read it … you come to two inescapable conclusions,” she said while speaking at her alma mater Wellesley College. Those conclusions, she said, were that Russia conducted a “sweeping” attempt to interfere in the 2016 election and that “obstruction of justice occurred.” “You cannot read the report, chapter and verse, fact after fact, without reaching those conclusions,” she said, according to a video posted by The Hill.
