The BuzzFeed article on Michael Cohen that he was directed by President Trump to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project, has Democrats talking impeachment.
Remember, the Trump Tower Moscow project never existed until a letter of intent proved otherwise.
It was also just weeks ago that I wrote about a second Trump Tower outside the capital of Russia.
For the longest time, Democrats were hesitant to use the “I” word, but with this new report by BuzzFeed which has yet to be confirmed, Democrats are speaking out.
It should be noted that in BuzzFeed’s article, other sources were used to confirm these allegations.
Per BuzzFeed, Special Counsel Mueller’s office interviewed multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and used internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Twitter:
“The allegation that the President of the United States may have suborned perjury before our committee in an effort to curtail the investigation and cover up his business dealings with Russia is among the most serious to date. We will do what’s necessary to find out if it’s true.”
With the Democrats in control of the House, they will have the opportunity to proceed without Devin Nunes obstructing every step of the way who may have his own issues with Mueller’s prosecutors.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote on Twitter:
“We know that the President has engaged in a long pattern of obstruction. Directing a subordinate to lie to Congress is a federal crime. The @HouseJudiciary Committee’s job is to get to the bottom of it, and we will do that work.”
This is a breaking news story and updates will be posted as it becomes available.
