House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York stated on Friday his investigations of Donald Trump will continue, alleging the president has committed crimes and must be held accountable.
Nadler sought to dismiss the notion that former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony on Wednesday in any way weakened the Democrats’ claim that Trump is guilty of wrongdoing.
“Some have argued that because Director Mueller was reluctant to testify and seemed older than some remembered him, his work is somehow diminished, it is not,” the Democrat told reporters on Capitol Hill.
Nadler argued that Mueller’s testimony built upon the information contained in his report.
“He told us that Donald Trump obstructed justice and abused his office by tampering with witnesses, attempting to block the investigation and attempting to block the special counsel,” Nadler said.
“He told us that Donald Trump lied to the public about the Trump Tower meeting in New York. Lied to the public about his plans for Trump Tower in Moscow and lied in his written responses to the special counsel,” the lawmaker added.

Nadler then claimed that Mueller confirmed during his testimony that but for an opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel determining a sitting president cannot be indicted, Trump would have been.
“Indeed, it is clear any other citizen of this country who has behaved as the president has would have been charged with multiple crimes,” said Nadler.
Mueller actually corrected himself on Wednesday afternoon in his opening statement before the House Intelligence Committee. He said that he had misspoke in an exchange with Judiciary Committee member Rep. Ted Lieu of California regarding the OLC opinion preventing the special counsel from recommending charges against Trump.
“As we say in the report and as I said at the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime,” Mueller said.
Nadler indicated his committee will continue to seek testimony from “key fact witnesses,” noting the Judiciary Committee has authorized several additional subpoenas.
“Finally, today we are filing an application [in court] for the grand jury material underlying the Mueller report,” he said. “That information is critically important for our ability to examine witnesses, including former White House counsel Don McGhan and to investigate the president’s misconduct.”
Nadler also tried to tamp down talk that he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are at odds over the issue of impeaching Trump.
“I should note that the committee could not have brought these lawsuits without the help and support of Speaker Pelosi, who is as dedicated to holding the president accountable for his crimes as any of us gathered here today,” he said.
The chairman would not commit as to whether his committee would recommend impeachment over the objections of Pelosi.
“We will consider what we have to consider, including whether we should recommend articles of impeachment to the House,” he said. “There is no use speculating whether the speaker will agree with our decision at that point.”
In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Trump stated that he is innocent man.
“I didn’t do it. They create a phony crime,” Trump said. “And then, they say, ‘He obstructed.’ They said there was no collusion, but ‘he obstructed,’ and there has never been anything like this ever in this country.”
“This should never happen to another president of the United States again,” he insisted. “This is an absolute catastrophe for our country. This was a fake witch hunt.”
Following Mueller’s testimony on Wednesday, Trump’s personal attorney Jay Sekulow reiterated to Hannity that Mueller made no determination regarding Trump obstructing justice.

“And he said if you read his letter in his report, he said it presented difficult questions of law and fact, and you know what happens when you have difficult questions of law and fact? You don’t bring the case,” Sekulow said. “And guess what? They did not. Was the president exonerated? Absolutely.”
Queen AOC Suffers Major Setback – Her New York Buddy Declared Victory, But She Concedes Months Later
AOC celebrated her victory weeks ago, but the floor just dropped out!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just can’t get a win on her record—even her latest win just flipped on her into a big loss.
Not long ago, AOC celebrated with a fellow far-left Queens politician over a narrow primary victory. She even tweeted about it.
“We meet a machine with a movement.”
Uh, whatever that means. But she was responded to the assumed victory of her buddy, Tiffany Caban.
Apparently, before all the votes were tallied, these leftists were taking a victory lap.
Oo! Not so fast, AOC.
From Daily Wire:
Tiffany Cabán, the far-left candidate for Queens D.A., has lost the race for the Democratic nomination to Melinda Katz after a seven-week battle.
Cabán, who was backed by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), conceded the race on Tuesday night after she previously claimed that she won and Ocasio-Cortez appeared to acknowledge a similar false claim on Twitter.
Ouch. I guess the machine beat back this “movement”! Must be painful for AOC to be wrong about… well, everything.
This woman got her nomination by promising to abolish ICE. Um, hey AOC, how’s that working out?
She tried to push a radical, idiotic Green New Deal that has been mocked by Democrats and Republicans alike.
AOC also tanked a huge deal between Amazon and New York, costing jobs and billions of dollars.
She lost her war of words with Trump and Nancy Pelosi. Now her far-left buddy lost her primary race to an establishment Democrat.
Seems like AOC backs all the wrong horses, all the time.
What’s truly amazing is AOC and Caban just assumed victory, before all the votes were counted. They claimed this was a win for the far-left corner of the Democrats.
I guess after watching AOC humiliate herself over the last year, voters changed their minds. They rejected her ally, picking instead a traditional candidate.
Hmm… but I’m sure AOC won’t learn from this and start carrying herself with some humility and respect.
Maybe Queens should just hold a recall election today and get her out of Congress for good!
SHARE to tell AOC she’s the next politician to go!

Baltimore Sun Attacks Trump Supporter For Cleaning Up Streets of West Baltimore
“Whatever he says his motives were, Scott Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods,” and with that the Baltimore Sun kicked a gift horse right in the mouth.
Scott Pressler a Trump supporter was driven to action by the feud between Trump and Elijah Cummings. Scott gather over 170 non-political volunteers and cleaned up a section of the decrepit West Baltimore.
Instead of getting thanks the local paper ripped him for it, which again exposes the symbiotic relationship between the Dems and the media. The Sun wrote:
“It made for good photos, compelling videos and catchy Twitter hashtags. A group of conservatives rolled their pickup trucks into one of West Baltimore’s most impoverished neighborhoods Monday for a cleanup day.
Loaded down with trash bags and shovels, they cleared alleyways of old tires, food containers, paper and other debris. They pulled up weeds and cut away overgrown grass. The group posted before and after pictures on social media showing their progress.
The effort was organized by pro-Trump activist Scott Presler. He claimed the event was not political.
Yes, he was inspired to come by tweets from President Donald Trump describing the area, represented by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, as a “rodent infested mess.” But the visit wasn’t about showing support or animosity for either man, he said. Call us skeptical.”
They go on bashing Scott until they make a startling admission:
“Whatever he says his motives were, Mr. Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image of our failing urban cores.
That the poor people in this dilapidated city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods and all the public officials around them have failed as well. The bureaucratic, all-talk Democrats strike again.
If a crowd of volunteers could clean up 12 tons of trash in 12 hours, how incompetent and helpless must Baltimoreans be if they can’t manage it in decades, right?”
Correct. The message is not political but economic – what in hell are the Dems doing in these communities?
Sister Of El Paso Victim Calls Dems Pure Evil For Snubbing Trump Today
Beto O’Rourke and Texas Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar both stunned the political world when they trashed Trump in the wake of the El Paso tragedy and told him he was not welcome.
It was ugly politics – Beto needs to salvage his flailing campaign and seized the moment while Veronica wants the spotlight and all that it can bring – money, fame, etc.
Veronica even tried to explain away he behavior saying Trump didn’t have time to talk to her on the phone before (she was planning on blasting him and cornering him) so she would snub his visit.
No care for the people, just for themselves. Enter Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo, a sister to a victim of the El Paso tragedy who destroyed the hapless Dems.
She wrote on Facebook: “It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday.”
“I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda.”
“I lost my brother and sister-in-law on Saturday. My family and I are living a horrible nightmare. The visit from our President will be more than comforting to my family. He will not be here for a political agenda.”
“The two monsters from El Paso, who do not deserve to be mentioned by name nor even the nicknames I have for them, are just pure evil.”
“My brother’s body was still laying at Walmart on Saturday night when they decided to make this into a political issue and push their agenda by blaming our President for this.”
“Rather than focusing on the situation and the individual who destroyed the lives of many, these evil people selfishly turned this into a political war. ”
“I’m equally as angered by those two as I am with the person who took my brother and his wife from me, typing this I think I feel more animosity towards those two evil politicians.” – Deborah.
