Adam Schiff: This Country Won’t ‘Survive Another Four Years’ of President Trump

They’re rallying around William Barr. Trump not so much

A former USA attorney for SC says he signed a letter with other former federal prosecutors across the country saying President Donald Trump's conduct in trying to interfere with the Mueller investigation rises to the level of a criminal obstruction of justice charge.

The 400-plus page letter says the Mueller report - summarizing the results of a 22-month investigation - found evidence of obstruction of justice against Trump so compelling that any other person than a sitting president would now be facing "multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice". "We did not perceive it as any kind of threat or something sinister", Burck said in a statement.

Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff voiced concerned Sunday that the United States would not be able to "survive another four years" of President Donald Trump, warning that the president has divided Americans instead of uniting them.

The House Judiciary Committee voted last week to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for rejecting subpoenas to testify and to give Congress access to the full, unredacted Mueller report.

Judiciary Democrats are also demanding former White House Counsel Don McGahn turn over documents to the committee related to the Russian Federation investigation. "Democrats are demanding documents they know they have no legal right to see - including confidential communications between the President and foreign leaders and grand jury information that can not be disclosed under the law".

But after the report was released, detailing the range of actions Trump took to try to impede the inquiry, McGahn made a decision to pass on putting out a statement supportive of the president.

In an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, Giuliani said McGahn was "wrong" about what Trump asked him and "hopelessly confused". McGahn initially entertained the White House request.

Don McGahn leaves the White House on August 30, 2018.

The Mueller report details numerous instances in which Trump potentially committed obstruction of justice, though Mueller did not reach a conclusion on the question. McGahn prepared to resign at one point rather than carry out Trump's instructions.

Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said it's Congress' "first priority" to have Mueller appear now that a copy of his redacted report has been made public. Mr. McGahn declined to go along but told Mr. Mueller about the encounters.
