Nadler: Mueller testimony could begin Trump impeachment proceedings

US girds for Mueller testimony Nadler: Mueller Report Shows Substantial Evidence Trump ‘Guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors’

Democrats are deeply divided on whether to pursue an impeachment inquiry, and Mueller's public testimony may provide an opportunity for the party to unify and decide whether impeachment proceedings should go forward or not.

Mueller, who for almost two years dug into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and Trump's efforts to impede his probe, will appear under subpoena separately before the House of Representatives Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

They also enumerated at least 10 instances where Trump sought to impede the investigation, with strong evidence in support of obstruction of justice allegations.

U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after delivering a statement on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election at the Justice Department in Washington, U.S., May 29, 2019.

As House Oversight Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) explained on Sunday, Nadler said the importance of having special counsel Robert Mueller testify publicly is to make sure Americans truly understand the findings in his investigation.

Schiff on Sunday was asked about news last week that the US attorney's office in the Southern District of NY has concluded its campaign finance investigation centered on Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney.

For Democrats, a goal at the hearing will be to get Mueller to help connect evidence pointing to misconduct into a "meaningful and compelling account" for the public, said the aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The report said Trump tried to remove Mueller and then cover up his actions; sought to persuade former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to direct the Russian Federation probe away from the campaign; and appeared to dangle pardons before former campaign manager Paul Manafort and personal lawyer Michael Cohen while they faced federal prosecution.

"We hope it won't end up being a dud", Nadler said of Mueller's testimony. "That was not true, that it found no obstruction, that is not true". Republicans pledged sharp questioning of the special counsel about what they see as a "one-sided" Russian Federation investigation.

Nadler says lawmakers will ask Mueller some very specific questions about parts of the report.

Still, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee plan to focus on a narrow set of episodes laid out in the report to direct Americans' attention to what they see as the most egregious examples of Trump's conduct, which point to obstruction of justice.

But the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's deep reticence to become embroiled in politics, and Republican plans to turn the hearings into a reality TV-like partisan brawl, threaten to leave Americans no less confused than when Mueller's dense, 448-page report was released in April. He accused Democrats "going after things that we've already known".
