According to Trey Gowdy, when former Special Counsel Robert Muller did not give what the Democrats wanted, their hope for an easy path to impeachment were dashed.
Gowdy claimed on Wednesday that some lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committees and House Judiciary were trying to apply a different legal standard to President Donald Trump.
He said, “Before Bob Mueller had uttered a single syllable of the report, 60 House Democrats moved to impeach him”. Further he also mentioned that, “What they wanted was Mueller to come in and do their job for them — to issue this roadmap that could lead them to impeachment”.
The hearings were tagged as an unmitigated train wreck by former South Carolina Republican congressman. He said, “In the criminal justice realm, you are cloaked with the presumption of innocence… unless and until the United States government proves each essential element of an offense beyond a reasonable doubt”.
For Rep. David Cicilline and other Democrats who questioned Mueller were actually trying to make the president accountable for his own vindication in Russian investigation.
Even Donald Trump bashed these Democrats and press members with his fiery remarks outside the White House. He pinpointed multiple news agencies and tagged them as “fake news”. He further added that the Democrats will never give up blaming him for crimes around Russian meddling in 2016 elections.
