In an interview on ABC’s ‘This Week’ with George Stephanopoulos, Representative Chris Stwart (R-Utah) said that the democrats are in big trouble with regards to their impeachment narrative because their evidence is “crumbling.”
In pointed questioning of the former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovich, Stewart had her admit that she did not have any information into criminal activity committed by the President.
After interviewing Yovanovich, Stewart predicted that support for impeachment would wane end of the public hearings.
It appears that House Democrats are in agreement because, today, the began a new investigation into whether President Trump lied to Mueller during the Russia collusion investigation.
According to a report from The Hill:
Democrats are looking into President Trump’s potential obstruction of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, including whether the president misled Mueller, as part of the impeachment inquiry, a House Judiciary Committee counsel told a panel of federal circuit court judges on Monday.
House Democrats, who have repeatedly pushed for the urgent release of redacted grand jury materials stemming from Mueller’s probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, made the case for the documents’ continued relevance, even as the impeachment inquiry zeroes in on Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
In arguments before a panel of appellate judges of the D.C. Circuit Court, House attorney Douglas Letter cited the grand jury testimony of Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort in particular. Manafort’s statements could shed light on whether written responses Trump provided to the special counsel were untruthful, Letter said.
