The House Intelligence Committee will investigate a bombshell report published Thursday that claims Donald Trump instructed his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Citing law enforcement officials, the report is the strongest indication yet that Trump criminally obstructed the investigation into his ties to Russia.
According to MSNBC that he views Trump’s actions “as powerful evidence of collusion.”
“I say that because it is a consciousness of guilt. He is asking Michael Cohen to lie because the truth would expose what was going on with the Russians early on in the candidacy,” Swalwell added.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn) called on Mueller to work with lawmakers to allow them properly investigate the president “before it’s too late.”
