‘We’re one bad email away’ from proving House GOP is guilty of obstructing justice: senator

In a new podcast posted by Yahoo News, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) has strong words for the House GOP, which did little to facilitate Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. In fact, they actively worked against it, Whitehouse claims.

“Whether it amounts to criminal conduct, clearly the efforts of the House Republicans were designed to impede and throw sticks into the spokes of the Mueller investigation,” Whitehouse says.

“To discredit it, foul it up, to provide alternative narratives, potentially even to communicate to potential witnesses or jurors their alternative narratives and thereby influence the proceedings … all of that,” Whitehouse asserts.

“The only thing that stops that being a crime is the contact with Trump’s lawyers and the corrupt intent. The other elements are all there,” he said.”You can show in abundance that they tried to interfere with the Mueller investigation.”

 “Whether they did that with the requisite corrupt intent … We’re one bad email away,” he concludes. “It definitely needs to be investigated.”
