Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) has indicated that there is now more than enough evidence to probe President Trump for obstruction of justice. The guilty plea of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has triggered attacks on the embattled president who might now have only a few months, rather than years, left in office.
The impact of the Flynn confession threatens to destabilize the whole Trump administration and throw the government into turmoil.
“There is now more than enough evidence to form the basis of a congressional investigation into the President’s obstruction of justice—and it is long past time that the House Committee on the Judiciary engage on this matter. I urge Chairman Goodlatte to finally begin our oversight work without delay,” Nadler said in a statement.
Trump is deep in his troubles now. Russia has been his Achilles heel since being inaugurated in 2016. He has never quite managed to brush off claims of collusion with the Russian government over the hacking of DNC servers and the exchange of favors involving unilateral lifting of sanctions against Russia. The act was classed as being state-sponsored and it now seems that many around Trump were aware of this fact. Jared Kushner — Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House Senior Adviser — has been implicated for his meeting with senior Russian officials.
The president must be feeling like the walls are caving in on him and his opponents are rubbing their hands together in glee at the thought that he is finally going to get what is owed to him. His tenure as president has been a wild ride that finally looks to be coming to a harsh stop.
