‘They don’t want the truth to come out’: Ex-Watergate prosecutor explains why GOP leaders ‘are part of the cover-up’

Published

Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks blasted congressional Republicans for prematurely closing the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes put up a list of people who were not interviewed by the Republican majority. The list includes former chief of staff Reince Priebus and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. Steven Miller and Sean Spicer were also not interviewed.

“What is your take away looking over this list of witnesses and the document the Democrats and House Intel put out,” Hayes asked Wine-Banks.

“My take away is the majority are part of the cover-up,” the former federal prosecutor concluded. “They don’t want the truth to come out.”

“They want to cut this off to please the president. They are not interested in the American people getting the full truth — which is what we deserve.”

“They need to have public hearings, they need to interview all of the people that are on this list,” Wine-Banks argued. “So it was premature and it is a cover-up to stop the investigation now.”

President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.

“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”

Rage-filled Trump has crippled his presidency because he can’t let go of a grudge no matter how small: report

Published

on

According to a report in Politico, many of Donald Trump's problems are the direct result of his inability to get over the smallest of slights leading him to make poor decisions because he can't see his way to let go of a grudge.

The report notes, "Whether in the privacy of his clubs or out on the campaign trail, the president can’t help but hold onto a grudge. Even as Trump heads into an election year with a record that he claims ranks him among the best presidents of all time, political grievances continue to drive everything from policy decisions to rally speeches to some of the biggest scandals of his presidency — including his impeachment."
