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

Published

on

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.”

Writing at Just Security, Goodman and Potcovaru examine past statements made by Giuliani both on cable news shows and on social media, and have discovered that Giuliani's efforts to get Ukraine to probe the 2016 election are also an effort to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

However, the Trump Organization run by Eric Trump and his older brother Donald Trump Jr. sent out a tweet Monday morning promoting the Trump Towers in Pune, India.
