President Barack Obama’s former acting Solicitor General explained the impeachment inquiry as President Donald Trump cheating in the 2020 election campaign.
Neal Katyal was interviewed by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on “Deadline: White House” on Friday. Katyal is the author of the new book Impeach: The Case Against Donald Trump.
“Neal, one of the things that’s so stark and the three of us watched every minute of the testimony, but even if you just caught the highlights on the local news, it’s clear that everybody knew something was wrong,” Wallace said. “John Bolton, the National Security Adviser, called it a drug deal and described Rudy Giuliani as someone who was going to explode on everybody.”
“Officials sent their deputies to the White House Counsel’s Office. What is the knowledge of criminality and the knowledge of wrongdoing from the highest levels of the White House, the president, say to you?” Wallace asked.
“It says this looks like almost an organized crime enterprise in which everyone around the boss knows exactly what’s going on, and the boss knows what’s going on as well, and is hoping that his aides don’t flip on them,” Katyal replied.
“The central allegation here is the president cheated in the 2020 election by going and trying to seek help from a foreign government,” he explained.

Days after reports surfaced about the global consulting firm McKinsey's work advising the Trump administration on immigration policy, calls are growing louder for South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to disclose details about the work he did for the company.
Biden won’t voluntarily testify in Trump’s impeachment trial. Here’s what that means
"No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball," Biden told reporters at a campaign event in Iowa Falls on Wednesday afternoon. "The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that. I’m not going to let anyone divert from that."
People who want to ban fracking immediately, says Joe Biden, ‘oughta vote for someone else’
"Might I recommend Bernie Sanders: the climate candidate," responds Vermont senator's press secretary.
If you want a candidate committed to banning fracking in the United States immediately, find another candidate than Joe Biden.
That's the advice of Biden himself, given to an activist from the Sunrise Movement in a video posted online Thursday after the two discussed the former vice president's adviser Heather Zichal and Biden's plans for the future of fracking.
