One day after it was revealed that President Trump tried to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the White House Counsel Don McGahn intervened, the Trump-Russia treason investigation is expanding. Since Trump’s obstruction of justice campaign is far more aggressive and criminal in nature than we thought, those who witnessed or helped in that obstruction effort are being targeted. Among them is Stephen Miller.
When Trump first decided to fire FBI Director James Comey, he and Miller wrote a letter justifying the firing. McGahn then decided that letter was basically a confession to obstruction of justice, and got rid of it. Trump then fired Comey regardless, relying on a different letter that was written by the Department of Justice. Weeks later, Trump told McGahn to find a way to fire Mueller, but McGahn wouldn’t do it, and threatened to resign.
Trump’s firing of Comey, quickly followed by his attempted firing of Mueller, is a pattern of obstruction of justice, one of the stronger legal indicators for proving intent. Mueller has already known for months that Trump had tried to fire him, but Congress didn’t know that until it hit the newswires yesterday. Now Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee is fighting back.
Senator Feinstein is sending letters to Don McGahn, Sean Spicer, and Stephen Miller, demanding they provide documents and testimony about the above events, says a new CNN report. It’s not clear specifically why Spicer is being targeted. But we know McGahn is a witness to Donald Trump’s obstruction of justice, and that Stephen Miller is one of Trump’s co-conspirators.
