The Noose Tightens As Eric Swalwell Believes Trump Committed A High Crime

In response to Michael Cohen’s testimony, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said he believes that Trump committed a high crime or a misdemeanor.

Swalwell was asked by Katy Tur if he has seen evidence that Trump has committed a high crime or a misdemeanor.

He answered, “Yes, but evidence is not a conclusion, but it is a reason to keep looking and testing other accounts. Katy, I’m going to focus on I don’t care much about the payoffs to the women. The president was in contact with Roger Stone. We saw in our information that all of the evidence points in that direction and it would have been unnatural if he didn’t share his conversations with Wikileaks, and that matches what we learned throughout our investigation. They were so close they talked so often that it would have been unnatural not to read into it. We’re seeing more color filled in.”


Rep. Swalwell brought up a great point. The evidence isn’t a conclusion. The evidence is what leads investigators to conclusions. The evidence itself is not a conclusion. There is an investigative process that must be followed. Investigators can’t skip steps and move to impeachment without building their case. Many Americans wanted Donald Trump impeached yesterday, but impeachment is a slow process by design.

Michael Cohen’s testimony is evidence that Trump committed an impeachable offense, but an investigation must be completed until the nation moves to the increasingly inevitable impeachment of Donald Trump.
