Investigator on Trump/Russia: “If you’d seen what I had seen you’d want me to go full throttle”


While the American public seems to be learning more and more as multiple investigations into President Trump and his campaign move forward, there is no doubt that members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees know much more than what we all do. After all, multiple key witnesses have already been interviewed in private, under oath, by both committees.

This week, however, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, let the cat out of the bag, making it clear that the information that investigators are still keeping under wraps seems quite damning to the administration.

“If you had seen what I had seen you’d want me to go full throttle,” Quigley told those on hand at a discussion he took part in at the DePaul University College of Law, while discussing the Trump investigation that is currently underway in the House.

Quigley then went on to convey a sense of urgency surrounding the investigations into Trump, as he feels that there is a very good chance that the President will soon fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“We live with the very real threat that the Mueller investigation gets shut down,” he warned. “One of the reasons I speak the way I do when I message about this is I’m worried about a constitutional crisis. I think there is a reason [Trump] speaks to the base in the manner in which he does. He’s prepping them, girding them for this.”

Over the last several months it does appear as if the President is trying to divide the country instead of bringing it together. He has been creating a deeper division between his base and those on the left, while also attacking some of the members of his own party who do not fall in line with his own rhetoric.

It will be interesting to see if Trump tries to figure out a way to fire Mueller should additional leaks point to an investigation which will end poorly for him. Apparently some investigators already feel that we are nearing such a constitutional crisis.
