On Friday afternoon, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York formally accused Donald Trump of having instructed Michael Cohen to commit multiple felonies, for the purpose of altering the outcome of the 2016 election, and labeled the president “Individual-1.” Now the top House Democrats on the relevant committees are dropping the hammer on Trump.
In response to the news that he’s now an accused felon, Trump fired off this tweet: “Totally clears the President. Thank you!”
Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who is about to become the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, quickly fired back: “Who’s going to tell Individual 1?”
Rep. Ted Lieu, who sits on the crucial House Judiciary Committee, piled on: “Dear Donald Trump: I think you might not know that the person prosecutors identify as Individual-1, who committed multiple felonies, is you. You may want to read the court filings today.”
Meanwhile, Robert Mueller and the SDNY are closing in on Trump from every angle, publicly exposing his crimes by the day, and he’s sitting around tweeting increasingly absurd nonsense.
