Watergate Prosecutor Calls Out GOP For Being ‘Part Of The Cover-Up’ After Ending Probe Early
Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks called out House Republicans during an interview on Tuesday after they prematurely ended the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes shared a picture of key people who were not interviewed by the Republican majority.
The list includes campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, Steven Miller, Sean Spicer, and former chief of staff Reince Priebus.
“What is your take away looking over this list of witnesses and the document the Democrats and House Intel put out,” Hayes asked Wine-Banks.
“My take away is the majority are part of the cover-up,” the former federal prosecutor concluded. “They don’t want the truth to come out.”
“They want to cut this off to please the president. They are not interested in the American people getting the full truth — which is what we deserve.”
“They need to have public hearings, they need to interview all of the people that are on this list,” Wine-Banks argued. “So it was premature and it is a cover-up to stop the investigation now.”
