    Mark Warner Speech on Mueller Investigation: Live Video | Heavy.com


    Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, is delivering a speech “on the Senate floor about the future of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.” You can watch Warner’s speech live above.

    Warner, of Virginia, is the vice chairman of the Intel committee, which is conducting its own investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

    “I rise today concerned about the threats to the special counsel’s critical investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election,” Warner said in his speech, referencing calls from allies of President Trump for Robert Mueller to end his probe. “Over the last several weeks a growing chorus of irresponsible and reckless voices have called for President Trump to shut down Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.

    Warner said:

    At first, these calls came from the fringes of our political discourse, those who would refuse to put our country and our security before base political instincts. Earlier this year, many of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle were right to push back on these misdirected calls and urge that the special counsel be allowed to do his job without interference. However, in recent weeks those voices seem to be growing in stridency and in volume. Just this weekend, one major news organization suggested the special counsel Mueller could be involved in a coup against the president. One senior adviser at the White House has now outrageously alleged that the fix was in against Donald Trump from the beginning. Those statements are reckless, they are inappropriate and they are extremely worrying. They are at odds with the president’s own lawyers who have pledged to cooperate with the special counsel.

    Warner added that the “seemingly coordinated nature” of the claims, “should alarm us all.” He said the “baseless” claims have recently been repeated by GOP members of the House.


    Warner called on “every member of this institution, Republican

    Polls are not with Trump on this one, the percentage of those who want him impeached outweighs the number of those who want him re-elected.


    Support for Donald Trump?s Impeachment Is Higher than His Re-election Chances

    This poll also shows Trumps approval rating rising up to 41%, a nice increase from October.

    Woot. Woot. Trump's on a roll.

    Still the worst approval rating by any President in his first year in modern times. That's just plain shitty, isn't it?

    It was a great speech by Warner. Rained on Trump's Tax Bill Picnic too. I'm glad Democrats took a strong stance today.
