Fox News legal expert bails on Trump

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

“Unlawful, defenseless and condemnable.”

Prepare for the Twitter temper tantrum. Judge Andrew Napolitano, a legal expert from Trump’s beloved Fox News, explained exactly how he believes Mueller’s redacted report implicates Trump in obstruction of justice—and why Attorney General Barr was wrong to exonerate him.

Trump is clearly scared of what’s in Mueller’s report. Now, he’s refusing to cooperate with House investigations and blocking former White House Counsel Don McGahn from responding to a subpoena to testify. Why? What is Trump afraid of?

Share this article on Facebook and Twitter to make it clear: Mueller’s report shows Trump obstructed justice—and now he’s trying to cover up his lies again by obstructing investigations into his corruption.

Trump is obviously panicked by the prospect of McGahn testifying. Here are a few reasons why:

  • McGahn was one of Mueller’s key witnesses, providing unique insight into Trump and his behavior during the Special Counsel Investigation.
  • McGahn is mentioned in the Mueller report 529 times, often in reference to explicit attempts by Trump to obstruct the Russia investigation—including his repeated attempts to fire Mueller.
  • The New York Times reported that Trump has said the “only way to protect himself from impeachment is to attack Mr. Mueller and Mr. McGahn.”

Thinking CAP: The [Redacted] Mueller Report

It’s only been a week since Mueller’s redacted report became public. If it feels like it’s been a month—and if the report left you with more questions than you had before—you’re not alone.

That’s why the Thinking CAP team brought in Max Bergmann, CAP senior fellow and director of CAP Action’s Moscow Project, to walk us through the report. Bergmann explains how the report outlines extensive collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and serves as an impeachment referral to Congress. Listen to the episode here.
