Dem Rep: Evidence Shows 'President Broke the Law'

(ABC's "This Week")

By    |   Sunday, 10 November 2019 11:40 AM

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., on Sunday declared the House impeachment inquiry has so far found "a very strong case of bribery" against President Donald Trump in his dealings with Ukraine.

In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Speier said the evidence is far clearer than it was in the report of former special counsel Robert Mueller, which contained "a lot of legalese" and did not "galvanize public opinion" about Russian 2016 election interference.

"This is a very simple straightforward act: The president broke the law," Speier said of Trump's alleged soliciting of foreign interference in the 2020 election.

"He went on a telephone call with the president of Ukraine and said 'I have a favor though' . . . and proceeded to ask for an investigation of his rival and this this is a very strong case of bribery," she said.

"You have an elected official demanding action of a foreign country — in this case providing something of valuem which is the investigation — and he's withholding aid, which is that official act. The Constitution is very clear . . . treason, bribery or acts of omission. In this case, it's clearly one of those."
