President Donald Trump has shown himself to be "unhinged" and "completely at odds with reality," for his tweets about special counsel Robert Mueller, according to Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn.
The Justice Department raided the office and hotel room of Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Although the raid was likely prompted by information uncovered during Mueller's investigation, it does not appear to be related to the special counsel's probe.
"Let's start with the facts . . . Of course the facts are that the investigation has secured two guilty pleas, and close to two dozen indictments. To say that this is a witch hunt, to say that they've found nothing, is to be completely unhinged, to be completely at odds with reality," Himes told CNN's "New Day" on Tuesday.
"It's an uncomfortable thing because I see nothing in this Congress, and there's political reasons for this being true, I see nothing in this Congress to suggest that if the president fires the deputy attorney general, fires Bob Mueller in order to stop this investigation . . . that this Congress would act," he continued.
"So, that takes us to a world where, you know, as Lincoln said, 'public sentiment is everything,'" Himes said. "So, the way public sentiment would play out there, what the public would do, what the public would demand their elected officials do is, I think, where this gets a little interesting."
