Donald Trump is in massively deep sh*t, and he’s taking the rest of the Republican Party with him, according to a new podcast posted by Yahoo! News. Let’s just say that most of the country probably won’t be shocked to hear that news at all.
In the podcast, Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) called out the House GOP for not doing a damn thing to assist Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe as he looked into Russia’s meddling in the presidential election and Trump’s campaign. According to Whitehouse, Republicans made every effort to work against Mueller and make his job harder. Whitehouse said:
Whether it amounts to criminal conduct, clearly the efforts of the House Republicans were designed to impede and throw sticks into the spokes of the Mueller investigation.
To discredit it, foul it up, to provide alternative narratives, potentially even to communicate to potential witnesses or jurors their alternative narratives and thereby influence the proceedings … all of that.”
Whitehouse warned Republicans that they were just “one bad email away” from being guilty of obstruction of justice. He said:
The only thing that stops that being a crime is the contact with Trump’s lawyers and the corrupt intent. The other elements are all there. You can show in abundance that they tried to interfere with the Mueller investigation.
Whether they did that with the requisite corrupt intent … We’re one bad email away. It definitely needs to be investigated.”

Republicans have done everything in their power to protect Trump and turn the other way as he ruins the country. It’s about time they were held responsible for his crimes as well.
