Dems rev up impeachment threats after report Trump told Cohen to lie on Russia project

Congressional Democrats have seized on an overnight report claiming President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow, threatening renewed investigations and even suggesting the allegations could form the basis for impeachment proceedings.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who would be at the center of any future impeachment push but so far has taken a reserved approach toward that possibility, fired a warning shot on the heels of the report on Friday morning.

“We know that the President has engaged in a long pattern of obstruction. Directing a subordinate to lie to Congress is a federal crime,” Nadler tweeted. “The @HouseJudiciary Committee’s job is to get to the bottom of it, and we will do that work.”

Nadler’s warning came after Buzzfeed reported that Trump instructed his former attorney Cohen to lie to Congress in his August 2017 deposition before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees about the now-abandoned real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Russia.
