1. He's bring up destruction of evidence.

Joe's adding to that, pointing out the Mueller Report backs this up.

4. Yes! Destruction of Presidential papers

Strictly against the Presidential Act!

Anyone remember the 2 men whose sole job was to piece the papers together that Trump tore up?

11. The criminal has been destroying evidence for decades

Donald Trump’s Companies Destroyed Emails in Defiance of Court Orders
By Kurt Eichenwald On 10/31/16 at 7:00 AM EDT

Over the course of decades, Donald Trump’s companies have systematically destroyed or hidden thousands of emails, digital records and paper documents demanded in official proceedings, often in defiance of court orders. These tactics—exposed by a Newsweek review of thousands of pages of court filings, judicial orders and affidavits from an array of court cases—have enraged judges, prosecutors, opposing lawyers and the many ordinary citizens entangled in litigation with Trump. In each instance, Trump and entities he controlled also erected numerous hurdles that made lawsuits drag on for years, forcing courtroom opponents to spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled—sometimes in vain—to obtain records.

This behavior is of particular import given Trump’s frequent condemnations of Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent, for having deleted more than 30,000 emails from a server she used during her time as secretary of state. While Clinton and her lawyers have said all of those emails were personal, Trump has suggested repeatedly on the campaign trail that they were government documents Clinton was trying to hide and that destroying them constituted a crime. The allegation—which the FBI concluded was not supported by any evidence—is a crowd-pleaser at Trump rallies, often greeted by supporters chanting, “Lock her up!”

Trump’s use of deception and untruthful affidavits, as well as the hiding or improper destruction of documents, dates back to at least 1973, when the Republican nominee, his father and their real estate company battled the federal government over civil charges that they refused to rent apartments to African-Americans. The Trump strategy was simple: deny, impede and delay, while destroying documents the court had ordered them to hand over.

3. Cummings: "at the very beginning Trump said, 'I have no dealings w/ Russia".

Cummings continued, "Gimme a break" I could feel Cumming's level of disgust through my t.v. screen.

9. So am I

And am thrilled we have Democrats like Cummings, Nadler, Pelosi, Schiff, Swalwell, waters plus other fighters on our side!

I really do not understand the infighting among those who support one, only one candidate!

I am willing to sit back, watch events unfold and may the best man win.

I keep getting sucked in on these inter-fights so am trying to just avoid them. My guy is better than yours does not work at this time. I am keeping my powder dry for Republicans!

6. Cummings said the Republican minority tried to block the Oversight

Committee's demand for documentation from a government agency. The Republicans wrote a letter to the agency telling them not to comply.

10. That was the Agency

That prepared Trump tax returns. They said they are waiting for a friendly subpoena to make it legal, then would comply!

Trump can threaten all he wants.
