Former US attorney testifies before Congress that evidence in Mueller's report sufficient to convict

45 of multiple counts of obstruction.

At a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Vance asserted that prosecutors “would have to be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt at trial” that the president obstructed justice by trying to subvert the Russia investigation.

Vance said that she had reviewed both volumes of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“The facts contained in that report would be sufficient to prove all of the elements necessary to charge multiple counts of obstruction of the evidence,” she explained. “And I would be willing to personally indict the case, and to try the case. I would have confidence that the evidence would be sufficient to obtain a guilty verdict, and to win on appeal.”

3. She also made clear that she was talking about how a prosecutor would approach this case if it

involved anyone other than a sitting president shielded by the OLC memo. She wasn't saying that she thinks Mueller should have indicted Trump or criticizing him for not doing so, but was talking about the seriousness of Trump's crimes.
