CNN Desperately Clings to Their Claims That Trump Obstructed Justice

‘They don’t need it to be beyond a reasonable doubt, to start impeachment proceedings against the President for obstruction of justice’

EXCERPT:

BASH: “When we were reading as we first got this, the quotes from Barr, the way he distilled the idea of obstruction, saying that Mueller couldn't find beyond a reasonable doubt evidence of the President's intent to obstruct, what he's laying out there is a -- what he needs to have to prove a criminal charge. And we've been saying this for, you know, months now, but this is really, really important now because we're at that point. There is a very big difference between trying to get enough evidence for a criminal charge, president or not, and making a political determination on Capitol Hill whether or not the House Democrats feel they will get enough information and they will get enough evidence, which they don't need it to be beyond a reasonable doubt, to start impeachment proceedings against the President for obstruction of justice. They have two different very different standards. Very different standards.”
