Donald Trump, Richard Burr, Trump Tower Moscow discussed on All In with Chris Hayes

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

He would be held in contempt and that contempt citation needs we voted on by the committee, but the full Senate. And so my Republican colleagues are now going to be tested, the Republican chairman Richard Burr is doing his job because there's no case closed on Russian attack on our democracy. We need to know the. Fat. I'm going to make this argument that want to hear your response. And the argument goes like this the motor report is out redacted. But the the bulk of it and the findings are in the first volume about collusion are what they are. Why does it matter? Why chase down Don jR, for what he said to the committee when the facts are already established an out in the Miller report, the facts, in fact, may not be fully established by the mills mellow report. There are a lot of open questions that remain to be answered as Mark Warner just implied. And the Muller report raises many of them. In fact, we sent a letter members of the judiciary committee on the democratic side to the powers that be asking for Muller to appear because we have about sixty questions about not only obstruction, but also Russian collusion and remember the attack on our democracy continues, and those facts and need to be no. On. I'm curious what you make of the internal caucus dynamics among your colleagues across the aisle. Obviously a lot of Republican senators very mad at Richard Burr.

He didn't have contact with Constantine Kalinic as far as we know. Right. You were saying that about Paul Manafort Paul Manafort had the contact. Okay. Donald trump. She's in her may have known about it. I said final question you did have them before your committee judiciary committee. And I think I've asked you this before but given now that you've had time to look through the whole report. Do you think he lied to you when you had them before your own committee? There are very very serious about his credibility as factual accuracy. Which is why I have said from the outset that he should be called back before committing to explain why he gave seemingly inaccurate and misleading answers on for example. Whether he knew about those Trump Tower Moscow negotiations he said that that he had only peripheral awareness. Well, the Michael Kohn testimony indicates exactly the opposite..
