Chris Cuomo Declares Trump Is Guilty

We don't have all the facts yet, but CNN's Chris Cuomo has already issued a guilty verdict for President Trump in regards to the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. 

"We are living a very big moment right now," Cuomo said Thursday morning on CNN. "How will lawmakers respond to the president's clear intent to influence this Russia investigation, even after the appointment of a special counsel?"

Critics charge Trump with firing former FBI Director James Comey because the FBI's Russia investigation was getting too close for comfort. However, several committees have analyzed possible collusion between Trump associates and Russia, but have nothing to show for it.

Yet, Cuomo has heard enough to convict the president.

A jury of Democrats in Congress have come to the same conclusion, especially after The New York Times reported on a Comey memo in which he revealed Trump asked him to stop the Michael Flynn investigation. Trump's interference in that probe, according to representatives like Al Green (D-TX), amounted to obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been appointed special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation. The president is confident that this probe, too, will result in his innocence.
