House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler held a press conference Friday afternoon vowing to continue his pseudo impeachment inquiry into the Trump administration through the August recess.
Just asked Nadler if what they’re doing now is the same thing as an impeachment inquiry, and he said: “In effect.” And then he said the distinction is that impeachment inquiry is just about impeachment. His probe is a bit broader but could lead to recommendation of impeachment— Manu Raju (@mkraju) July 26, 2019
"We are continuing an investigation of the president's malfeasances," Nadler said. "He [Mueller] told us that Donald Trump obstructed justice."
"We will continue to seek testimony from key fact witnesses," he continued. "The Committee has authorized several additional subpoenas. Our work will continue into the August recess and we will use those subpoenas, if we must."

Nadler is lying about what Mueller said regarding obstruction. Mueller did not say Trump obstructed justice. In fact, he said the opposite.
