Ted Lieu (D-CA), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, sent out a tweet that does not bode well for Trump.

Lieu’s tweet comes in response to a slew of bombshell developments this week regarding the FBI’s Russia investigation.
First, The Washington Post reported that Trump revealed classified information to the Russians in a meeting in the Oval Office to which only Russian press had access. The New York Times then reported that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to close the investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn. Afterwards, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian meddling in the election. Then, the New York Times reported that Flynn did indeed tell the Trump transition team before his inauguration that he was under federal investigation, and was hired anyway. Finally, it was revealed that Trump told the Russians that firing Comey relieved “great pressure” on him with regard to the Russia probe.
As the case against Trump grows stronger by the day, Americans are grateful for representatives like Ted Lieu, who – unlike the White House – seem fully capable of putting the interests of the United States before those of their imperiled, traitorous leader.
