Hillary Clinton says that prosecutors would have accused President Trump of crimes if he was not in power.
That does not mean that Democrats must hurry to remove him from his position, she said. Clinton told lawmakers on Tuesday that they must work hard to hold hearings and review the facts before attempting to remove him from his position.
& # 39; I have a strange personal history about deposition, & # 39; she acknowledged. & # 39; It should not be a predetermined conclusion. It must be based on evidence, not on bias. & # 39;
House republicans voted to accuse Clinton & # 39; s husband of his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, but he was left in place by a vote from the senate. That would be the likely result if House Democrats were to vote, she noted.

Clinton said she agrees with landlord Nancy Pelosi that you are not putting any accusation on the table as the only item on the table and saying that you will get there no matter what happens. unless you have the evidence to support it. up.
The former first lady said she believes Mueller would have sued Trump if he thought he could have it, based on the guidelines.
& # 39; I think there is enough that another person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been charged, & # 39; she said. & # 39; But because of the rule at the Department of Justice that you are not suing a sitting president, the entire case of the obstruction was sent directly to the congress. & # 39;
Pelosi told the members of her caucus to chomping on the bit to accuse during a Monday call that they needed to slow down. She said that for partisan reasons, the Democrats don't seem to like Trump.
She repeated her statements about the private call in public on Tuesday during the Time 100 event in New York, where she was interviewed after Clinton.
& # 39; I really believe that deposition is one of the most divisive forces, paths that we can go to in our country, & # 39; she said. & # 39; But if the facts, the path, the fact finding bring us there, we have no choice. But we are not there yet. & # 39;
The Californian democrat said: & # 39; It may be a place that the facts bring us. We must not impose a political reason, and we must not refuse for political reasons. & # 39;
President Trump said in a tweet on Monday that he cannot be accused because he has not committed any crimes.
& # 39; Only high crimes and misconduct can lead to deposition. There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can't blame him, & he said. & # 39; It was the Democrats who committed the crimes, not your Republican president! Tables finally turn on the witch hunt! & # 39;
The Mueller report devoted an entire section to allegations that Trump was hindering justice. The first part was about Russian election efforts and allegations that Trump and his campaign might have been involved.
Clinton encouraged attendees to read all 448 pages of the Mueller report themselves.
& # 39; Every American who cares about holding our opponents accountable, looking for what ever happened, should take the time to continue, & # 39; she said.
Clinton noted in the conversation that her campaign was negatively influenced by interference, including the release of emails from her campaign leaders.
& # 39; I really believe that the Mueller report is part of the beginning. It's not the end, & she said.
She called the speech & # 39; The end of the beginning & # 39; Churchill and said: & # 39; Because there is so much more that we should know and respond to. & # 39;
Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal lawyer, tore Clinton in a tweet.
& # 39; Hillary is right, the report is the end of the beginning for the second time & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; NO COLLUSION. Ukraine is now investigating the Hillary campaign and DNC conspiracy with foreign agents, including Ukrainians and others, to influence the 2016 elections. And there is no Comey to fix the result. & # 39;
Giuliani's tweet refers to an interview with Hill.TV in which Ukrainian Attorney General Yurii Lutsenko confirmed, according to the outlet, that the police had a tape recording of a Ukrainian official who said he had negative information about Paul Manafort leaked to help Clinton's presidential campaign.
The information about the alleged financial crimes led the special council to interrogate and sue Trump's former campaign president. He was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for the crimes he committed before joining Trump.
