Wasserman Schultz: We Won’t Let Trump Treat the Constitution ‘Like One of His Shady Real Estate Contracts’

Friday on MSNBC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) declared Congress would not allow President Donald Trump to treat the Constitution like a “shady” real estate contract.

Wasserman Schultz said, “We’re not going to allow an authoritarian president like Donald Trump the authority to treat the Constitution like one of his shady real estate contracts that he can just ignore or tear up. And so holding him accountable and making sure that we use all the tools available to us as a coequal branch of government is exactly what we are doing.”

She added, “Now I think what President Trump and his cronies have continued to do, including the attorney general who holds his skirts every day, William Barr, is essentially obstruct justice by trying to deny us access to information and testimony that we rightfully and constitutionally should have access to and we’re going to continue to press for that.”
