The real excitement came after the media decided it was all chaos and  chattered that Dems had accomplished nothing. Then  counsel Barry Berke got 30 minutes to question Lewandowski and made the most of it. Berke underscored a finding of the Mueller report that Trump instructed Lewandowski to talk to Sessions to curtail the Russia investigation. This is one of the clearest instances of obstruction, one that Mueller found met all the elements of the crime of obstruction. In short, Berke made perfectly clear that Lewandowski’s actions (refusing to deliver Trump’s instructions, demanding immunity, lying on TV, creating no record) demonstrated he knew he was being asked to do something wrong or illegal.'

"Berke reminded us that if competent counsel does the questioning, we can vividly see the impeachable acts that Trump already committed and continues to this day to commit. We learned, although it's been in the report and played out every day, that the impeachable acts are rather easy to understand. Former federal prosecutor Joyce White Vance was more succinct. "The law won," she said.

"It's also obvious why Trump is pulling out all the stops to prevent the testimony of former White House counsel Donald McGahn, who is witness to much more damning evidence documented in the Mueller report. Even without McGahn, there already are two simple, easy-to-understand grounds for impeachment:

"Article I: Trump used a private intermediary to instruct Sessions to stop investigating Trump and Trump's campaign.

"Article II: Trump repeatedly instructed witnesses not to cooperate with Congress's investigation of potential impeachable acts without any legal basis."
