The federal indictment of several Russians announced Friday proves President Donald Trump was involved in a "criminal conspiracy," said Maryland Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings.
Cummings released a statement through the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of which he is the ranking Democrat.
"For all of those who have been asking, 'Where is the evidence of a crime?' — this is it. This is the criminal conspiracy," Cummings said. "This is what President Trump and his allies have repeatedly called a 'hoax' and 'fake news.' This is what they tried to cover up. This is what we might never have known if President Trump had been successful in shutting down this investigation."
