Robert DeNiro, Martin Sheen, Stephen King make a case against Trump by breaking down Mueller report in new video: 'No one is above the law'
The five-and-a-half minute long video starts with DeNiro saying, 'In 2016 the Russian government attacked our democracy' following which Sheen says that Russia 'interfered in the presidential election in a sweeping and systematic fashion'
A host of respected Hollywood celebrities have come together to make a video about the Mueller Report, in an attempt to get Americans to look closely at the findings of former FBI Robert Mueller against President Donald Trump. The Mueller Report, the video says, contains damning evidence against Trump and points that he colluded with the Russians, multiple times in order to influence the presidential campaign in 2016.
They said that they felt the need to make the video because "virtually no one has read it". Stars including Robert De Niro, Rosie Perez, Martin Sheen, Sophia Bush, Stephen King, Laurence Fishburne, George Takei, Jonathan Van Ness, and Rob Reiner broke down the report in a video made for NowThis, published on Thursday, June 20. The five-and-a-half minute long video starts with DeNiro saying, "In 2016 the Russian government attacked our democracy" following which Sheen says that Russia "interfered in the presidential election in a sweeping and systematic fashion."
The stars cite evidence from the report, including information to Trump about how the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, his competitor. The video also talks about incidents that are the "textbook" definition of collusion, including the meeting that Donald Jr and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner had with Putin-related lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower as well as the meet at a cigar bar in New York between Paul Manafort, his campaign manager, and a Russian agent.
The video says that "it was clear that Russia was helping Trump" and he, in turn, helping them. The video also said that Trump's campaign had 200 contacts with Russian operatives but he never reported it. As for Trump's frequent quote of "no collusion, no obstruction, no nothing" during the campaign, actor Kendrick Sampson called it an "outright lie".
The stars urged citizens to read the report so that Trump could be held accountable for the things he had done. "No one, not even the president of the United States is above the law."
As for Robert Mueller, he had declined to accuse Donald Trump of committing a crime but at the same time did not completely exonerate him either.
