Mueller Report Pulls Back Curtain on Russian Contacts with Connecticut's Paul Manafort, Hope Hicks

Stan Twardy was quoted in an article, "Mueller Report Pulls Back Curtain on Russian Contacts with Connecticut's Paul Manafort, Hope Hicks, " published by the Hartford Courant. The article discusses special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and focuses on the involvement of Connecticut's Paul Manafort and Hope Hicks.

 "Basically, it says there was a symbiotic relationship between the Trump campaign and the Russians, " said Twardy, a former U.S. attorney for Connecticut, after reading of key passages of the report. He also noted that Barr is in an impossible position in dealing with the parties in Congress. "I think he's a man of great integrity, " Twardy said. "He was damned if he did, damned if he didn't. "

Twardy said Mueller's report gives Congress a "road map " to potentially initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors, which he said is a different standard than for bringing criminal charges. He also emphasized that Mueller referred 14 criminal cases to prosecutors, only two of which are public. "What else is out there? " Twardy said. "There are a lot of people that won't be sleeping well tonight. "
