Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn has claimed that President Donald Trump's 'obstruction' of the now-debunked Mueller investigation was too obvious not be included in the impeachment inquiry.

Clyburn said the obstruction of justice accusations are "too clear not to include" in any set of articles of impeachment, according to the State.

The Mueller investigation, which used over $25 million of taxpayer money, spent two years investigating whether Trump conspired with foreign entities.

The report did, however, state ten instances where Trump 'may' have obstructed justice.

Clyburn's statement reflects the Democrats' dilemma on the scope of any articles of impeachments they produce.

Many have called for the president's impeachment based on his actions with Mueller.

Still, one House Judiciary Committee member told McClatchy that it was "pretty clear" Mueller's findings won't be included.

“Oh lord, yes, things have changed a whole lot since these testimonies,” Clyburn added.

Last week, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) set a deadline for Trump to declare whether his attorneys will take part in upcoming impeachment hearings, which he says includes allegations of "Russia collusion."

Nadler reportedly issued the same December 6 deadline to President Trump’s attorneys and House Republicans to introduce new evidence or call further witnesses.

"The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee, which is due to begin weighing possible articles of impeachment against Trump next week, sent a two-page letter to the president setting a deadline of 5 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT) on Dec. 6 for the president’s counsel to specify intended actions under the committee’s impeachment procedures," Reuters reported late Friday.

Nadler says he would allow Republicans to participate in the hearings by issuing subpoenas, calling witnesses, and giving presentations.

According to the guidelines, Nadler must approve of any Republican subpoena requests.
