US House Dems move closer to holding Trump officials in contempt

US House Dems move closer to holding Trump officials in contempt

"Since the release of Robert Mueller's report, White House stonewalling of congressional subpoenas and Mr. Mueller's first public comments, nearly 60 House Democrats, a quarter of the caucus, have said they support an impeachment inquiry", writes the New York Times. "Then we edited them - by removing and adding passages - to match the president's conduct as described in the Mueller report and elsewhere", adds the author.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller makes a statement about the Russian Federation investigation at the Justice Department in Washington on May 29, 2019.

Nadler reportedly pushed Pelosi to let his committee start an impeachment inquiry, but Pelosi still opposes that idea. Barr also defied a subpoena at the direction of the White House last month that sought documents and testimony related to the Mueller investigation.

"Let's just say that I'm confident he'll come in soon", House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) told NBC when asked about the latest status of Mueller's possible testimony.

The spokesperson did not directly address whether Pelosi made the remark about Trump that was attributed to her. "She's a disaster", Trump said, according to excerpts released by Fox News. "Nancy Pelosi is a disaster, ok?" During a brief interview near the cemetery where almost 10,000 American war dead are buried, she said she rather not criticize Trump while she is out of the country, according to a tweet by a CNN correspondent.

However, calls of impeachment continue to mount - including from nearly every Democratic presidential candidate - despite the fact that Mueller found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and that Mueller could not conclude that Trump had obstructed justice.

Mueller also said at the press conference that he didn't want to speak about the report in public again, including testifying before Congress.

At a Wednesday night town hall in Fort Wayne, Indiana, that was broadcast on MSNBC, Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA said she came to believe that impeachment proceedings were necessary after reading "all 448 pages" of Mueller's report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump has repeatedly called the Mueller investigation a "witch-hunt" and since its conclusion has called on politicians to "move on".

Nadler thinks impeachment is not supported by the people because they don't know the facts. "And we'll make that happen".

Barr had testified in a Senate hearing that Mueller had assured his team 'that he emphatically was not saying that but for the [rule] he would have found obstruction'.

"At that moment, we weren't about party", McCarthy said. "I hope we take that back to Washington, not wanting to put somebody in jail but putting Americans first".
