US House to Vote on Mueller Probe Lawsuits After Deal For Documents

Rep. Jerry Nadler speaks to members of the press

The House Judiciary Committee voted in May to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena to provide the full unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller. Subsequently, just like they do on MSNBC, Joyce Vance and Barbara McQuade did an excellent job outlining Trump's obstruction and highlighting Mueller's findings.

"Given our conversations with the Department, I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now".

Trump invited reporters outside to hear remarks from Indy 500 victor Roger Pagenaud on Monday afternoon after a storm let up, creating the conditions for a last-minute photo op.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., holds a news conference on June 5. But he said that in any event Trump could not have been charged because a Justice Department policy prohibits filing criminal charges against sitting presidents.

"They're picking their lawyers from TV now", she said of the House Democrats, adding that Dean had spoken out against Trump's nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. It was not clear whether the planned vote on McGahn would go ahead.

The Justice Department did not have an immediate comment.

"If the Department proceeds in good faith and we are able to obtain everything that we need, then there will be no need to take further steps", Nadler warns the department.

Kim Jong nam, half-brother of North Korean leader, was a Central Intelligence Agency informant
The U.S. and South Korea, too have blamed North Korea, but Malaysian officials never officially accused Pyongyang of involvement. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. "I don't know if the reports are correct", Trump said.

A court case could come more quickly for McGahn, who has defied subpoenas for documents and testimony at the behest of the White House. "We have agreed to allow the Department time to demonstrate compliance with this agreement", Nadler's statement continues.

She said that even on the question of rebuilding USA infrastructure, which Trump had often said he wanted to do, "when it came to pay for it, he diverted attention to personal matters".

Dean laughed, and said "I did, actually". "He should begin to co-operate immediately or face the consequences".

On Twitter, President Trump suggested that Democrats are using Dean as a prop to "do over" the results of the Mueller report. In his only remarks since taking charge of the inquiry, Mueller said last month his team had no authorization to take action against Trump on the issue.

Before Dean spoke to the House Judiciary Committee, Trump took the opportunity on Twitter to slam the former White House counsel under President Richard Nixon as a "sleazebag attorney". Dean pointed to the way the presidents used their pardon power in an attempt to influence witness testimony, and their efforts to seize control of the investigation and direct the efforts of prosecutors. At the time, Dean testified before Congress about White House corruption that led to Nixon's resignation as he was about to be impeached. There's no obstruction, there's no collusion, there's no anything'.

"Special Counsel Mueller has provided this committee with a roadmap".

"Those are things that would never get processed in that committee today", Dean said.
