House to vote on taking its subpoenas to court

House to vote on taking its subpoenas to court

President Donald Trump lashed out at former Nixon White House counsel John Dean III, calling him a "sleazebag" ahead of his planned appearance at a House hearing Monday on the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller.

The House Intelligence Committee will continue looking into the Mueller probe on Wednesday with a hearing on the counterintelligence implications of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Mr. McGahn appears frequently in the Mueller report, including one episode in which Mr. Trump pressured him to fire the special counsel for alleged "conflicts of interest".

House Democrats are seeking more information on whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice during Mueller's investigation.

This theme was repeated by the Democratic former United States attorneys who testified.

"I can catch your testimony on TV!"

"Mueller has provided this committee with a road map", said Dean, who was part of a panel of witnesses.

He added: "Here we are again with priorities in this committee turned upside down".

McGahn is in "a particularly Fvulnerable situation" as a private person no longer employed by the government, Jeffries said. Seven of the committee's 41 members were born after his testimony.

Raskin described the variety of investigations the House has undertaken, including in search of Trump's taxes, information about his business practices, his decision to overrule staff objections in the issuance of security clearances, information about the 2020 census and more. "I don't leave. Big difference". "I used to tell people that if you ever talk to a lawyer who says, 'I'm going to win at court on this and I'll win the appeal, ' you run from them because they're either incompetent or corrupt, but you have such incredible ability, you know you could win at court on appeal, so I'm in admiration".

"I am pleased to announce that the Department of Justice has agreed to begin complying with our committee's subpoena by opening Robert Mueller's most important files to us, providing us with key evidence that the Special Counsel used to assess whether the President and others obstructed justice or were engaged in other misconduct", Nadler said. A redacted version was released by Barr in April.

The former White House counsel refused to testify before the House Judiciary Committee at the request of the Trump administration.

In tweets yesterday that he retweeted today, Trump claimed that Democrats were "devastated" by Mueller's findings.

"This committee is now hearing from the '70s and they want their star witness back". They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. "Sorry, no Do Overs - Go back to work!" He was joined at the witness table by three former USA attorneys, two Democrats appointed by Obama and one right-wing Republican.

In 1973, Dean testified before the Senate Watergate Committee against Nixon, and went on to serve four months in prison for his role in the Watergate scandal.

"We simply can not tolerate a posture from the president of the United States. of noncooperation - of absolute, comprehensive, wholesale defiance of the will of a Congress trying to seek information", said Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md.

That means the Trump administration can't drop everything and accede to partisan fishing expeditions, Republicans say.

"He's called me nasty names before", Dean said.
