House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler Subpoenas Mueller Report

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler Subpoenas Mueller Report

Mueller did not render a judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice despite probing a host of possible examples.

Moreover, while the report did not find any criminality between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, it could not reach a concrete legal conclusion on whether the President had tried to obstruct justice. This is bad. This is the end of my Presidency.

Democrats meanwhile have demanded action against Barr, arguing that Mueller's report undercut some of the attorney general's key claims about the obstruction issue and the White House's cooperation with the investigation. McGahn refused - deciding he would sooner resign than trigger a potential crisis akin to the Saturday Night Massacre of firings during the Watergate era.

If there was one thing the Mueller report was guaranteed to deliver no matter its contents, it was an onslaught of mocking memes. After reading the Mueller report, Romney stated he was "sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President". The message was never delivered.

Barr's spin on the report in his previous four-page summary and press conference Thursday morning has proven to be misleading at best, and completely false at its worst. "Priebus said he told the President he would only direct McFarland to write such a letter if she were comfortable with it".

The release represented a moment of closure almost two years in the making but also the starting bell for a new round of partisan warfare. "Don't tweet at me, because I'll put you in jail".

Top Republicans in Congress saw vindication, too.

There are ample reasons in the report for Congress to commence impeachment proceedings against Trump and to convict him in an impeachment trial. Three days later, Trump called White House counsel Donald McGahn twice, telling him both times to get Mueller removed.

Nadler said that the members of his committee need to see the full report to make "informed decisions", including whether or not to try and impeach President Donald Trump. Nadler summoned Mueller to testify and the chairman said Thursday he will be issuing subpoenas for the full report.




Overall, about 40% of the pages contained at least something that was blocked out, mostly to protect ongoing investigations. That included covering information pertaining to grand jury evidence.

"A normal person would have been indicted for this", a Republican close to the White House told reporter Sherman. I could have fired everyone, including Mueller, if I wanted.

"These facts are fatal to the conspiracy theorists who have drowned U.S. discourse for nearly three years with a unsafe and distracting fixation on a fictitious espionage thriller involved unhinged claims of sexual and financial blackmail, nefarious infiltration of the U.S. Government by familiar foreign villains, and election cheating that empowered an illegitimate President".

In short, Barr's March 24 letter left the impression that Mueller punted on obstruction because the questions were simply too hard and so the boss needed to step in and make the tough call. There are numerous instances in which Mueller's team caught Trump aides or allies lying to the public about aspects of the investigation.

McClatchy attached an editor's note to its story reporting Mueller's conclusion but adding that his report "is silent on whether the investigators received evidence that Mr. Cohen's phone pinged in an area near Prague, as McClatchy reported". The perfidies Mueller uncovered go on and on and will consume Washington for months.

Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said he wants everything by May 1.

Nadler also has made clear that he believes Congress must keep its own counsel on the major questions facing the country about Trump's conduct.

Whether that's enough to sway Trump's supporters remains unknown. "Ultimately, the investigation did not establish that the campaign co-ordinated or conspired with the Russian government in its election interference activities". "Lawyers don't take notes", Trump once told McGahn, according to the report. He also said he had no recollection of knowledge about emails setting up the meeting that promised dirt on Clinton's Democratic campaign.
