House panel asks court for Mueller grand jury material

House panel asks court for Mueller grand jury material

Trump is a master at saying one thing that means another, and he regularly accuses others of doing things he himself does.

"In an interview on NBC News' "Meet The Press", Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee", said any impeachment by the House would be nullified by the GOP-led Senate.

Nadler praised Mueller's testimony during an appearance today on This Week With George Stephanopoulos after being asked if it was a mistake to have him under oath. It's maybe the most African American district in the country - my people just tell me, "Stay on it, stay on it".

Mueller investigated Trump over alleged collusion with the Russians in the 2016 presidential election. How did the special counsel's dubious reliance on it as a rationale for abdicating on this question affect the publication and ramifications of the Mueller report?

A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment but Trump did not hesitate to crow about "the greatest display of ineptitude [and] incompetence that the Halls of Congress have ever seen".

Mueller submitted his report in March and it was published in redacted form in April, after attorney general William Barr issued a summary of its contents which Democrats said was misleading. He also claimed any other statements he made on the investigation would be within the constraints of what was included in the report.

Mueller stated both on paper and in person on Capitol Hill that he did not exonerate the president on questions of obstruction of justice.

The committee wants his testimony to help them detail what Mueller uncovered in his obstruction investigation, but McGahn ignored their subpoena and did not appear at a May hearing under direction from the White House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was however was opposed to impeachment proceedings.

Nadler said Friday that Mueller's testimony showed clearly that Trump "obstructed justice and abused his office".

When asked if the House would pass a resolution condemning the president's tweets, Nadler said "I don't know, it wouldn't be a bad idea". But that's beside the point: The guidance is binding on Justice Department lawyers, period. The special counsel also stressed that he was not saying he would have indicted Trump but for the opinion's existence.

When Nadler asked the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director on Wednesday if the report did not conclude that Trump had not committed obstruction of justice, Mueller said, "That is correct".

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) holds a news conference to discuss the Committee's oversight agenda following the Mueller Hearing in Washington D.C., July 26, 2019. Now that's a "purview" in the tradition of the Democrat party, and that's a purview that I can believe, because that is exactly how the two-year national embarrassment was conducted, whether Mueller is alert enough to be aware of it or not. And I think violating the separation of powers would be such a misdemeanor.
