Democrats to press star witness of Mueller report to repeat performance in Congress

Democrats to press star witness of Mueller report to repeat performance in CongressSince the April 18 release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and any ties to Republican Trump’s campaign, Democrats have seen McGahn as someone who could be as important as Mueller himself, according to a source familiar with the matter. The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that the White House planned to oppose a subpoena by the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee for McGahn to testify. Mueller’s 448-page partially blacked out report portrayed McGahn as one of the few figures in Trump’s orbit to challenge him when he tried to shut down the investigation that has clouded his more than two years in the White House.

Hillary Clinton: Mueller report is beginning, not the end

Hillary Clinton: Mueller report is beginning, not the endSpecial counsel Robert Mueller’s report is only the beginning of a reckoning on election meddling, not the end, and “raises some serious questions,” Hillary Clinton said Tuesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate stopped short of calling for immediate impeachment proceedings, however, and said Congress should instead conduct a serious analysis of whether President Donald Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors. If elected officials believe that he did, “then I think it is the obligation of Congress to put forward the articles of impeachment,” Clinton said at an appearance in New York City for the Time 100 Summit, where she called for the full, unredacted report to be released.

Democrats subpoena ex-White House counsel Don McGahn in wake of Mueller report findings

Democrats subpoena ex-White House counsel Don McGahn in wake of Mueller report findingsThe chairman of the House judiciary committee has subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to force him to publicly testify next month, in the latest fallout following the release of the Mueller report.Representative Jerry Nadler, described Mr McGahn as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the special counsel’s report”.Several other top allies to Donald Trump are expected to be subpoenaed to testify before Congress in addition to Mr McGahn, who stepped down from his post in October.“The special counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Mr Nadler said.He continued: “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.”Mr Nadler’s subpoena requests that Mr McGahn appear before the committee on 21 May, with a deadline of 7 May to provide documents to the judiciary committee related to Mr Mueller’s investigation.The subpoena comes as Democrats have wrestled with the fallout of the Mueller report, and whether they should pursue impeachment against the president in light of the multiple concerning details in the report.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is among those in the Democratic caucus who have urged patience in the process, and on Monday wrote to fellow Democrats, suggesting they allow investigations in Congress to establish a factual basis for impeachment before they begin talking on the subject.Mr McGahn’s “testimony will help shed further light on the President’s attacks on the rule of law, and his attempts to cover up those actions by lying to the American people and requesting others do the same”, Mr Nadler said.
