House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is kicking off a series of Mueller-related hearings on Capitol Hill Monday with an appearance from Dean.

"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.

This story is breaking and will be updated.

Continued Nadler: "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". The Justice Department responded it would also be willing to negotiate on the committee's document request so long as the House called off its contempt vote against Barr.

Nadler issued a subpoena for the full report shortly after Barr released the report in April.

It's not at all clear how this deal fits into the big picture of the struggle between House Democrats and the Trump administration.

For weeks Barr has resisted a subpoena from Nadler's committee for a full, unredacted version of Mueller's 448-page final report and underlying evidence.

While the Judiciary Committee still sees the resolution as part of the civil contempt process to enforce subpoenas through the courts, the Justice Department only considers it an effort to enforce subpoenas, and not contempt, according to a Justice Department official.

In addition to not bringing an obstruction charge, Mueller was unable to find evidence to establish that Trump colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election.

"In light of today's agreement from the Justice Department, it's logical to ask: Is the chairman prepared to rescind his baseless recommendation to hold the attorney general in contempt, or do House Democrats still plan to green light lawsuits against the attorney general and former White House counsel tomorrow?"

Since the space shuttle program ended in 2011, NASA has flown astronauts to the space station aboard Russian rockets. This is a pretty big change for NASA , which has traditionally been against commercializing the station.

The documents subject to the deal relate to a series of instances Special Counsel Mueller investigated and included his report - including testimony about Trump to remove Mueller, fire the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and send signals to the attorney general.

"Sorry, no Do Overs - Go back to work!" He told CNN he'll tell the House Judiciary Committee on Monday "how strikingly like Watergate what we're seeing now, as reported in the Mueller report, is".

The contempt vote is reportedly still scheduled for Tuesday, despite the agreement, Politico reported.

The Mueller report plainly stated that the special counsel found evidence of presidential-level obstruction: Trump tried on multiple occasions and through multiple aides to hinder, limit and even end the probe.

"The Mueller Report was a disaster for them", Trump wrote.
