US House to vote on measure making it easier to enforce subpoenas

Nadler strikes deal with Justice Department to receive ‘key’ Mueller evidence on possible Trump obstruction

Nadler: DOJ, Dems strike deal over Mueller report evidence

After hours of testimony before the House Judiciary Committee and a few jabs from President Trump via Twitter, the former White House counsel to President Richard Nixon told CNN Monday evening that he was "honored" by Trump's insults.

A growing number of Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment in light of special counsel Robert Mueller refusing to exonerate the president of obstruction of justice.

Democrats acknowledged the unprecedented nature of the resolution. "But neither have we ever seen blanket stonewalling by the administration of all information requests by the House", House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said on the floor of the House. We've had some court victories, it is making its way up.

At the White House, Trump dismissed Dean and any notion of impeachment.

"He's made it clear that he's very committed to getting Mr. McGahn before the committee as quickly as possible", Representative David Cicilline, a Democrat on Nadler's panel, told reporters on Capitol Hill. The measure is scheduled for floor action on Tuesday. Half a dozen House panels are looking into Trump's presidency and personal holdings.

The unemployment rate is the lowest since 1969 and so far inflation data shows that consumers haven't felt pressure from rising prices.

The resolution passed on Tuesday was co-sponsored by the chairmen or women of the House's committees on oversight, foreign affairs, judiciary, Ways and Means, intelligence, and financial services.

Other panels are probing his financial records and documents on policies ranging from immigrant family separation to the transfer of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia.

"Like Comey, Cox was charged with investigating wrongdoing by the President and his advisors and Cox refused an ultimatum from the White House", he said. "This begs the question: what are (they) covering up?"

Previously, the Department and committee Democrats had been locked in a standoff over the committee's subpoena for the full, unredacted Mueller report and all its underlying evidence.

"It is hard not to view the goal of this resolution and this debate as anything but political", Republican Representative Debbie Lesko said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday that she won't comment on whether she wants to see President Donald Trump "in prison" as she was reported to have said last week behind closed doors, but she did say that she is "done with" spending time talking about the president and his recent criticism of her during his overseas trip to France.

The pushback comes after Nadler on Monday announced the deal with the Justice Department for documents and evidence related to Mueller's inquiry on whether the president obstructed justice - an agreement that prompted him to hit pause on efforts to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt, though his House colleagues are still pursuing contempt against Barr on two separate fronts this week. A redacted version was released by Barr in April. He added that all members of the committee will be able to view the materials.

Even in the unlikely event that the Democrats impeached Trump in the House and the Republican-controlled Senate convicted and removed him from office, the result would be his replacement by the equally right-wing vice president, Mike Pence.

"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?"
