Graham Now Says Mueller Should Testify - But On One Specific Topic

See Kamala Harris stump William Barr during hearing

Special counsel Robert Mueller walks past the White House, after attending St. John's Episcopal Church for morning services, in Washington, on March 24, 2019.

Democrats accused the Republican President and his administration of a launching a growing attack on American democracy.

"He lied to Congress".

Pelosi said that "if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime".

"Nobody is above the law".

"I think he should resign".

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called Ms Pelosi's allegation "reckless, irresponsible and false". That could potentially lead to fines or imprisonment for the top United States law-enforcement official.

Mueller contended that Barr did more harm than good by not releasing more information and created "public confusion about critical aspects" of the investigation results.

Republicans in Congress have also dismissed Nadler's efforts as political theater meant to satisfy a progressive voter base that helped give Democrats control of the House of Representatives in last year's midterm election. He said Trump had a "sincere belief" that the investigation was undermining his presidency. Mr Nixon resigned in 1974.

Congressmember Nadler made the threat after William Barr refused to appear before his committee on Thursday. Barr said Wednesday his goal had been simply to release the report's bottom-line conclusions as he readied the entire document for release.

In terms of the underlying materials, Nadler said the committee wants to see witness interviews and "items such as contemporaneous notes" that are cited in the report. Mr Barr cancelled his testimony after clashing with Mr Nadler over the hearing's format. "And he seems like he is moving and has moved toward a less independent role", Jones said.

"The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States", she told reporters.

Nadler also asked that the DOJ "seek a court order permitting disclosure of" grand jury material, a request that Barr has explicitly told Congress he had no intention on complying with.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he will decide in the coming days whether he will allow former White House lawyer Don McGahn to testify before U.S. lawmakers or whether he will invoke executive privilege to block his testimony.

The new offer from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler comes after the Justice Department missed the committee's earlier deadline for the information.

"They want it to look like an impeachment hearing because they won't bring impeachment proceedings", Mr Collins said.

Even before Mueller's probe ended, federal prosecutors in NY had implicated President Trump in ordering his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to violate federal campaign finance laws. It also describes actions Trump took to try to impede Mueller's investigation.

Flood says Mueller's comments that the president could not be exonerated on obstruction of justice "do not belong in our criminal justice vocabulary", and says Mueller and his staff "failed in their duty to act as prosecutors and only as prosecutors".

Schiff published a scathing op-ed in USA Today Friday directly accusing Barr of "misleading the country" after he declined to indict President Trump of obstructing justice.
