House Democrats Strike Deal With DOJ for Mueller Report Details

John Dean to testify — again — about possible presidential obstruction of justice

Because of the conversations with the department, Nadler announced in a statement Monday, "I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now".

Former White House counsel and Watergate star witness John Dean says he'll be providing a House panel "some context" and comparison between investigations during President Richard Nixon's administration and that of President Donald Trump.

And they will lay the groundwork for an appearance from Mueller himself, despite his stated desire to avoid testifying.

She said Mueller could testify before the committee soon, according to Nadler, though Mueller said recently he would not expand on what is in his investigative report. All members of the Judiciary Committee-Democrats and Republicans alike-will be able to view them.

The session with Dean begins a series of hearings in which House Democrats are attempting to keep the spotlight on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.

Mega Millions results for 06/07/19; 1 victor sold for $530M jackpot
The $530 million top prize is the 7th biggest in the 17-year history of Mega Millions and the 15th largest in USA lottery history. The odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 302 million. "We had a great victor of the Powerball jackpot on Saturday".

California Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the goal of the Wednesday hearing will be to explain to the American people "the serious counterintelligence concerns raised by the Mueller report, examine the depth and breadth of the unethical and unpatriotic conduct it describes, and produce prescriptive remedies to ensure that this never happens again".

The House Judiciary Committee also voted on May 8 to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for not giving the committee special counsel Robert Mueller's full, unredacted report.

He defended Democrats for drawing parallels to history while they build a case for impeachment in the court of public opinion rather than hearing from White House officials.

For their part, Democrats have agreed to put on hold a pending vote by the full House to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for his refusal to answer a subpoena for these and other materials. It concluded there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Nadler noted that Tuesday's vote included language authorizing court action against McGahn, in addition to Barr. We know that. I think he was disbarred and he went to prison.

On Thursday, Curran, 50, told ESPN.com reporter Ramona Shelburne in tears that she "disabled her IG account just to make it stop". The Beyhives are notorious for swarming on anyone who they think may have offended Beyonce or cause her any form of trouble.

In tweets Sunday night that he retweeted early Monday, Trump claimed that Democrats were "devastated" by Mueller's findings.

The report also outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to interfere with Mueller's investigation but declined to make a judgment on whether that amounted to obstruction of justice.

Republicans are poised to defend the president at the hearings and challenge Democrats on the decision not to open impeachment hearings.

"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?" Mueller said charging the president with a crime was "not an option" because of federal rules.
