Don McGahn, ex-White House counsel, subpoenaed over Mueller report

The Democratic chairman of the House judiciary committee has issued a subpoena demanding that former White House counsel Don McGahn testify before Congress as House speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed to hold Donald Trump to account following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report on Russian influence on the 2016 US election. Giuliani rails against Mueller report as Democrats mull Trump impeachment Read more The move escalates the Democrats’ investigations into Trump, as the party remains split over moves towards impeachment, and debates how to proceed with the evidence contained in Mueller’s 448-page report, which laid out 10 episodes of potential obstruction of justice and abuse of power by the president. “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.” In a statement, Nadler said the committee asked for McGahn, who cooperated extensively in the special counsel investigation and was involved in several incidents at the heart of whether Trump obstructed justice, to turn over documents by 7 May and to testify before his committee by 21 May. Ahead of the call, Pelosi acknowledged the divide within her caucus over whether to pursue impeachment – a step supported by many on the party’s left flank, including 2020 contenders Elizabeth Warren and Julián Castro. “While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth,” Pelosi said in a letter to her colleagues. She vowed that Democrats would “scrupulously assert Congress’s constitutional duty to honor our oath of office to support and defend the constitution and our democracy” by escalating its investigation into the president. This is the second subpoena issued by Nadler since the release of the report: on Friday he demanded that the justice department turn over an unredacted version of the report as well as the underlying evidence by 1 May, when the attorney general, William Barr, is due to testify before Congress. “Instead of looking at material that Attorney General Barr has already made available, Democrats prefer to demand more documents they know are subject to constitutional and common-law privileges and can’t be produced,” he said. Trump has maintained that the report represents a “total exoneration” and has insisted repeatedly that there are no grounds for impeachment. “Obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable.” Democrats believe Mueller’s report offered them a “roadmap” to further investigate Trump for obstruction of justice.

Trump and impeachment: where Democrats stand after Mueller

Because it matters not just for this president, but for all future presidents. Despite deciding not to run, he has continued to pursue impeachment. He continues to push on. “Let me assure you that whatever the issue and challenge we face, the Congress of the United States will honor its oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States to protect our democracy,” she told reporters this week. “We believe that the first article – Article I, the legislative branch – has the responsibility of oversight of our democracy, and we will exercise that.” The avenue is not impeachment. “The avenue is not impeachment,” he said this week. The New York representative, who has subpoenaed the unredacted report, has discussed impeachment repeatedly as it would originate with his committee. “The idea is not whether to debate articles of impeachment,” Nadler said. Kamala Harris: “I think that there is definitely a conversation to be had on that subject,” the California senator and presidential hopeful told MSNBC on Thursday, “but first I want to hear from Bob Mueller and really understand what exactly is the evidence that supports the summary that we have been given today.” Cory Booker: Speaking in Nevada on Friday, the New Jersey senator, who is also a member of the judiciary committee and a 2020 hopeful, said it was too soon to discuss impeachment because Congress has not seen the unredacted report and has not had a chance to interview Mueller. April 18, 2019 Beto O’Rourke: The 2020 contender and former Texas representative said he believed voters cared more about policy discussions than impeachment, telling reporters on Thursday: “I don’t know that impeachment and those proceedings in the House and potential trial in the Senate is going to answer those questions for people.” The full text of Robert Mueller's report on Trump and Russia Read more Elijah Cummings: The House oversight committee chairman told MSNBC on Friday the Mueller report revealed actions that were “at least 100 times worse” than those that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998.
