Adam Schiff issues Mueller report subpoena

White House tells former counsel McGahn not to comply with subpoena

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the House isn't rushing into a vote on holding Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for not providing special counsel Robert Mueller's full report on his Russian Federation investigation.

McGahn's decision not to comply with the subpoena could push Nadler to hold McGahn in contempt of Congress, just as he's moving to do with Attorney General William Barr after the Justice Department defied a subpoena for the unredacted Mueller report and underlying evidence.

"We follow the facts", she continued.

Democrats, who have the majority in the House, made their case that Congress was at a historic juncture as it confronts what they consider Mr Trump's stonewalling of lawmakers' ability to conduct oversight of the administration. But we'll see. We will first seek to enforce our subpoenas in court to get the information necessary for the American people.

"The president is nearly self-impeaching", she said. Cipollone did not invoke executive privilege in a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., but strongly signaled the option is on the table.

Pelosi added that the Trump administration is showcasing obstruction of justice each day that it ignores subpoenas and declares that people should not testify in Congress. "So we believe it would be impossible for the government to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the president understood that he was instructing McGahn to say something false, because it wasn't necessarily false". But the White House argues that any request for these records must go through the White House and not to McGahn. He said, "This can not be". A meeting between the Justice Department and committee staff is expected Tuesday. But Pelosi said she is not rushing toward a vote.

SHAPIRO: OK. What can you tell us today about the White House's instructions for the man who used to be the White House's top lawyer? The Judiciary Committee is also negotiating with the Justice Department over obtaining a full, unredacted version of Mueller's report.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, whose committee had previously requested the documents, said he had no choice but to compel the department's compliance.

Liverpool can score without Salah insists Lovren
However, the scrap for Champions League places behind them is effectively settled after the chasing pack dropped more points. The two clubs could go into their final games of the season knowing the title will be decided on that day.

Cipollone says McGahn does not have any "legal right" to the documents because they're under White House control. That's likely what the White House is banking on.

President Donald Trump seemed to hedge a bit on his months-long chant of "no obstruction, no collusion", saying that the redacted Mueller report revealed "essentially no obstruction" during a bill signing Thursday.

The White House has rejected all efforts to probe Mr Trump's business dealings or tax returns as well as the West Wing's security clearance procedure.

In a letter Wednesday to Trump, Barr explained that the special counsel's files contain millions of pages of classified and unclassified information.

Senator Chuck Schumer of Unique York, the Democratic leader, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a joint assertion, blasted the speech as a "magnificent act of political cynicism and a brazen violation of the oath we all clutch".

Attorney General William Barr testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, May 1, 2019. "The White House is nevertheless seeking to accommodate Democrats' unwieldy demands".

If passed, the bill would allow the NY commissioner of taxation and finance to provide an individual's state tax returns to the chairmen of Congress's tax committees provided they serve a legitimate legislative objective, and as long as Congress has also requested the individual's federal tax returns from the Treasury Department. This vote comes after Barr's contentious appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, and his skipping of scheduled testimony for the House Judiciary the next day.

State senators in NY passed two bills Wednesday aimed directly at President Donald Trump - one that could allow his state tax returns to be released to Congress and another to allow state prosecutors to charge people whom the President pardons with state crimes.
