SCHIFF SHOCK: US Won't 'Survive Another Four Years' of Trump

Trump wants to shut down the Mueller report. "I think it looks from the report as though he's committed impeachable offenses".

"The bottom line is we spent $35 million investigating the president", said Paul.

"Impeachment is an extraordinary remedy, not to be entertained lightly, and in the case of a president, would mean putting the country through a deeply wrenching process."

"That's not going to happen and I don't think this country could survive another four years of a president like this who gets up every day trying to find new and inventive ways to divide us", Schiff told Stephanopoulos. "We must impeach. Let the Senate do what they may; we have to do what we must!"

Senior Democrats have increasingly taken a sharper tone against the administration. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, that McGahn's record remains legally protected from disclosure.

Republicans argued that Democrats' are pursuing investigations to politically embarrass the president, inquiries that will eventually culminate in an impeachment push.

The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform on Tuesday reissued a request made past year for copies of the nondisclosure agreements signed by White House staffers under President Donald Trump.

"We're are going have to use that device if necessary, we're going to have to use the power of the purse if necessary".

But Mueller's report concluded that there was substantial evidence the president had engaged in obstruction of justice when he pushed McGahn to help oust special counsel Robert Mueller III.

Mueller's team found no evidence of collusion, as outline in the report, but laid out 10 "episodes" that could potentially be instances of obstruction of justice by the president.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said Friday that Mueller would not testify this week, as the committee initially planned, but that the two parties are in talks.

House Democrats are sending a message that they view deep budget cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency as a non-starter, setting down another marker for future spending battles with the White House in the months ahead.

Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol that the contempt citation against Barr will come to the full House for a vote "when we're ready" and warned President Trump this may not be the end of his war with Congress.
