Democrats push new strategy for enforcing Russian Federation subpoenas

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler D-NY Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee speaks during a news conference in New York Wednesday

The House Judiciary Committee voted in May to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena to provide the full unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Before Dean spoke to the House Judiciary Committee, Trump took the opportunity on Twitter to slam the former White House counsel under President Richard Nixon as a "sleazebag attorney".

Implicitly urging the House Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said: "In many ways the Mueller report is to President Trump what the so-called Watergate road map... was to President Richard Nixon".

In a rare compromise on Monday, Nadler said he would hold off on suing Barr for now after the Department of Justice agreed to hand over some key underlying evidence from Mueller's report. Democrats just want a do-over which they'll never get!' he asserted.

NY voters are divided on what to do with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report, a new survey released Tuesday reveals.

On a separate issue, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform is set to vote Wednesday to determine whether to hold Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for defying congressional subpoenas regarding a citizenship question in the 2020 census.

Mr. Clyburn recently walked back comments in which he appeared to say he believed impeachment proceedings would begin in the House at some point.

"I'm clearly not a fact witness, but I hope I can give them some context and show them how strikingly like Watergate what we're seeing now.is", Dean said.

'Look, John Dean's been a loser for many years, so I've been watching him on one of the networks that is not exactly Trump oriented. Last week, the Speaker said that Trump's threatened tariffs on Mexico were both bad policy and a distraction from the Mueller report.

"If the Department proceeds in good faith and we are able to obtain everything that we need, then there will be no need to take further steps", Nadler warns the department. Trump's former White House counsel Donald McGahn, in fact, has refused to testify because the White House told him not to.

Mueller said he couldn't reach a conclusion on whether there was obstruction and also said he found "insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy" on election interference.

"They're picking their lawyers from TV now", she said of the House Democrats, adding that Dean had spoken out against Trump's nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Dean, a CNN contributor, is a vocal critic of Trump and has called for his impeachment.

Collins said to the witnesses before pivoting to Dean specifically: "This committee is hearing from the 70s and they want their star witness back".

Dean told the House panel that Mueller has provided a "roadmap" for investigating Trump, adding that he sees parallels between the circumstances surrounding Trump and those surrounding Nixon in the 1970s.
