U.S. Justice Department to turn over Mueller report evidence

The vote, along with two hearings this week on the Mueller report, is partly created to mollify anxious Democrats who have tried to pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings immediately. Pelosi, D-Calif., prefers to continue the investigations and see where they lead.

The president said he'll stick out the proceedings, if Democrats go that route. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been pushing back on calls for impeachment, but today it became even clearer that it's the best method to expose President Trump's unprecedented corruption.

Approval of the resolution is all but certain as Democrats control the House 235-198, but it is unclear what Nadler will do after the vote. Nadler opened the hearing by citing Mueller as an authority on the supposed massive intervention of the Russian government in the 2016 election in favor of Trump-an unsubstantiated narrative that was fabricated by the USA intelligence agencies and has been the focus of the Democrats' demands for a more aggressive posture toward Russia as well as a harsher crackdown on oppositional views on the internet.

In response to the agreement, Nadler said the panel would not vote to hold the attorney general, William Barr, in criminal contempt, for now.

"That is very, very serious, and we need to get to the bottom of it and we need to know who participated in that from Russian Federation, from the United States or from both", Hoyer said. However, he has indicated that pursuing court enforcement or other steps may still be necessary.

McGahn refused to testify last month or hand over documents requested by the House, in defiance of the subpoena. But he said McGahn is another matter.

Murray, Aykroyd, and Weaver to Reprise Roles for New Ghostbusters
The Ghostbusters 3 movie scheduled to hit theaters in 2020 will include Sigourney Weaver in her original role as Dana Barrett . Reitman will be co-writing the script with Gil Kenan ( Monster House , Poltergeist ), who is no stranger to ghost stories.

But a strong majority of voters said the probe and report by Mueller's team were credible - 61 percent said the investigation was conducted fairly and without bias. "He should begin to co-operate immediately or face the consequences".

He said he saw parallels between Mueller's findings regarding Trump and those of congressional investigators looking into Nixon's administration decades ago.

Nadler's committee, for example, could file one asking a judge to reject the assertion by the Trump administration that former White House counsel Don McGahn can't testify before Congress or surrender documents. He likened the Mueller report to the "Watergate road map" that brought down Nixon. In fact, Dean, a convicted felon, has repeatedly charged that past Republican presidencies, including Reagan, Bush, and now Trump, are "worse than Watergate". Dean pointed to the way the presidents used their pardon power in an attempt to influence witness testimony, and their efforts to seize control of the investigation and direct the efforts of prosecutors. He added his oft-repeated claim of "No Collusion - No Obstruction!"

"Special Counsel Mueller has provided this committee with a roadmap".

But many Republicans have criticised the hearings, saying now that the Mueller report is out, it is time to move on.
