  • House panel demands secret Mueller grand jury material from court

The Democrats will be eager to move on from this embarrassing episode, but Republicans shouldn't be so quick to let Mueller and his team of rabidly anti-Trump operatives off the hook. Nearly 100 House Democrats have called for impeachment proceedings to begin. President Donald Trump tried to impede Mueller's investigation at various points as he tried to hide the campaign's contacts with Russians from the public.

Democrats, in turn, spent their time trying to force Mueller to dramatize the op-ed section of his report on potential obstruction of justice.

In the end, he seriously undermined the central case for impeachment of President Donald Trump. Trump has said he will fight "all of the subpoenas".

But Mueller made one correction to his testimony, and it had nothing to do with whether Trump could be charged once he's out of the White House.

"From my personal point of view, we are in an impeachment investigation", Raskin said. "We are in the political arena", Pelosi scoffed, according to Fox News, saying that the meeting had gone "very well". And the House Intelligence Committee is still going forward with its inquiry into Trump's associations with overseas' businesses. Why? First, there are Trump's business dealings with Trump Soho and the push to have a Trump Moscow hotel.

"The Committee seeks key documentary evidence and intends to conduct hearings with Mr. McGahn and other critical witnesses to determine whether the Committee should recommend articles of impeachment or any other Article I remedies, and if so, in what form", the lawsuit says.

It is unclear what new information might be found in the grand jury transcripts.

But even now, with Democrats deflated by "disaster", they're not admitting defeat. She said the pair discussed issues facing their districts in California and NY, along with the challenges facing the nation on issues of immigration. A viral meme shared by a page called the Trump Resistance Movement, for example, cites a limited portion of the Mueller-Lieu exchange to also suggest that the OLC decision is the only thing that stood in the way of Trump's prosecution.

However Pelosi isn't there, not but. Her response to a question from CBS' Nancy Cordes about the meeting at Pelosi's daily presser didn't exactly suggest that this was the beginning of a handsome friendship.

Of the three other rocks, Asteroid 2019 OD was the largest, believed to be between 170 feet and 393 feet across. Earth almost had a devastating collision with an asteroid travelling at almost 15 miles a second today.

Pelosi attempted to dispel talk of divisions and personal feuds before heading into the weeks-long August recess on Friday.

Mueller grew more assertive in the afternoon, however, when he repeatedly warned the House Intelligence Committee about the dangers to democracy posed by Russia's election meddling and efforts by other foreign players to interfere in American election contests.

Home Democrats have handed laws to safe state election methods and attempt to stop worldwide meddling, however bipartisan laws within the Senate has stalled.

Democrats may initiate impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives, but the trial ultimately occurs in the Senate, where the Republicans have a 53-47 majority.

The Justice Division isn't carried out with its personal investigations into what occurred earlier than the 2016 election.

Both Democrats and Republicans were optimistic ahead of the hearing that Mueller's answers would either animate the findings of a sprawling investigation or prove he was biased against Trump. They're eagerly anticipating the outcomes of these probes.

Republicans say that nothing must be subsequent, at the very least with regards to investigations of the president. They've strongly defended Trump, who has known as Mueller's probe a hoax, and have mentioned the nation needs to maneuver on.

Mueller's day of testimony was in its seventh hour when he was finally asked the question that should have been most important: How do we stop this from happening again?
