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

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

But the House would still vote on a resolution on Tuesday that would empower the committee to file a civil lawsuit for the materials, if Democrats chose to do so. Watch live in the player above.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted on Tuesday that Attorney General William Barr's decision to turn over additional evidence from former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation poses a "potential nightmare" for President Donald Trump.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the chairman of the committee, said the Justice Department will provide some of Mueller's "most important files" and all members of the committee will be able to view them.

Let's remember, in response to the Committee's requests, the Department has provided 14,000 pages of documents, I have voluntarily testified before the Committee for almost seven hours, and we have agreed to make three Department witnesses available for interviews in the next two weeks, including one scheduled for tomorrow.

In a letter sent to Nadler last week, however, the Department of Justice said that it was willing to resume negotiations with House Democrats, but only if the contempt proceedings against the attorney general are halted and reversed. The vote will put the full House on record approving the lawsuits, if leaders and committees decide they want to move forward with them.

Some Democrats are pushing for impeachment proceedings linked to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether the president obstructed justice.

The House tomorrow, however, will vote to authorise the panel to take Barr to civil court to enforce a subpoena for the underlying documents should the documents prove insufficient to investigations.

That followed an accord announced Monday with the Justice Department that permitted Nadler's staff members to gain access to material they'd sought from the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and said Mueller's report on the matter exonerated him.

"In many ways the Mueller report is to President Trump what the so-called Watergate road map was to President Nixon", Mr. Dean told the panel.

"Attorney General Barr and Secretary Ross are complicit in this cover-up", Mr. Cummings said, insisting, "I did not want this to happen".

"We're going to hear from special counsel Mueller, we're going to hear from these other witnesses", he added.

Raju also asked Pelosi if she does believe the President may have committed crimes, doesn't she have an obligation to pursue an impeachment inquiry?

Rep. Jim Jordan, also fed up with Democrats' futile hearings and witnesses, caught Dean in a web of lies and called him out for advising Lanny Davis, Michael Cohen's lawyer, to obstruct Cohen's testimony before the House Oversight Committee. "We must go to court to enforce the subpoenas".

During a meeting with Nadler and other committee heads last week, Pelosi made the case that she would rather see Trump voted out of office and "in prison" than merely impeached, according to a report in Politico.

Former White House counsel John Dean laughed off attacks he faced from House Republicans during a hearing today, saying he expected the attacks and noted "they're all flamethrowers".
