Former White House counsel John Dean describes parallels between Trump, Nixon

President Trump, at the White House, called Mr. Dean a "loser" and highlighted his relationship with CNN, a favorite target of the president.

House Democrats voted Tuesday to authorize lawsuits against President Donald Trump's administration should current and former officials refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas.

In tweets, Trump also took aim at House Democrats for continuing to focus on the report by Mueller that details findings of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election as well as possible episodes of obstruction of the probe by Trump.

Democrats acknowledged the unprecedented nature of the resolution. We've had some court victories, it is making its way up. In fact, Dean, a convicted felon, has repeatedly charged that past Republican presidencies, including Reagan, Bush, and now Trump, are "worse than Watergate".

As part of his effort to uncover more of Mueller's findings, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler announced that his panel will get some of the evidence related to Trump's attempts to interfere with Mueller's probe from the Justice Department.

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. The measure is scheduled for floor action on Tuesday.

Other panels are probing his financial records and documents on policies ranging from immigrant family separation to the transfer of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. He said the "good-faith provision" from the administration to turn over the documents "debunks" claims the White House is stalling Congress. "This begs the question: what are (they) covering up?"

The battle between House Democrats and the Justice Department began in late March, when special counsel Robert Mueller finished the investigation.

Collins also called Democrats' legal arguments weak and said they could wind up hurting their own cause if they don't find favor with judges in court.

Meanwhile, Sarfaraz vowed Pakistan will put their 5-0 whitewash by Australia in March behind them. "We're not thinking about that".

"It is hard not to view the objective of this resolution and this debate as anything but political", Republican Representative Debbie Lesko said.

"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.

For weeks Barr has resisted a subpoena from Nadler's committee for a full, unredacted version of Mueller's 448-page final report and underlying evidence.

The 448-page, redacted Mueller report was released on April 18.

New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a member of Democratic leadership and the Judiciary panel, said Tuesday that he expects they will not "race to the courthouse" if the Justice Department continues to co-operate.

President Donald Trump has pledged he won't pull a Richard Nixon and resign in the face of certain impeachment, saying he's not the type who backs down from a fight.

The Justice Department did not have an immediate comment.

"Today Chairman Nadler brings in front of the judiciary committee a guy to talk about obstruction of justice, a guy who went to prison in 1974 for obstructing justice", Jordan said.
