Russia: House committee to see Mueller evidence

With it, members of Congress could authorize House lawyers to file lawsuits in order to ask a judge to compel Barr and McGahn to hand over the material Nadler sought.

It's unclear how quickly Democrats will act once the resolution is approved.

John Dean, former White House counsel to Nixon, was brought in to testify not as a "fact witness", as he hastily acknowledged at the outset, but to give a "historical perspective" on the Mueller report in a Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday.

Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, sent Nadler a letter Friday calling the upcoming hearing a "mock impeachment hearing" and warning Democrats to be civil when speaking of the president.

Nadler said in response to the agreement Democrats would not vote on holding Attorney General William Barr in criminal contempt, for now.

Nadler noted in the statement that he expects ongoing cooperation from the DOJ to hold off further contempt proceedings against Barr.

The Justice Department said it was pleased the House committee had "agreed to set aside its contempt resolution and is returning to the traditional accommodation process".

Mr Mueller's investigation is part of a broad fight between Mr Trump and congressional Democrats, who are investigating his policies, conduct in office and private businesses. "If important information is held back, then we will have no choice but to enforce our subpoenaing court and consider other remedies".

Throughout the hearing, House Republicans continued their sycophantic defenses of President Trump and showcased their lack of knowledge when it comes to Mueller's report.

The Democratic-controlled House will vote as previously planned on Tuesday on a measure that would increase pressure on Mr Trump by authorising the committee to sue the administration in federal court if needed over access to the report.

This puts House Democrats one step closer to finding out if President Donald Trump obstructed justice during the two-year investigation by Robert Mueller III into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russians. Trump is accused of attempting to obstruct justice, including by trying to have former special counsel Robert Mueller removed from his post during the 22-month-long probe. "Nixon waded in and tried to influence the FBI investigation, as did Trump". McGahn is the key player in a few central episodes described in Volume II of Mueller's report, including a request by Trump that McGahn remove Mueller and then later, a request by Trump that McGahn falsify evidence denying the earlier request took place.

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". Trump has made that assertion repeatedly, echoing Barr's judgment that there was not enough evidence in the report to support a criminal obstruction charge.

The sudden turn of events came ahead of a pivotal week for House Democrats, who are torn over whether to move forward with impeachment proceedings and searching for ways to focus public attention on Trump's actions. While Nadler opened the hearing by asking the committee to "draw our own conclusions about the findings of the special counsel", it was clear from Dean's testimony which conclusions they were supposed to draw.
