Rep. Steve Cohen: About 40 lawmakers now support Trump impeachment

"I think one of the ironies today is that people are saying that it's President Trump that's shredding our institutions", Barr said.

"This is why we need all backup and source documentation for the #muellerdossier [to be] released publicly", he posted.

Democrats in Congress believed Mueller had suggested during the press conference that Congress should investigate the special counsel's findings. But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi knows nothing new was learned Wednesday that wasn't already in Mueller's report. He also said charging the President with a crime was not an option because of a long standing justice department policy that prohibits charging a president with criminal wrongdoing.

"There was no high crime and there was no misdemeanor", Trump said when asked about impeachment.

"With Democrats in the majority, we will legislate", Pelosi told the convention, as cries of "Impeach!" grew louder.

In a statement, CREDO Action co-director Heidi Hess said Pelosi can not continue to drag her feet as support for impeachment surges within her own party and at the grassroots. As more and more Democratic lawmakers - and presidential candidates - call for impeachment proceedings, Pelosi is urging restraint. Half the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee want an inquiry.

"The only person who knows better than I why this president is not above the law, why this president must be held accountable, the only person who knows better than I do is the president of the United States", she said. "But I love the department of justice".

Jurgen Klopp hails 'best night' of his life after ending final hex
Liverpool fans, some in tears, celebrated the Champions League win with a rendition of the club anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone". Liverpool clinched their first European trophy since 2005 thanks to Mohamed Salah 's early penalty and a late Divock Origi goal.

None of the Democrats running for president said anything about working on legislation to prevent Russian hackers from meddling in our elections again.

But this isn't entirely new for her.

Barr said he and a group analyzed "the law and the facts" Mueller gathered and found "as a matter of law, numerous instances would not amount to obstruction". Trump told reporters: "Russia did not help me get elected". He said, "Impeachment doesn't remove this president".

But because the language Mueller used this week was different from the language Attorney General William Barr used when he summarized the basic conclusions of the Mueller Report Barr in April, Mueller's statement gave a fresh jolt of energy and hope to the Deranged Democrats' dream of impeaching the president. Pres. Trump has blocked House committees' subpoenas and other efforts to dig into the Trump-Russia issue, insisting Mueller's report has settled everything.

"During the civil rights movement I'm sure the time probably wasn't right politically, but we did in our hearts what we knew was right", she said.

"We will go where the facts lead us", Pelosi told delegates who gathered to hear 14 presidential candidates make their case for taking back the White House.

"That's where that shredding of our norms and institutions are occurring", Barr said in an interview done during an official trip to Alaska to meet with the Native American community on tribal access to law enforcement.
