Schiff predicts Mueller will testify before Congress

They’re rallying around William Barr. Trump not so much

Democrats have confronted the Republican president and his administration for refusing to cooperate with at least six separate congressional investigations of Trump, his turbulent presidency, his family and his business interests. McGahn's view was not disclosed in the report.

The House Judiciary panel has set a May 21 hearing for testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn, a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Rudy Giuliani hinted Saturday that he believes there is a constitutional crisis, although it isn't the one that Democrats have been talking about since the release of the Mueller report.

The White House, Groves said, "will not and can not comply" with what he called "unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats".

As Trump's attorneys prepared for the public release of Mueller's report last month, the White House sought for McGahn to issue a statement making public what he told Mueller's team, according to people familiar with the discussions. "It was a request, professionally and cordially made". "This White House will not and can not comply with unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats".

Trump backed off that position Thursday, saying he'd leave the decision "up to our very great attorney general". Around the time McGahn declined the second request, the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani began publicly attacking his credibility.




Last week, President Donald Trump invoked blanket executive privilege over special counsel Robert Mueller's full report, preventing the House Judiciary Committee - which had previously subpoenaed the Justice Department for a full, underacted version of the report - from obtaining it. "There's no executive privilege over the hundreds of thousands of documents regarding events that took place before Donald Trump was president".

While giving an interview on ABC's "This Week," Paul - the junior senator from Kentucky who sits on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs - torched Schiff as a "hypocrite" for his criticism of Trump's use of "executive privilege" after he was "all for" Obama using it.

He told The Washington Post that McGahn should have left the White House if he thought Trump had engaged in a crime.

Trump spoke in the White House to lend his support to efforts by Republican and Democratic lawmakers. McGahn prepared to resign at one point rather than carry out Trump's instructions.

It isn't hard to see why Democrats are anxious to get Mueller in front of the CSPAN cameras. "Actually, lawyer Don McGahn had a much better chance of being fired than Mueller".
