GOP Lawmakers Open Hearing by Demanding Schiff Resign

Former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Clinton left talking during the funeral service for Aretha Franklin at Greater Grace Temple Friday Aug. 31 2018 in Detroit

As we now know from Attorney General William Barr's summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation (a summary Mueller has not disputed), there was no evidence of collusion and not enough evidence to support an indictment for obstruction. "He's not gonna give any pardons", said Rudy Giuliani, the president's outside attorney. "This was an attempted takeover of our government of our country, an illegal takeover".

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 presidential election to boost Trump's chances of winning the White House, and continues to attempt to interfere in U.S. and other countries' elections. He also accused former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of lying about possible Russian Federation collusion.

You might think it's okay that the president's son-in-law also took that meeting.

"I thought, that's potentially obstruction of justice and I hope somebody is going to look at that", the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said in the new interview.

"You have to find out what happened in the back of that plane", Mr. Trump said.

Barr was nominated by Trump for attorney general in December, and confirmed by the Senate in February.

Pelosi said she found Barr's decision to write the letter "arrogant".

"I was going to fire Comey knowing, there was no good time to do it". "I purposely didn't want to involve myself in this whole thing".

"There's something wrong with him", the president said. In total, five Trump aides pleaded guilty and a sixth, Stone, is awaiting trial on charges that he lied to Congress and engaged in witness tampering.

U.S. President Donald Trump and fellow Republicans in Congress urged House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff to resign on Thursday, drawing an unequivocal rejection from their Democratic target.

"Mr. Schiff has been making claims and accusations against not just this president, but against his family and against other innocent people that we now know have been demonstrably proven as innocent", said Stewart.

"You might say that's all ok. He should be forced out of office". But Mueller reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. They criticize him for saying there was "more than circumstantial evidence" of collusion during interviews.

Outside the hearing room, the main battle continued over releasing Mueller's still-confidential report.

In one Mueller case, that of longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, the government said it had turned over 9 terabytes of discovery, an amount so large that Stone's lawyers said if it were on paper it would pile as high as the Washington Monument, twice.

"I've been talking to Senator Graham". "Many people were incredibly hurt by this scam". "They just don't know what to do, so they have to make an attack". I don't actually think it is-there were lots of warning flags that Russian nationals were attempting to meddle with the election and drag the Trump campaign into it. It's a norm, I think, that top intelligence and other officials from an outgoing administration do not peddle false stories suggesting that a candidate, much less the president-elect, has conspired with a foreign adversary. "But I would hope that that would be the next phase of investigations here".
