Democrats subpoena Mueller report amid calls for impeachment

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called upon her Democratic colleagues in the House of Representatives to "initiate impeachment proceedings" of President Donald J. Trump in the wake of the release of the redacted Mueller report, but it seems apparent the majority of Democrats in Congress actually do not think this is a viable idea.

"Regardless of what actions the president did or didn't take ... understanding in far greater detail the aggression of a foreign adversary nation against our election's infrastructure should ideally help us avoid such circumstances in the future", she said. Trump also reportedly questioned McGahn's habit of taking notes and making memos for the record.

"Know what makes me sick, Mitt?" But in light of Mueller's findings, Democratic leaders are under mounting pressure from the party's rising stars, deep-pocketed donors and even a presidential contender to seize the moment as a jumping-off point for trying to remove Trump from office.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of NY, is now signed on to an impeachment resolution from fellow Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, of MI, bringing new energy to the effort. "Anyway, it's up to the US taxpayers to ask such questions". In a statement, she said she would read the report carefully, then pivoted to other issues. Peskov repeated Kremlin denials of these allegations, saying the report "contains no proven evidence that Russian Federation allegedly interfered in the election process in the United States" and that "we do not accept such charges".

"This is not something I want to do", she added.

Still, speaking after a town hall on Thursday evening, the 35-year-old emphasized that most voters going into 2020 are more concerned about issues such as health care, education and infrastructure. Zug says she has since soured on Trump due to his "lies". The California lawmaker said the report failed to deliver the "imaginary evidence" incriminating Trump that Democrats had sought.

Sanders defends herself over Mueller report revelation
He's called him a national disgrace, discredited, a prosecutor gone rogue who oversaw a gang of thugs. Despite Mueller's assertions, Sanders stood behind her statement. "Are you kidding?" Sanders replied.

Large sums of cash found at ousted president's home
The money, which Radio Dabanga says was shown to reporters, was stuffed in bags created to contain 50kg (110lbs) of grain. Sudan's attorney general said on Saturday a new committee would be set up to oversee anti-corruption investigations.

Mixed results seen for N. America trade pact
NAFTA tore down most trade barriers between the United States, Canada and Mexico , leading to a surge in regional trade.

"I get it", she said.

Democrats looking to 2020 must also weigh whether voters' views on the Russian Federation probe are even susceptible to persuasion, given the country's deep partisan divides.

While no official figure has been released as to the total cost of Mueller's investigation, Newsweek estimated, using the latest publicly available information at the time of the probe's conclusion last month, that the sum price tag fell just short of $12.7 million as of December-though almost $7 million was classified as complementary spending from the Justice Department and was said to not have cost taxpayers extra cash because the money had been already earmarked for public use.

Warren has barely discussed Russian Federation or the Mueller probe on the campaign trail, and her own team says she hardly gets questioned by voters about the probe that has been the fixation of Washington and the media for two years.

Still, he said Mueller's findings would create the background "mood music" when Democrats talk in broad terms about corruption and government accountability.
