Trump must turn over financial records: U.S. Judge

Republican Joins Democrats' Louder Calls for Impeachment as Former White House Attorney Defies Subpoena

Nadler has to know, though, that Mueller's not going to say anything far afield than what Mueller put in his report, or for that matter what happened to it when it went to the Attorney General.

The trio were due to discuss spending on aging USA roads and bridges, a rare possible area of agreement between the White House and its political antagonists.

Mr Trump also charged his political opponents with "abuse" and railed against their invoking of "the big i word" - impeachment.

President Trump erupted this morning when he heard Nancy Pelosi accuse him of engaging in a cover up, according to a source familiar with his reaction.

"Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer claimed the president's storm-out was a setup and he never meant to negotiate over infrasctructure spending in the first place", the Mail said. Its clear this was not a spontaneous move on the president's part.

"We have a president that is actively trying to cover up and prevent the American people from getting to the truth, and that is not something I think we can not tolerate", says Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI).

Ramos, reading his 25-page opinion in a NY courtroom, said he wouldn't grant Trump's request for a preliminary injunction.

"When we got in the room, the curtains were closed", the NY senator said about their brief meeting.

At a hastily arranged press conference in the Rose Garden, Trump fired back at Pelosi.

In the early days of Trump's presidency, few aides had more frequent access to him than Hicks, a former model and public relations consultant hired by Trump into the White House from his daughter Ivanka Trump's staff.

Trump weekend tweets on abortion aimed at toning down debate
Protestors will gather in Public Square on Tuesday to rally against the "heartbeat" abortion ban signed by Gov. And I know there's a lot of loud-mouthing, but it's, this is who Alabama elected.

Congressional Democrats have picked up the mantle of the inquiry, issuing a flurry of subpoenas. "And he came up with this pre-planned excuse".

If the current course continues, however, the two sides will instead be fighting over who should shoulder the most blame.

Trump, a Republican who is seeking re-election next year, has aggressively sought to defy congressional oversight of his administration since Democrats took control of the US House of Representatives in January.

Democrats have, through various House committees, been looking into the finances of the President, his campaign, and the activities that may have constituted an obstruction of justice with regard to the Mueller probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In January, he abruptly left a meeting with Pelosi and other Democrats at the White House to discuss the government shutdown he initiated after Congress refused to provide as much money for a border wall as he'd demanded.

The decision ended a standoff between the committee and the Justice Department for access to counter-intelligence reports generated by Mueller.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta upheld the Committee's subpoena on Monday, arguing that it has the authority to examine Trump's records.

Media captionWhat does it take to impeach a president?

While Pelosi previously said she wants to work with the administration to make the deal better for Democrats, this is the first time she has directed members of her party to sit down across the table from the U.S. Trade Representative and his team.

Although Pelosi has urged Democrats to stay away from impeachment talk for now, she did tell them that that Trump's all-out fight against congressional oversight and other actions seemed to her to amount to a "coverup".

There is a "danger", he added, because if there is a Democratic president in the future, "they can impeach him for any reason".
