Nadler: DOJ, Dems strike deal over Mueller report evidence

New York City. Jerry Nadler offered made remarks about Special Counsel Mueller's statement on the Russian probe and the

"Given our conversations with the Department, I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now", said Nadler.

The deal comes on a day when the Judiciary Committee begins a series of hearings on the Mueller report, with former Nixon White House counsel and Watergate figure John Dean testifying.

And they will lay the groundwork for an appearance from Mueller himself, despite his stated desire to avoid testifying. But lawmakers will get access to interview notes and other evidence, including "first-hand accounts of misconduct", Nadler said at the outset of the hearing.

The House Judiciary Committee plans to cover the first topic at a Monday hearing on "presidential obstruction and other crimes". He said all members of the committee will be able to view them.

Educating the American public on what is in the Mueller report is a priority for Democrats, who believe Trump and his allies have created the public impression that the report said there was no obstruction of justice.

The deal emerged after months of rocky negotiations between the committee and the Justice Department over the committee's subpoena for the full Mueller report and its underlying documents.

Kerr says Durant will practice ahead of Game 5
He's one of the best competitors I've ever been around". "I'm a little sore but more mentally and emotionally". Durant was supposed to practice on Thursday prior to Friday's Game 4 but ultimately was unable to do so.

He added that he knows the committee would want to hear from witnesses who are part of Mueller's report, but the "Trump administration is making it as hard as possible for anybody on the House side to do anything to learn about what their activities were or are". The chairmen could take legal action to enforce subpoenas in the future without a vote of the full House, so long as the chairmen have approval from a five-person, bipartisan group where Democrats have the majority.

The committee was also calling for information relating to former White House counsel Don McGahn, also threating to hold him in contempt.

On Tuesday, the House has scheduled a vote to authorize contempt cases against Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Donald McGahn for failing to comply with subpoenas from the Democratic-controlled House. We are starting with the Mueller report which shows ample evidence of multiple crimes of obstruction of justice and abuse of power.

That measure may be voted on as early as Tuesday. We know that. I think he was disbarred and he went to prison. Mueller's report noted that the investigation was looking into "criminal conspiracy as defined in federal law, not the commonly discussed term 'collusion'".

Representative Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said the agreement indicated the Trump administration was not stonewalling Congress, adding that Democrats should focus on the threat from Russian Federation.

The report also outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to interfere with Mueller's investigation but declined to make a judgment on whether that amounted to obstruction of justice.
