Standoff intensifies as Democrats subpoena Trump tax returns

Sarah Sanders Don't anticipate Mc Gahn obeying subpoena

Schiff, who represents California and chairs the House Intelligence Committee, made these comments during an interview on ABC's This Week on Sunday. That is inexorable. The American people have every right to hear what the man who did the investigation has to say and we now know we certainly can't rely on the attorney general who misrepresented his conclusions.

"The executive branch strategy mostly seems to be a blanket rejection of all attempts at oversight, regardless of the issue, up until the election", Lisa Kern Griffin, a professor of constitutional law at Duke University, tells Reuters.

Rep. Greg Steube claimed Tuesday on "Outnumbered Overtime" that Democrats are doing "everything they can" to undo the results of the 2016 election because they cannot defeat President Trump "at the ballot box".

Nettles also said he was concerned that U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, in a public letter released March 24, apparently mischaracterized Mueller's findings to make them appear less serious than they were.

"While I do not take this step lightly, I believe this action gives us the best opportunity to succeed and obtain the requested material", Neal said in a statement. Mueller had left out McGhan's belief the president hadn't obstructed justice, and Trump's lawyers wanted him to say so.

Attorneys representing President Donald Trump on Tuesday faced a tough grilling by a federal judge who expressed skepticism of their claims that Congress must have a legitimate "legislative purpose" in order to seek documents related to the president's finances.

Democrats have confronted Mr Trump and his administration for refusing to co-operate with at least six congressional investigations into his presidency, his family and his business interests.

Mehta, who was nominated to his position by President Obama, suggested during the hearing that Congress has wide latitude to investigate. "That would be a problem".

The Trump administration has argued that Democrats' request serves no legislative goal.

Once the House approves the Barr contempt resolution, Democrats are expected to head to civil court to try to get Nadler's subpoena for the full Mueller report and underlying evidence enforced.

Some Democrats signaled that moment could be approaching quickly.

Trump's stonewalling of congressional oversight does add weight to calls for impeachment, Schiff said, adding: "But you know, part of our reluctance is we are already a bitterly divided country and an impeachment process will divide us further".
