Karl Rove: Impeachment push puts Dems at odds with independents before 2020

Jennifer Rubin Pelosi is right. People don’t want Trump impeached. They just want him gone

"This is all. It's done", Trump said during a Fox News interview on Thursday. "I assume for the $35 million, my taxes, my financial statements, which are phenomenal, they've gone through anything". She said, "The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United states".

No. 2 House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer told reporters earlier that impeachment was "the ultimate option" for forcing White House cooperation. "The White House is engaged in unprecedented stonewalling on all fronts, and they have refused to produce a single document or witness into the Oversight Committee through this whole calendar year". Pelosi says the president agrees the deal should include broadband infrastructure improvements.

Barr had been asked to testify about special counsel Robert Mueller's report, but the Justice Department said he would not appear.

President Donald Trump's narrow definition of an "emolument" failed to win him an escape from a lawsuit by nearly 200 Congressional Democrats who claim the president is violating the Constitution by doing business with foreign governments. That could potentially lead to legal steps against the top US law enforcement official.

The numbers have shifted since March 5th when the poll was taken before the Mueller report was released.

Independent swing voters who could decide the 2020 presidential election are losing patience with Democrats' push to impeach President Trump, according to a new poll released Thursday.

Pelosi has cautioned fellow Democrats to see where their investigations lead. Nixon resigned in 1974 over the Watergate scandal.

All eyes on BTS as the group bags two awards at BBMAs
As part of her performance, the singer made a splash with surprise appearances from 'N Sync and Justin Bieber. Kelly Clarkson will host and perform at the show, airing live on NBC at 8 p.m.

The White House has objected to McGahn's appearance.

Mueller's 448-page report, nearly two years in the making, unearthed numerous links between Russians and Trump's campaign, but concluded there was not enough evidence to establish that the campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Moscow.

Flood's letter said the Mueller report itself suffers from "an extraordinary legal defect".

Democrats have argued Trump waived the right to assert executive privilege - which allows a president to withhold information about internal executive branch deliberations from other branches of government - by allowing advisers to cooperate extensively with Mueller.

President Trump also called for an end to "costly and time consuming" partisan investigations into the White House. Nadler said he would move forward with a contempt citation as soon as Monday.

Democrats have said they may issue a subpoena to try to force Barr to testify.

Trump and the Democrats have clashed over what the once-little-known word "emoluments" meant at the time the Founders wrote the Constitution, with Democrats using a broad definition to cover profits from Trump's businesses and Trump seeking a narrow meaning.
