House Oversight Committee to vote on contempt of Congress against Barr, Ross

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler D-NY Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee speaks during a news conference in New York Wednesday

"John Dean's been a loser for many years", the President told reporters, adding: "You can't impeach somebody when there's never been a thing done wrong".

McGahn, a star witness in the Mueller report, last month defied a subpoena for his testimony and related documents after the White House directed him not to cooperate with the Judiciary panel. Besides Dean, two former United States attorneys and a legal scholar are scheduled to appear.

Trump's former White House counsel Donald McGahn, in fact, has refused to testify because the White House told him not to.

The administration continued its stonewalling last week.

Napolitano also said the deal "proved the president correct", because he has decried the House's investigation into his actions as a "do-over" of the Mueller investigation, which Napolitano says is "exactly what the Democrats want to do".

The House tomorrow, however, will vote to authorise the panel to take Barr to civil court to enforce a subpoena for the underlying documents should the documents prove insufficient to investigations.

If Cummings moved forward with his plans to hold a committee contempt vote Wednesday, Barr would recommend that Trump invoke privilege for the documents, which were subpoenaed by the committee in April. A contempt resolution, however, is virtually unenforceable and would have little practical effect.

Contempt of Congress proceedings against Attorney General William Barr are suspended for the time being following news that the Department of Justice has reached a subpoena compliance agreement with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y.

Pelicans open to multiteam Davis deal
They would take on the one-year contract of Solomon Hill to sweeten the offer and might even ask the Lakers for another pick. Griffin, Davis and Davis' agent, Rich Paul, met in Los Angeles on May 29 and Davis' trade stance has remained unchanged.

The vote, along with two hearings this week on the Mueller report, is partly created to mollify anxious Democrats who have tried to pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.

Collins also called Democrats' legal arguments weak and said they could wind up hurting their own cause if they don't find favor with judges in court. CSPAN was the only channel who carried the hearing in full.

Claiming the "Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system", Nadler implicated WikiLeaks in criminal activity, saying, "They [Russian military intelligence officers] stole private information, and then released that information through fake online identities and through the organization WikiLeaks". The House Ways and Means Committee is seeking his tax returns.

Mueller, who resigned as special counsel the same day, repeated a line in his report explaining that his team would have exonerated Trump of obstruction if it could have.

McGahn was a prominent witness in Mueller's report in the sections dealing with Trump relationship with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who Trump was angry with for recusing himself from overseeing Mueller's probe. She told the committee: "The obstruction described in the report posed a risk to our national security because it was created to prevent investigators from learning all of the facts about an attack on our country by a hostile foreign adversary..."

"One of the reasons I've had a knot in my stomach, one of the reasons I'm on CNN is because I'm deeply troubled by the presidency we're living with", Dean said.

House Republicans had already started trying to discredit Dean as a witness before Trump's tweets. For example, Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, while Trump fired James Comey.
