Democrats to face off against a reluctant Mueller

House Democrats are facing a daunting challenge this week — goading Robert Mueller into offering testimony that could irreparably damage Donald Trump’s presidency.

In the three months since the conclusion of the former special counsel’s investigation, Democrats have struggled to use Mueller’s 448-page report to stoke a public outcry against the president’s conduct, despite evidence that Trump sought to thwart the probe.

And on Wednesday, they’ll be up against a witness who didn’t want to testify in the first place — he had to be subpoenaed — and one who, over more than a decade of regular Capitol Hill testimony, has mastered the art of the dodge. For those reasons, Democrats are already downplaying expectations for the blockbuster hearings.

Still, when Mueller testifies for three hours before the House Judiciary Committee and two hours before the House Intelligence Committee, Democrats are expected to press Mueller to state that he might Continue reading “Democrats to face off against a reluctant Mueller”

Vice President Mike Pence said both he and President Donald Trump are "not pleased" with the "send her back" chant that broke out at Trump’s recent reelection rally.

Still, Pence declined to condemn any attempts to repeat such cheers, saying "If it happened again, [Trump] … might make an effort to speak out against it."

"The president wasn’t pleased about it. Neither was I," Pence said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS’ "Face the Nation." "The president’s been very clear about that. But what we’re also not pleased about is the fact that there are four members of Congress who are engaging in the most outrageous statements."

Asked several times by host Major Garrett if he "wanted to see them repeated," Pence said: "The president was very clear that he wasn’t happy about it. And that if it happened again he — he might — he might Continue reading “Pence ‘not pleased’ with ‘send-her-back’ chant, but declines to urge an end”

Adam Schiff wants Mueller to bring his report ‘to life’

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said on Sunday he hopes Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House will bring the former special counsel’s report "to life."

"Since most of our constituents in their busy lives haven’t had the opportunity to read that report — and it’s a pretty dry prosecutorial work product — we want Bob Mueller to bring it to life, to talk about what’s in that report," the California Democrat told Margaret Brennan on CBS’ "Face the Nation."

"It’s a pretty damning set of facts," he said, "that involve a presidential campaign in a close race welcoming help from a hostile foreign power, not reporting it but eagerly embracing it, building it into their campaign strategy, lying about it to cover up, then obstructing an investigation into foreign interference again to try to cover up.
