Trump showdown with Democrats escalates over Russian Federation probe

While on a victory lap after being cleared of colluding with Russians in the 2016 election President Trump runs over his good news by being vindictive pushing to outlaw Obamacare and cutting aid to Puerto Rico

Mueller's team issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed almost 500 search warrants and interviewed more than 500 witnesses. "They tried to divide our country, to poison the national debate and to tear up the fabric of our great democracy", Trump said.

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon told CNN's Anderson Cooper Wednesday night that a special investigation similar to the Church committee in the 1970s is needed to probe the actions of the FBI and the Central Intelligence Agency. The Democrats said they want the report "in complete and unredacted form", along with any corresponding evidence.

Just because William Barr has decided that Trump's actions aren't prosecutable-and again, we don't know what Mueller had to say about most of these things-that does not make them okay, and it does not mean Congressman Schiff is going to give up.

"His letter on Sunday said that he wants to get out as much material as possible".

The Justice Department official said Barr discussed the length of the report during a phone call Wednesday with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler. "I think It's immoral, I think it's unethical, I think it's unpatriotic, and yes, I think it's corrupt, and evidence of collusion", Schiff said.

The Russians Have Landed Planes Full Of Troops, Military Advisers In Venezuela
China, Cuba, Russia and a number of other countries have endorsed Maduro as Venezuela's only legitimate president. Russian Federation has warned the United States and neighbors against a military intervention in Venezuela.

"It will be a product of negotiation", Schiff said. "We don't need you interpreting for us".

The debate played out in the Senate Thursday afternoon, where Sen.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Wednesday he was disappointed Barr would take weeks, not days, to release the report. "We should investigate who the liars were", Mr. Paul said. Manafort was convicted in Washington and Virginia of crimes related to years of Ukrainian political consulting work, and Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Republicans argued that Schiff knowingly misled the public about what he knew as the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee. But the partisan splits that have long marked the investigation remain even after it is done: Republicans say the report has cleared the president.

Republican Mike Turner was livid, saying Schiff "attacked in true McCarthy fashion each and every one of us", referring to 1950s USA senator Joseph McCarthy, who smeared politicians by alleging they were Communists or Soviet spies. "The Department of Justice should not be involved in a cover-up of what's actually in the report". The FBI released similar records following the conclusion of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, including a write-up of the interview agents did with Clinton herself. And that's not sitting well with many Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "No, thank you, Mr. Attorney General". Though grand jury testimony is historically not released, those records were made public after the Whitewater investigation into former President Bill Clinton and during an investigation into President Richard Nixon before he resigned.
