Cory Booker, senator and Democratic presidential candidate, based his candidacy on a conciliatory and positive tone. It is therefore not surprising that the impeachment conversation does not interest him.
Asked by journalists on Thursday night in Nevada, the New Jersey senator said categorically, "No".
"If a president violates the law … of course, you have to take it into account, but I'm not at this point yet, and I think what we should be talking about is continuing this investigation."
Biden to officially enter the race
Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to announce his candidacy for the presidency next week.
That's what three people know about Biden's projects. It has been reported for the first time by the Atlantic.
Biden will enter the race as a Democratic leader, although the 76-year-old is faced with questions about his age and whether his more moderate record matches a party that has become more liberal. Recently, he has also been challenged to inappropriately touch women at public events, for which he has apologized since and has committed to changing his behavior.
The announcement is expected as early as Wednesday and would end months of deliberations on its political future.
Those familiar with Biden's projects were anxious to remain anonymous because they were not allowed to speak in public.
Representative Doug Collins, a high-ranking Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee, calls President Nadler's "extremely broad" subpoena.
It orders the department to provide Congress with millions of documents that would be clearly illegal to share, as the vast majority of these documents were obtained as a result of nearly 2,800 grand jury summonses that are ongoing.
The question is whether it is "too wide" on the hill, but the demand is undeniably broad, as explained by Jon Swaine, reporter at the Guardian:
Nadler's motion asks Barr to return "all the documents obtained and the investigative documents created" by Mueller's office. It sets Barr a deadline of May 1st.
This document, which represents all the work created over the last 22 months by 19 lawyers and nearly 40 other investigators, could well have more than one million pages.
Mueller's team interviewed approximately 500 people, issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, and obtained hundreds of more orders for electronic communications records.
Barr may decide to oppose the application, which would force Nadler's committee to go to court to request that the summons be executed. It is possible that the dispute will reach the United States Supreme Court.
In a statement Friday, Nadler said he was willing to work with the Justice Department to "reach a reasonable compromise", but stressed that he would not accept a situation that " leaves most members of Congress in the dark. "
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was on the defensive on ABC's "Good Morning America" after the newspaper Mueller insisted on wording suggesting she had made a dishonest statement to journalists about the sacking former FBI leader James Comey.
In May 2017, Sanders said the White House had heard "countless FBI members" who had lost confidence in former FBI director James B. Comey.
According to the Mueller report, this statement was "unfounded on anything".
She told George Stephanopoulos on Friday morning:
"It was the heat of the moment, which meant it was not a written topic of conversation," Sanders told ABC. "I'm sorry I was not a robot, unlike the Democratic Party, which stayed for two and a half years and repeated many times that there was a collusion between the Russian president and his campaign.
Donald Trump started his Friday tweeting cursed lyrics next to his angry name, and also apparently attacking taking notes?
Asset called the Mueller report "Crazy" and "written by 18 angry Democrats Trump Haters, who are fabricated and totally fake," Friday morning before suggesting "beware of people who take so-called" notes ", when the notes do not appear. have never existed until needed. "
There is no evidence that the notes on which the Mueller report was based were generated after the fact.
he continued that "statements made in the" report "about me, some of which are bullshit, and are given only so that the other is beautiful (or that I am bad)."
The two tweet thread is over in the middle of a thought with ellipses so … stay tuned?
Some of us are old enough to remember that once upon a time, Trump and his team considered the report "crazy" as a "total justification" for the president. In fact, most of us are. It was less than a month ago.
House issues subpoena for Mueller's full report
Hello, this is the day of the Hangover Mueller report. If you feared that there is a lull in the political news cycle after the eagerly anticipated and redacted special advocate, I have good news. There will not be any.
First, the Judiciary Committee of the House has summoned the full report of Mueller, following the publication on Thursday by the Department of Justice.
"We need the entire report, unexpurgated, and the underlying documents to make informed decisions," President Jerrold Nadler said Friday on ABC, "Good Morning America."
In a statement, he added:
My committee needs the full text of the report and the underlying evidence, consistent with past practice, and has the right to obtain it. The essays seem to be significant. Until now, we have not seen any of the actual evidence developed by the Special Council to present this case. Even the redacted version of the report describes serious cases of wrongdoing by President Trump and some of his closest aides. It is now incumbent upon Congress to determine the full extent of this alleged misconduct and to decide what steps to take to move forward. "
In case you missed it: the report released yesterday described 11 cases in which Donald Trump or his campaign engaged in a possible obstruction of justice and suggested to Congress to prosecute these acts as crimes.
That would mean an indictment, a prospect that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flatly rejected.
She may be reconsidering though. Late Thursday, she sent a letter to her colleagues and told him that she was scheduling a teleconference on Monday to discuss the Mueller report. "Congress will not be silent," she wrote.
