Ex-White House counsel calls Robert Mueller 'American hero'

Bernie Sanders to Hold Campaign Rally in Henderson

Separately, the House Judiciary Committee requested documents from 81 individuals as part of what chairman Jerrold Nadler called an "investigation into the alleged corruption, obstruction, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration".

A U.S. congressional panel says it has served document requests on 81 government agencies, entities and individuals as part of an investigation into alleged obstruction of justice and other abuses by President Donald Trump and others.

In announcing the Judiciary Committee probe, Nadler said, "Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical and constitutional rules and norms". "Trump did what he always does when he feels down", he said.

Trump called the Russian Federation investigation a "witch hunt" on Twitter at least eight times from when Cobb took over the White House legal team on July 31, 2017, through March 2018 - roughly two months before he resigned. However, former Trump attorney Ty Cobb tells ABC News that he doesn't think that the Mueller probe is a witch hunt or a hoax.

The office also has been scrutinizing the president's Trump Organization business and sent a subpoena to Trump's inaugural committee about a record $107 million in donations in 2016.

But Trump might as well get used to it because even when Mueller issues his report, House Democrats will pick up the investigatory slack.

The revelation that the president had to intervene on his daughter's behalf comes as the White House faces increasing scrutiny from Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives.

Crew Dragon docks with ISS
If the programme continues to go to plan, SpaceX and NASA plan to send humans back into space from the USA later this year. In SpaceX's case, NASA has agreed to pay $2.6 billion for six round trips to the ISS.

Circling back to the question of whether the widespread House investigations are warranted, therefore, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler explained it this way: "Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen". "The White House produced 21,000 plus-or-minus 1,000 documents".

House Democrats are expanding the Russian Federation probe to investigate potential criminal actions by the president; Kevin Corke has the details from the White House.

He said it's unclear how the American public will respond to a slew of new investigations if Mueller does not agree that Trump "was greatly aided by the Russians in a grand conspiracy to throw the election".

Their requests hone in on a number of actions by the president that might support this conclusion: the dismissal of Trump's national security aide Michael Flynn, the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and Trump's alleged pressure on attorney general Jeff Sessions and several senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials seen as not loyal or hostile. The committee asked McGahn for documents related to any discussion involving Trump regarding the possibility of firing Mueller around June of 2017 "or any conversation in which President Trump stated, in words or substance, that he wanted the Mueller investigation shut down, restrained or otherwise limited in or around December 2017".

Mr Nadler, whose committee has the power to conduct impeachment hearings, also said it was "very clear" that the president had obstructed justice.

Some Trump allies say NY poses the biggest risk of boring into his family finances, a "red line" the president has warned prosecutors not to cross.

It also will address accusations of campaign finance law violations and potential violations of the US Constitution's ban on foreign emoluments.
