Moderate House Democrats wary of impeachment debate

Former White House Counsel Don McGahn Twice Rebuffed Trump on Obstruction of Justice

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, that McGahn's record remains legally protected from disclosure.

Schiff, who represents California and chairs the House Intelligence Committee, made these comments during an interview on ABC's This Week on Sunday. "No, I didn't ask him to do that", Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing for Louisiana Tuesday morning.

There are other White House aides on the Congressional list.

Last week, Baker spoke out against the president publicly for one of the first times. "This White House will not and can not comply with unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats".

Beauchamp then wrote, incorrectly, that "hours before the press release, Barr held a press conference in which he spun its findings in Trump's favor, saying (for example) that the report found "no collusion" when it expressly did not make any judgments about whether the president "colluded" with Russian Federation in any fashion".

"You can't have a privilege - an executive privilege - when you're not the executive", Schiff, a California Democrat, said.

Goldman Sachs Says Higher US Tariffs on China Are Coming
On Wednesday morning, US stock market indexes were mostly weaker again, pointing to a third straight day of losses on Wall Street. Former Vice President Biden took heat last week when he pooh-poohed China being an economic threat to the US.

Amid Giuliani's public assault on McGahn, Burck contacted the White House to complain that such claims were unwise, according to a person familiar with the discussion.

Rep. Van Drew compared the current tensions between Democrats and the Trump administration to the Fast and Furious dispute between the Obama Justice Department and House Republicans in 2012, when House Republicans held Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for Justice Department documents pertaining to the gunrunning operation.

Don McGahn leaves the White House on August 30, 2018.

Rudy Giuliani hinted Saturday that he believes there is a constitutional crisis, although it isn't the one that Democrats have been talking about since the release of the Mueller report. In several cases, the special counsel wrote, there was substantial evidence that the president sought to obstruct the probe, including in his interactions with McGahn. "Nadler and Pelosi have to be really dumb if they think any serious federal court would support a contempt effort to get at the attorney general, based on urging him to break the law".

It isn't hard to see why Democrats are anxious to get Mueller in front of the CSPAN cameras. Trump said he never said the word "fire", which McGahn agreed was true, but McGahn said he strongly believed the president's intentions and actions indicated he wanted Mueller removed.
