With Mueller probe over, Trump approval at 43% — CNN Poll

Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden said Congress will have "no alternative" but pursuing impeachment if President Donald Trump or his associates block investigations based on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report.

"I would say it's done, "Trump told Fox News".

Herridge then asked, "So, is it done?" In an early February poll, 65% of Republicans said they strongly approved of Trump's handling of the presidency.

A federal judge denied a request to dismiss a lawsuit alleging President Donald Trump is violating the Constitution by conducting business with foreign governments.


Flood also said Mueller's 448-page report suffered from "an extraordinary legal defect" by failing to determine whether Trump had committed the crime of obstruction of justice.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. "It remains to be seen how it would be paid for [but] infrastructure in America has never been a partisan issue and we have to move forward in a very nonpartisan way for the future".

As a result, foreign leaders have chosen to solicit services from the president's properties in exchange for payment - such as hosting events at Trump's Washington D.C. hotel - a practice which critics say has put Trump in the unique position to directly profit from his public service.

They stressed Barr's readiness to defend his handling of the Mueller report before a Republican-controlled Senate panel on the day before he skipped the House hearing.


President Donald Trump's narrow definition of an "emolument" failed to win him an escape from a lawsuit by nearly 200 Congressional Democrats who claim the president is violating the Constitution by doing business with foreign governments.

Trump added that he believes the conclusion of the Mueller investigation - which found no evidence of collusion, but did not clear him of obstruction - has completely cleared him of wrongdoing, and Congress should stop investigating him. They say the provision was created to guard against undue influence by foreign governments by barring any "emolument" - meaning a gift or payment - without prior approval from Congress.

The decision in Washington from US District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan adopted a broad definition of the anticorruption ban and could set the stage for Democratic lawmakers to begin seeking information from the Trump Organization.

House Democrats also want the Treasury Department to release the president's income taxes.


On Sunday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that Trump could use executive privilege to block McGahn from complying with a congressional subpoena.
