Mercedes Schlapp: Pelosi 'Prison' Comments Come as Little Surprise

"Since the release of Robert Mueller's report, White House stonewalling of congressional subpoenas and Mr. Mueller's first public comments, nearly 60 House Democrats, a quarter of the caucus, have said they support an impeachment inquiry", writes the New York Times.

'Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider, ' Mueller said last week.

The measure follows through on House Democrats' plans to go to court in their quest for an unredacted copy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, possible obstruction of that probe by Trump and top officials' testimony. When she got to the part of her speech focused on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on potential collusion between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russian officials, though, the crowd turned on her.

Nadler reportedly pushed Pelosi to let his committee start an impeachment inquiry, but Pelosi still opposes that idea.

Facing what they call unprecedented obstruction from the Trump Administration, House Democrats introduced a resolution Thursday to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress.

During the interview with Fox News conducted ahead of a ceremony that paid tribute to soldiers who stormed a shore occupied by Nazi Germany 75 years ago, Trump said that Mueller - a former Marine who served in Vietnam - had made "such a fool out of himself" last week when he made a public statement regarding his investigation into Russian election interference.

Speaker of the House and leftist icon Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has performed a very careful dance on the issue of possible impeachment for President Donald Trump. "She's a disaster", Trump said, according to excerpts released by Fox News.

'Nancy Pelosi doesn't talk about it, ' he said.

The House will hold hearings next week "focused on the alleged crimes and other misconduct laid out in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report".

Pelosi is walking an increasingly thin line as the clamor for impeachment grows in her caucus, despite her insistence that before impeachment there needs to be broad public support and bipartisan backing, neither of which has materialized.

Mueller has not testified and has not corrected anything.

Trump also praised veterans by tweeting a graphic of D-Day with a quote from himself: "They did not know if they would survive the hour".

"I was there in the Clinton administration when we went through that fiasco and it hurt the Republicans because the American people don't want you playing politics with their tax dollars and their lives", he said. But Trump has heightened attacks against Pelosi despite her continued stance against impeaching him. "And we'll make that happen". "I hope we take that back to Washington, not wanting to put somebody in jail but putting Americans first".
