Trump may provoke US lawmakers to impeach him: senior Democrat

Letter to the Editor | Take a close look at Mueller report

The first request came after attorney general William Barr allowed the White House to get an advance look at the report, which confirmed that McGahn testified that he had refused a June 2017 directive from Trump to facilitate the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Exhibit C: Faced with an entirely partisan and baseless contempt vote in the House of Representatives for his justifiable refusal to comply with a Democratic subpoena (for the unredacted Mueller report and its supporting documents), did Mr. Barr buckle, as his predecessor Jeff Sessions - who needlessly recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation - might have, and give Democrats what they asked for? McGahn initially entertained the White House request.

The Trump White House has instructed McGahn to refuse to comply with Democrats' subpoena, and House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep.

The White House, Groves said, "will not and can not comply" with what he called "unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats". McGahn apparently mulled. "We did not perceive it as any kind of threat or something sinister", says McGahn's lawyer, William Burck, in a statement.

He said that instead of trying to shift focus to the booming economy, President Trump and his party should work to publicize the fact some Democrats are trying to force Barr to violate federal law.

Amazon's proposition to employees: Quit and we'll pay you to haul packages
He said that more than 200 Amazon delivery businesses have been created since the company launched the program in June of 2018. The offer is open to most part-time and full-time Amazon employees, including warehouse workers who pack and ship orders.

In an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, Giuliani said McGahn was "wrong" about what Trump asked him and "hopelessly confused". Trump claimed he did no such thing, then invoked Executive Privilege with hopes of stopping McGahn from telling Congress his side of the story.

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

Mueller's team found no evidence of collusion, as outline in the report, but laid out 10 "episodes" that could potentially be instances of obstruction of justice by the president. "They asked McGahn to lie because they know there's overwhelming evidence of obstruction".

Nettles also said he was concerned that U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, in a public letter released March 24, apparently mischaracterized Mueller's findings to make them appear less serious than they were. McGahn prepared to resign at one point rather than carry out Trump's instructions. 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.
