Judge’s Ruling in Trump Lawsuit Challenging Congressional Subpoena Expected Shortly

House Democrats are probing whether the nondisclosure agreements that the Trump White House has made outgoing employees sign comply with whistleblower protection laws.

The committee posted notice Tuesday of the hearing.

Consovoy argued that Congress was acting more like law enforcement than legislators in their pursuit of Trump's financial records.

Impeachment by the Democratic-run House would be politically divisive and unlikely to succeed in a Senate run by Republicans, Adam Schiff, chairman of the House intelligence committee, told ABC's This Week.

The Don who said no to the Donald, at a farewell ceremony for departing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on May 9.

"If we have to, we'll hold him in contempt if he doesn't obey his subpoena", Nadler said.

For almost two years, the nation watched and waited as special counsel Robert Mueller investigated President Donald Trump and his campaign for potential collusion with Russian Federation and obstruction of justice.


The Democrat-led House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday released a draft funding bill for Interior, Environment and related agencies for fiscal year 2020 that rejects proposed cuts at EPA outlined in President Donald Trump's most recent budget.

Instead, he reserved judgment on whether Trump should be indicted and asked Attorney General William Barr to make the final call on the matter.

Schiff also argued that Trump's obstruction of the congressional investigation is categorically different from President Barack Obama's opposition to congressional investigative efforts during his presidency. "Democrats are demanding documents they know they have no legal right to see - including confidential communications between the President and foreign leaders and grand jury information that can not be disclosed under the law". "It will become clear to the American public what we need to do".

House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., on Friday subpoenaed the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service for six years' of Trump's tax returns, after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin rejected his request under an obscure provision of the tax code. His problem, Barr said, was more with the timing of the release of information - Mueller wanted the report released sequentially; Barr wanted to release it all at once.

Some Democrats signaled that moment could be approaching quickly.

"That's all of [what] their focus has been, into investigating the president and trying to. find things that they could bring as a basis of impeachment", Steube said.
