Democrats weigh how to respond to the Mueller report

While Trump's team had indicated it would release a rebuttal to Mueller's report, Giuliani said that was not imminent although it would probably be released at some point. Trump told Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, that news stories alleging that Trump's 2016 White House campaign had ties to Russian Federation were false and the president asked whether Rogers could do anything to counter them.

Trump is not out of the woods yet, and while by strict legal criminal rules he could not be found as having committed a felony, his conduct to thwart the Mueller probe amounted to series of efforts to obstruct justice, perhaps not on the strict application of the law, but certainly on the basis of the higher ethical and moral standards applicable to a head of state.

Democratic leaders are seizing on the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's conspiracy-and-obstruction investigation to damage the credibility of President Donald Trump and warning that impeachment proceedings are still a possibility.

The debate is taking place from the presidential campaign trail to Congress, with some White House hopefuls saying Trump's conduct described in the Mueller report is worthy of a formal charge by the House.

Two months before special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in the spring of 2017, President Donald Trump picked up the phone and called the head of the largest USA intelligence agency. The requests to those officials, Mueller said, "were not interpreted by the officials who received them as directives to improperly interfere with the investigation". "It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings".

Either way, Trump insisted he wasn't anxious.

Trump said today he is "not even a little bit" concerned about the possibility of impeachment.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has just issued a subpoena to President Donald Trump's former White House Counsel, Don McGahn, to testify before Congress. McGahn, according to the Mueller report, was instrumental in blocking the President from committing illegal acts, and likely saved him from certain obstruction charges.
