Democrats say Justice has agreed to provide key Mueller docs

'All members of the Judiciary Committee - Democrats and Republicans alike - will be able to view them, ' he said.

"The Department will share the first of these documents with us later today". But Mueller declined to make a judgment on whether President Trump obstructed justice, though the report outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to impede the investigation.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) arrives at a House Judiciary Committee hearing titled "Oversight of the Report by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III", at which witness former White House Counsel Donald McGahn was subpoened to testify at on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., May 21, 2019. The entire House was expected to vote Tuesday on a resolution that would hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for not complying with the subpoena. On Monday, the committee will hear from former White House counsel John Dean, who in 1973 famously spoke of a "cancer" on the Nixon presidency in the middle of the Watergate investigation.

Trump calls Mueller's probe a "witch hunt". Besides Dean, two former USA attorneys and a legal scholar are scheduled to appear. Mueller said there was not enough evidence to establish a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, but he said he could not exonerate Trump on obstruction. He said he'll pay particular attention to the question of whether Trump obstructed justice. The vote will put the full House on record approving the lawsuits, if leaders and committees decide they want to move forward with them.

"This appears to be part of a strategy to turn the Committee's oversight hearings into a mock-impeachment inquiry rather than a legitimate exercise in congressional oversight", ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Dean served four months in prison for his own efforts to aid the White House coverup of the 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters.

The contempt vote has been cancelled, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"The Mueller Report was a disaster for them", Trump wrote. Dean is scheduled to testify at 2 p.m. and the hearing, titled "Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes" will be streamed live.

Collins said in the letter that outside of impeachment proceedings, "it is out of order for a member of Congress, in debate, to engage in personalities with the president or express an opinion, even a third party opinion, accusing the president of a crime".
