McGahn said he told the president he would see what he could do and did not act on the request. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is not giving up on his views about Russian Federation collusion despite the findings of the Mueller report.

President Donald Trump said he is opposed to current and former White House providing testimony to Congress and told the Washington Post with the release of the Mueller report there is no need for Congress to continue interviewing White House aides. Political Junkie Ken Rudin tackles the biggest stories of the week when he joins host Frank Stasio.

This week, the president said he "never" told McGahn to fire Mueller, and that if he wanted to remove the special counsel, he "could have done it" himself. Democrats are probing Trump's past business dealings and possible conflicts of interest posed by his continued ownership of extensive business interests. Nadler has also subpoenaed the full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report from the Department of Justice. "McGahn did not carry out the direction, however, deciding that he would resign rather than trigger what he regarded as a potential Saturday Night Massacre", the report stated, referencing the Watergate scandal.

Sessions was frequently asked by Trump about the Russian Federation probe and other possible probes into Trump's political rivals.

"President Trump and Attorney General (William) Barr are now openly ordering federal employees to ignore congressional subpoenas and simply not show up - without any assertion of a valid legal privilege", Representative Elijah Cummings, who chairs the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement. As TNI has previously reported, McGahn was the official responsible for overseeing the large influx of conservative judicial appointments under Trump, including managing the confirmation of Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

President Donald Trump has been, even by his own lofty standards, on a bit of a Twitter bender over the last week or so - simultaneously rejoicing in the fact that he was not charged in the Mueller report and angry at all of his critics for their unwillingness to drop the so-called "witch hunt".

"We need to look at his freakish relationship between (Russia's President Vladimir) Putin and Trump", he reportedly said during the call. In a morning tweet, Trump sought to blame the media for misreporting what happened. Bannon said that, although the White House thought about beseeching Mueller to become Director again, he did not come in looking for the job'.

Slightly more than 1 in 3 Americans say the Mueller investigation makes them less likely to support Trump's re-election in 2020, while 14 percent say they are more likely and a plurality of 46 percent say the findings are not a factor in their choice for the next election. He explains, "If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state". It is highest among African Americans, 69 per cent of whom say they favour it.
