Trump says Congress 'can't impeach' him

Pelosi Says Trump Can Be Held Accountable Without ImpeachmentMore

She applauded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who she said was "right to be cautious" about it.

Moving to impeach the president could satisfy those Democrats outraged by what they read in the Mueller report.

"The response is that this request doesn't relate to a legitimate inquiry", Randall Eliason, who teaches white collar crime law at George Washington University, told me. Trump defiantly proclaimed on Twitter that the investigation "didn't lay a glove on me". A decision by Democrats to pursue impeachment over an obstruction charge in a politically charged independent investigation would be risky - a lesson Republicans learned 21 years ago after the move to impeach Bill Clinton. Voters generally don't like Trump much personally, but they've also just seen wild allegations of Trump being a Russian agent and/or stealing the election in 2016 collapse in Mueller's report on Russian collusion.

Pelosi's comments come as several of her Democratic chairmen suggested on the Sunday talk shows that impeachment might be an option.

The president fires back after Democrats subpoena former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify on the Mueller probe; Catherine Herridge reports.

USA adversaries will "use online influence operations to try to weaken democratic institutions, undermine alliances and partnerships, and shape policy outcomes", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee in January.

He alleged Democrats committed crimes and said they're looking "to Congress as last hope!" because "We waited for Mueller and WON". "The only way they can maybe luck out, and I don't think that's gonna happen - it might make it even the opposite, that's what a lot of people are saying - the only way they can luck out is by constantly going after me on nonsense".

Japan has also sent a destroyer to Qingdao , in the first visit of a Japanese navy ship to China since 2011, according to Japanese media.

Trump takes issue not with the implication of a constitutional crisis, but the fact that it is insufficiently clear that Costa made the first call (???).

Some congressional Republicans have urged the country to move forward after the Mueller report, while a few, including Senator Mitt Romney, have condemned Trump's actions.

"Giving the Supreme Court a role in the impeachment process itself was carefully considered but deliberately and emphatically discarded" by the authors of the constitution, said Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe. Whatever the truth, Mueller's report has inflicted damage on the former real estate tycoon and reality TV showman's reputation through stories of close aides maneuvering to stop the president from going too far in his attempts to slow down the probe.

Trump also claimed Wednesday that the Democrats were overreaching in trying to obtain his tax returns because he assumed Mueller already had obtained that record.

"Oh, it's happening. It's being built now", Mr Trump said at the table. Even though the aides allegedly disobeyed him so that they could prevent more serious damage, Trump denied Monday that any sort of insubordination would be possible.

"Nobody disobeys me", Mr Trump said when asked if he was anxious about his orders not being followed.
