The Washington Post adds: "A growing number of House Democrats have publicly called for an impeachment inquiry following a public statement last week by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in which he reiterated that his office could not exonerate Trump of obstructing its probe of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election". If approved, the measure would put another aspect of the growing confrontation between Trump and House Democrats before the courts.
The full House of Representatives is expected to vote Tuesday on a resolution to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn in contempt for failing to comply with congressional subpoenas.
At a Wednesday night town hall in Fort Wayne, Indiana, that was broadcast on MSNBC, Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA said she came to believe that impeachment proceedings were necessary after reading "all 448 pages" of Mueller's report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Donald Trump took a transatlantic shot at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while he was in France on Thursday, unveiling a new derogatory nickname for the Democrat who reportedly wants to see him behind bars. It was the first time Mueller spoke publicly about the 22-month investigation, which concluded in March. McGahn is a key witness to numerous possible obstruction of justice incidents identified by Mueller.
The House Judiciary panel voted on May 8 to cite Barr for contempt of Congress.

Barr and former deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein subsequently determined Trump had not broken the law.
Mueller, though, left millions confused about the second part of the report, which laid out instances the team said may have constituted obstruction of justice, ultimately deciding not to charge Trump with a crime or recommend any charges but still claiming that they could not exonerate Trump, or prove him innocent. "I get it. But some things are bigger than politics, and this matters for our democracy, not just now, but under the next president and the next president and the next president", Warren said.
Yet Mueller, in obvious frustration, held a news conference to provide fodder for impeachment, saying he could not vindicate him for interfering in an investigation of a crime that never happened.
"I think it clearly shows the true colors of Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic Party", Schlapp said on Fox News. We take pride in being reader-funded so that we are beholden to you, not corporate interests.
Bringing in a Watergate figure like Dean is likely to rile Trump, who has called him a "rat". The administration said they don't have the legal right to turn over documents from their time working for Trump.
