MUELLER REPORT FALLOUT:
- DEMS DIVIDED ON COLLUSION, SEEKING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT: Leading Democrats appeared divided whether to pursue impeachment against President Trump after last week’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report, which found no evidence of collusion and did not draw a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice … Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., chair of the House Oversight Committee, signaled that Democrats are not yet concerned about the possibility of “Russia fatigue” and warned ominously on Sunday that “the Russians aren’t getting tired” and are “attacking our electoral system every single day.”
- Nancy Pelosi Plans Monday Meeting On Mueller Report: ‘Congress Will Not Be Silent.’ (Huffington Post) – The House speaker called the redacted report a “grave matter” and described its release as “disrespectfully late.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) organized a meeting with House Democrats scheduled after the Easter weekend to discuss what to do next in response to the release of Robert Mueller’s long-awaited redacted report. Pelosi asked for the conference call to take place on Monday in a letter to Democrats. In her letter, Pelosi described the special counsel’s findings as a “grave matter.” The speaker also said the nature in which the Justice Department released the findings was “disrespectfully late” and “selectively redacted.” “The Caucus is scheduling a conference call for Monday to discuss this grave matter, which is as soon as our analysis and this Holy Season’s religious traditions allow,” Pelosi said. “Congress will not be silent,” she concluded.
- President Trump stepped up his attacks against special counsel Robert Mueller over the weekend, claiming Mueller’s recently released report “was written as nastily as possible” by “true Trump Haters.” In a string of early morning tweets on Saturday, Trump lashed out at Mueller, calling him “highly conflicted” and once again declared the special counsel’s investigation ”the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. political history.” On Sunday, the President tweeted that the Mueller report was “a hit job.” Trump added in a separate tweet that Democrats’ investigations into him and his administration would cost them in the 2020 election.

This should never happen again!
- DEM CALLS FOR IMPEACHMENT: Days after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference, top Democrats are making it clear they’re open to pursuing impeachment against President Trump even if the effort is likely to be unsuccessful. Three Democratic committee chairmen discussed the possibility on Sunday political talk shows, emphasizing that a decision won’t be made overnight. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to hold a private conference call Monday with fellow Democrats and the potential impeachment of President Trump will be raised. Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee warns Democrats it would be a political mistake to try to remove the President from office.
