Robert Mueller 'is going to testify': Rep. Adam Schiff

Harris' comments came after some Democrats in Congress invoked the term over refusals from the Trump administration to accept demands for testimony and documents, including the full version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report. Mr. McGahn also didn't view his personal opinion as relevant, because Attorney General William Barr had already said he didn't believe the evidence in Mr. Mueller's report amounted to obstruction of justice, the people said.

Then-White House counsel Donald McGahn at a White House Cabinet meeting on June 21, 2018. A source familiar with the matter told CBS News that White House lawyer Emmet Flood made the request, which McGahn did not comply with. "We did not perceive it as any kind of threat or something sinister", Burck said in a statement.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone says the man who formerly held his position does not have the legal rights to the documents Democrats in Congress are demanding he produce.

Rep. Adam Schiff on Sunday predicted special counsel Robert Mueller will testify before Congress about his Russian Federation investigation as Democrats and the White House square off over subpoenas. "It was a request, professionally and cordially made".

Trump advises companies produce goods 'in good old' US to avoid tariffs
The latest US increase might hit American consumers harder, said Jake Parker, vice-president of the US-China Business Council. The interview came less than a day after the Trump administration hiked tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

Barr released his public letter purportedly summarizing the Mueller report on March 24, leading many to conclude that Mueller had found no wrongdoing on Trump's part. The report also revealed that Trump told aides he believed McGahn had leaked to the news media to make himself look good.

The Mueller report details numerous instances in which Trump potentially committed obstruction of justice, though Mueller did not reach a conclusion on the question.

While giving an interview on ABC's "This Week," Paul - the junior senator from Kentucky who sits on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs - torched Schiff as a "hypocrite" for his criticism of Trump's use of "executive privilege" after he was "all for" Obama using it.

Paul went on to say that he thinks "most Americans would disagree", with the hundreds of federal prosecutors who say that President Donald Trump would be prosecuted if he weren't president. In several cases, the special counsel wrote, there was substantial evidence that the president sought to obstruct the probe, including in his interactions with McGahn. But Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have cleared the president.
