After Mueller, Trump says he'll fight Dems on all fronts

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have remained cautious over launching impeachment proceedings against Trump ahead of the 2020 election, although they have left the door open to such action. "We just went through the Mueller witch hunt where you had 18 angry Democrats, that hate President Trump ... they hate him with a passion".

Democrats insist that Trump is engaged in wishful thinking in claiming exoneration.

"No Collusion, No Obstruction-there has NEVER been a President who has been more transparent".

Still, Trump and his aides have said Russia's 2016 interference was exaggerated. Mueller did not offer a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

"There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it's very partisan - obviously very partisan", Trump told Washington Post.

For months, Democrats have not made impeachment a premier issue in their pitch to voters. But if Trump blocks them from doing that, it would seem to force their hand and require an impeachment inquiry.

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request to elaborate on what the President would seek from the court. But it could also prove to be a major political distraction for a party looking to defeat Trump in next year's presidential election.

Even if the framers' arguments themselves weren't enough, the Supreme Court itself has also said in more recent years that impeachment is not part of its duties. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff asked on ABC's This Week on Sunday.

Another person said Nielsen took the issue up herself, convening classified meetings with agency heads and Cabinet secretaries, and cross-government strategy sessions with FBI, Justice Department and intelligence officials to chart a path forward on cybersecurity and election security.

Democrats hold a majority in the House and could impeach Trump on a simple majority vote.

Some argue that such a course isn't worth the high risk of public backlash, given that Republicans control the Senate - making removal from office unlikely.

The second front will be in campaign politics, and it might well be more fraught than the court battles to come.

Democrats remain divided on whether to proceed with Trump's impeachment after the Russian Federation inquiry.

Trump told reporters Monday he was "not even a little bit" anxious about Democratic impeachment efforts.

Joshua Matz, who co-wrote a good book on impeachment with law professor Laurence Tribe, told me that the House's oversight role already provides a strong basis for subpoenaing McGahn. He stopped short of recommending prosecution of Trump, saying in his report that pursuing criminal charges against the president is a matter for Congress.

"We're fighting all the subpoenas", the president added.

"The Mueller Report, despite being written by Angry Democrats and Trump Haters, and with unlimited money behind it ($35,000,000), didn't lay a glove on me". That's why I'm running to become president of the United States.
