Post-Mueller report, journalists rethink handling of Romney's 2012 Russian Federation prediction

Democrats subpoena Mueller report amid calls for impeachment

A cardboard cutout of US Attorney General William Barr is seen as protesters hold signs which read "Barr Coverup", following the release of the Mueller report on President Donald Trump, at the White House in Washington, US.

Democrats renewed consideration of impeaching President Donald Trump after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, with leading progressives and some presidential candidates calling for swift action - as Democratic leaders cautioned restraint.

As Senate Democrats begin to call for Trump's impeachment based on Mueller's evidence, Romney is one of the first Republican senators to sharply rebuke the actions outlined in the report.

Mueller wrote that "w$3 ith respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has the authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice".

The congressional democrats expressed that although the current proposal was not accepted, they are open to discussions with the department to find a reasonable solution that allows them to view the full report while protecting sensitive information. She knocked off a Republican incumbent previous year in a district that favored Trump by more than 6 percentage points in 2016.

And, well, the report did reveal that an very bad lot of them had to steer Trump away from multiple attempts to meddle with Mueller's probe. "The report raises more questions and concerns that we believe the American people deserve answers to". Democrats vowed to continue pursuing the report's findings, with some prominent members of the party, like Sen.

Huckabee quote tweeted Romney's statement about the report, saying he wasn't as distressed by Romney's treatment of Trump as he was that Romney could have been a Republican president.

Rep. Tom Reed, R-New York, a moderate who frequently votes with Democrats, said Mueller's conclusions "should be celebrated".

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of NY, is now signed on to an impeachment resolution from fellow Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, of MI, bringing new energy to the effort. But in a reflection of the difficulty of the strategic choice facing Democrats, she also said they should avoid making it a top campaign issue.

The report also identified 10 possible incidences of potential obstruction of justice involving Trump - including a 2017 attempt to fire Mueller - stating that there had been "multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations".

As a result, Mueller said he could "not exonerate" him.

Still, he said Mueller's findings would create the background "mood music" when Democrats talk in broad terms about corruption and government accountability.
