House Democrats, grasping for ways to bring the special counsel’s report to life, said on Monday that they would convene a series of hearings focused on Robert S. Mueller III’s findings, even if the special counsel himself would not be on the witness stand for now.

The first star witness, in fact, will come from another era and another presidential scandal: John W. Dean, President Richard M. Nixon’s White House counsel who told the Senate in June 1973 that the president had been directly involved in the Watergate cover-up.

The hearing, scheduled for June 10 with the House Judiciary Committee, is not exactly the showcase Democrats had hoped for, but it will allow lawmakers on the panel traditionally charged with carrying out impeachment proceedings to fully air Mr. Mueller’s findings for the first time.

So far, Democrats’ requests for testimony from key witnesses in the Mueller investigation have been blocked by the Trump administration, and Mr. Mueller himself has yet to agree to appear on Capitol Hill despite delivering a rare public statement last week.

“While the White House continues to cover up and stonewall, and to prevent the American people from knowing the truth, we will continue to move forward with our investigation,” Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, the committee’s chairman, said in a statement. “These hearings will allow us to examine the findings laid out in Mueller’s report so that we can work to protect the rule of law and protect future elections through consideration of legislative and other remedies.”

Even Trump’s favorite media outlet Fox News will be reporting on these hearings, so we can definitely expect some extremely angry tweets to start flying out right off the bat. 

Good thing I am fully stocked on popcorn.

    Rep. Jerry Nadler said that federal law makes clear that the documents they requested were “no longer covered by executive privilege, if they ever were.” “Nadler said that Hicks “has agreed to turn over some documents” connected to her time on the Trump campaign.”

    he author reports that special counsel Robert Mueller had prepared a draft indictment of Trump that was never issued.

    “I think Donald Trump spooked Robert Mueller,” Wolff suggested. “And Trump brags a lot about how long he’s been in — how many times he’s been in court. He’s basically been in litigation for 45 years.”

    “You have him — just parenthetically — you have him on the phone one night with the Robert Kraft, the Patriots’ owner who has been accused in Florida on a prostitution charge — soliciting prostitution charge. You have him on phone giving him legal advice, saying to Robert Kraft, I’m better at this than the lawyers,” O’Donnell noted.

    “Exactly and him saying to Robert Kraft you’re innocent even though they have tape of you being guilty, you’re innocent,”
