House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement that he will "hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now" as the Justice Department pledged cooperation. Watch live in the player above.
Congressional Democrats on Monday struck a rare deal in their wide-ranging probes of President Donald Trump, with the U.S. Justice Department agreeing to hand over more evidence from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation inquiry. Nadler opened the hearing by citing Mueller as an authority on the supposed massive intervention of the Russian government in the 2016 election in favor of Trump-an unsubstantiated narrative that was fabricated by the U.S. intelligence agencies and has been the focus of the Democrats' demands for a more aggressive posture toward Russia as well as a harsher crackdown on oppositional views on the internet.
The Justice and Commerce Departments rejected a subpoena from the House Oversight and Reform Committee for documents and testimony relating to the census, and Trump ordered his former communications director Hope Hicks and McGahn's former top aide Annie Donaldson to refuse to testify or supply documents to the Judiciary Committee.
It would also empower committee chairs to authorize lawsuits without a vote from the full House in order to enforce subpoenas and compel testimony from current and former West Wing aides, as lawmakers dig into whether Trump obstructed justice, alleged mismanagement in the White House security clearance procedures, the president's finances and his administration's immigration policies. The president commented on the hearing as he recognized the victor of the Indy 500 race at the White House.
The Mueller report found that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russian operatives. "Democrats just want a do-over which they'll never get!"
White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, speaking to the same conference later Tuesday, expressed skepticism that Pelosi was "done" with Trump.

Oftentimes - more than 10,000 times , in fact - these things are provably false or misleading. The problem is that nobody has any idea what he's referring to.
A growing number of Democrats have called for launching an impeachment inquiry against Trump, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has continued to counsel a more deliberate course.
"It is nearly unheard of for the Justice Department to release raw evidence to another entity so that the Justice Department can be second guessed", he said.
"Don McGahn, voluntarily and with the president's approval, already met with Robert Mueller in a report that is now public and they are asking him to testify on issues he has already disclosed information on", Rossi said.
"Mr. Dean has made a cottage industry out of accusing presidents of acting like Richard Nixon".
In a second tweet on Monday, while Dean was testifying, Trump again said that Dean is a disgrace.
Dean told the panel there were parallels between Mueller's investigative report, released in redacted form in mid-April, and a 1974 document, known as the Watergate Road Map, in which a special prosecutor laid out the case against Nixon.
