Quotes from the news wire:
This is unprecedented. If allowed to go unchecked, this obstruction means the end of congressional oversight. As a co-equal branch of government, we should not and can not allow this to continue, democrats are angry. They are angry our nation's chief law enforcement officer and his deputy had the audacity to decide the evidence didn't support charges for obstructing an investigation into something The President didn't do.
The Department's decision reflects President Trump's blanket defiance of Congress's constitutionally mandated duties, in the coming days, I expect that Congress will have no choice but to confront the behavior of this lawless Administration. The Committee will also take a hard look at the officials who are enabling this cover up.
The President says The President doesn't want people talking about certain things, but they have already talked about those things to Mueller and to others. So that means if there was any executive privilege it's been waived, you can not waive the privilege and then reassert it, so there is no legal excuse whatsoever... The only question is how long they will draw it out in court before the subpoena is followed, and how contemptuous of Congress this administration will be.
I suspect that President Trump and his attorneys know this to be true as a matter of law -- and that this evening's reports, if accurate, represent one more act of obstruction by an administration desperate to prevent the public from talking about the President's behavior, the Committee's subpoena stands. I look forward to Mr. McGahn's testimony.
Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, The Attorney General has taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller's nearly two year investigation, the central concern here is that Attorney General Barr is not allowing the facts of the Mueller report to speak for themselves but is trying to bake in the narrative about the report to the benefit of the White House.
I am very concerned that it is apparent that the Department (of Justice) will not meet the April 2 deadline that we set. And I'm very disturbed by that, i asked whether he could commit that the full report, an unredacted full report with the underlying documents evidence would be provided to Congress and to the American people. And he wouldn't make a commitment to that. I am very concerned about that.
For the President to go around Congress and say 'you don't agree there's an emergency, I think there's an emergency, we're going to spend the money that you said no you won't spend' is upending democratic government, is making the President a dictator, and that's a far greater risk to our government and to our freedom than almost anything else that's going on.
