House Democrats to get more Mueller evidence

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

JERRY NADLER, (D) NEW YORK, SAYING: "I am pleased that we have reached an agreement to review at least some of the evidence underlying the Mueller report." After a long and bitter standoff, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and the Justice Department reached a deal Monday, giving members of Congress access to key evidence from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

JERRY NADLER, (D) NEW YORK, SAYING: "This material will be made available without delay to members of the committee on both sides of the aisle." Nadler said the DOJ will give the panel underlying documents on whether President Donald Trump had obstructed justice in the course of Mueller's probe.

The agreement delays for now the Democrats' planned vote on whether to find Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, after he defied their subpoena to hand over that evidence along with an unredacted copy of the report.

The news came hours before Nadler's committee held a hearing featuring John Dean, the former aide whose testimony during the Watergate scandal helped topple former President Richard Nixon.

Dean told the committee he saw numerous parallels between Mueller's report and Watergate.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOHN DEAN, FORMER AIDE TO RICHARD NIXON, SAYING: "Special Counsel Mueller has provided this committee with a roadmap.

(WHITE FLASH) I think there is evidence incidentally in the report of collusion." Republicans heaped scorn on the hearing.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REP.

DOUG COLLINS, (R) GEORGIA, SAYING: "This committee is now hearing from the 70s and they want their star witness back." (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "John's been a loser for a long time.

We know that.

I think he was disbarred and he went to prison.

Other than that, he's doing a great job." Monday's hearing reflects one front in a broad battle between Trump and Congressional Democrats, who are investigating his policies, conduct in office and business dealings.

Democrats remain sharply divided on whether to launch impeachment proceedings against the president.

Some are pushing to begin the process now.

But others, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are urging caution with an eye on polls showing Americans do not strongly favor impeachment.
