Judge allows lawsuit against Trump over earnings to move on

Trump's businesses may complicate his presidency

The House Judiciary Committee, under the control of Democrats, also subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify, something that the White House has suggested it will not allow him to do, citing executive privilege. Democrats, however, have seized on numerous details in the report, raising alarms about Trump's conduct and vowing to continue their own probes of Russian interference and other matters related to the president, including his finances.

Other Democratic leaders have fallen in line with Pelosi.

"He said Monday that the criticism" reads like political talking points than a reasoned legal brief, and it comprises a litany of incorrect details".

Trump said last week he would fight all subpoenas issued by the committee to investigate his administration. The two sides met on the White House and described their dialogue in useful phrases. "I would say, it's done". Cohen pleaded guilty a year ago to lying to Congress at 2017.

He said that Mueller's lengthy report showed his team had "failed in their duty to act as prosecutors and only as prosecutors". It said the investigation "did not establish" proof of such collusion. The subpoenas seek access to past financial records for Trump. It says,"Democrats are now utilizing their new control of congressional committees to explore every facet of President Trump's private finances, companies, and even his family".

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler says if the attorney general doesn't provide the committee "with the information it demands and the respect that it deserves, Mr. Barr's moment of accountability will come soon enough".

Yet Mueller never secured an interview with Trump, who agreed only to answer limited written questions on selected topics. Flood also counters claims by Democrats that the Mueller report could be a road map to impeaching Trump.

Zdunek said a blood test can check for that, but it's often not covered by insurance and can cost more than $100. The virus can linger in the air for up to two hours, according to the Centers for Disease Contol and Prevention.

The White House has objected to McGahn's appearance.

On the other hand, Trump's behaviour may already be worrying Americans.

President Trump also called for an end to "costly and time consuming" partisan investigations into the White House.

Lanny Davis, Cohen's representative, connected the criticism to the continuing attempt of Trump to protect his taxes.

Republican strategist Karl Rove said the findings present problems for Democratic presidential candidates, who will be caught between primary voters clamoring for impeachment and general-election swing voters who are turned off by it.
