"The Democrats vigorously tried to revive the badly and irrevocably tainted Witch Hunt Hoax until" Mueller & # 39; s testimony for two House commissions on Wednesday, the President tweeted on Saturday.

& # 39; The truth is that he had no facts on his side, & # 39; tweeted Trump.

"Nothing he could do!"

Trump warmly declared the victory, although Mueller, the former special counselor who had investigated the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, stressed on Wednesday that he had not acquitted Trump from obstruction of justice, as the president claimed.

The long-awaited Mueller Congress has contributed little to the ambition of democratic accusations.

In seven hours of congress testimonies, Mueller accused Trump of not always being truthful, he mentioned his support for the 2016 release of stolen Democratic emails & # 39; problematic & # 39; and said that Russia would try to intervene again in the US elections in 2020.

"They do it while we're sitting here. And they expect to do it in our next election, "Mueller told lawmakers in back-to-back hearings about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election to boost Republican Trump's candidacy.

Despite Mueller's assertion that Trump could be charged after leaving office, the president was triumphant following the apparitions of the former FBI director before the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives judicial and intelligence committees.

"This was a very big day for the Republican Party. And you could say this was a great day for me, but I don't even like to say that, & "Trump said after Mueller's lengthy and sometimes stopping testimony in which he sometimes couldn't hear questions and had to correct at least one answer .

During a day full of political theater, Mueller, 74, he first answered questions about his research, in which Democrats and Republicans took up well-known positions in a time of deep American partisans.

The hearings broadcast on the marathon apparently did not seem to be Democrats controlling the House closer to starting the trial of trying to remove the president, even if he is looking for re-election in 2020.

Mueller, for his part, refused to discuss the "deposition problem."

Meanwhile, on Friday, the House Judiciary Committee asked a federal court for access to grand jury evidence from the Mueller probe that lawmakers say they should decide whether to initiate an adjudication against Trump.

Democratic attorneys of the House of Representatives filed a 53-page petition with the US court to request approval for evidence regarding interactions between Trump campaign officials and Russian agents, and Trump's alleged efforts to formerly include White House Council Don McGahn to lead Mueller removal.

The action brought the House a step closer to deposition, a politically controversial issue that has divided the Democrats while Congress is preparing to turn to the 2020 election season.

"We just announced that we are actively considering deposition articles … that is as serious a step as we need to take now," a lawyer for the commission told reporters during a background briefing after the submission.

A separate committee case is expected early next week to force McGahn to testify before the panel will also raise the need for a decision on charges, although McGahn could avoid legal action by agreeing to appear as a result of negotiations, assistants said.

The evidence from the grand jury, which is protected by federal law against external control, was gathered by Mueller & # 39; s 22-month investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election and Trump's efforts to obstruct the investigation.

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, chairman Jerrold Nadler, told a press conference that, since the policy of the Ministry of Justice prohibits prosecution of a sitting president, the House of Representatives is the only government institution able to hold Trump responsible for actions described in the Mueller report.

"The House must have access to all relevant facts and consider whether it wants to exercise its full powers … including constitutional power of the utmost seriousness: recommendation of articles of deposition," said Nadler, reading the court's petition.

The committee backs up claims that Congress needs a formal investigation into accusation to justify access to evidence from the grand jury.

To reinforce the argument, Democratic lawmakers at the Nadler press conference described their ongoing obstruction of justice against Trump as a & # 39; accusation investigation & # 39 ;.

But the best Republican on the Judicial Committee, representative Doug Collins, criticized Nadler's move.

"Democratic judiciary complains about grand jury material to which they are not entitled," he said in a statement.

"President Nadler's legal action here will certainly fail, weakening Congress' ability to monitor now and in the future."

Nadler described legal action, including the ongoing McGahn lawsuit, as a potential turning point that could dismantle recent White House tactics driving current and former Trump assistants to defy summonses and refrain from witnessing.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi, who for the time being abandons as a politically risky move, told reporters that she preferred a lawsuit for & # 39; the best, strongest possible case & # 39; against Trump.

But now that the season of the election campaign in 2020 was rapidly approaching, she also made it clear that the issue of accusation would not linger.

"The decision is made on time. This is not endless, "Pelosi, while denying suggestions that she was trying to" walk the clock "on charges.

Mueller found insufficient evidence to claim that the Trump campaign conspired with Moscow in his attempt to help Trump choose in 2016, although campaign officials met with Russians.

He also did not come to the conclusion that Trump was trying to obstruct Mueller's investigation.

But Democrats say that a testimony from McGahn could give them the evidence they need for an investigation into allegations.

A star witness in the 448-page Mueller report released in April, McGahn told Mueller that Trump ordered him to remove the special counsel and then deny that he was instructed to do so. to do.

McGahn refused to testify earlier this year.
