Michigan Democratic Deputy Chief Whip Dan Kildee said Monday that his party was “agonizing” over what to do about President Donald Trump after the Mueller report revealed “frightening” corruption, chaos, and incompetence in the White House.
“I have been really disturbed by what I’ve read in the Mueller report, particularly the interactions between the president and his counsel, Don McGahn,” Kildee said.
“We’re going to have to make a hard call on this,” he continued. “The easy ones are where we know there will be blowback, but there’s no question about what we should do.”
“I’ve got to tell you, this is one we’re going to agonize over,” Kildee said of the choice to impeach or censure Trump. “The look that we’ve had into this presidency through this report is frightening.”

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.
"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) revealed on Monday that she told President Donald Trump that he is "scaring children" with his family separation policy at the border.

"You're scaring the children," Pelosi repeated. "Now we have to continue to keep that pressure on [the president] to remove all doubt that we in our country respect people for their dignity and worth."
