The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee expects Robert Mueller to be subpoenaed “way before” the end of the summer if he refuses to voluntarily testify before Congress.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) explained the timing during a Tuesday interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber on “The Beat.”
“Has Robert Mueller agreed to come in voluntarily?” Melber asked. “Is there a date by which he has not you would subpoena him?”
“We’re carrying on conversations with him. If we have to subpoena him, we will,” Nadler replied.
“Would that be by the end of the summer?” Melber asked.
“Oh, I would think way before,” Nadler said.
The host then attempted to pin it down further.
“By the end of June?” Melber asked.
“I’m not going to comment,” Nadler replied. “I don’t know.”
WATCH: Rosie O’Donnell takes a shot at Meghan McCain over her treatment of Joy Behar
Rosie O'Donnell took some shots at Meghan McCain for her recent behavior on "The View."
The former co-host left about two years before McCain joined the five-woman panel in October 2017, and O'Donnell said she should show more respect to the show's veterans, reported Hollywood Life.
“I do have some compassion for her," O'Donnell said, referring to the loss of her father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). "Although I wish she wouldn’t be mean to Joy Behar, who is like a living legend and who should be respected for no other reason than she’s the elder statesman in the room.”
Accelerating exoplanet discovery using chemical fingerprints of stars
Stars are born when huge clouds of dust and gas collapse in on themselves and ignite. These clouds are made up of raw elements, like oxygen and titanium, and each cloud has a unique composition that imprints on the star. And within the stellar afterbirth – from the material that didn’t find its way into the star – planets are formed.
Finding planets orbiting distant stars, or exoplanets, is difficult. There are tried and true methods that involve using large telescopes to detect these tiny objects. But I’ve developed a faster and more powerful strategy for planet hunting that is based on the chemistry of the star. I am a planetary astrophysicist. Admittedly, this is a title that I made up because I wanted something that actually described what I do. I study the elements within stars, their patterns, and how they are connected to planets.
Paul Krugman drops the hammer on the GOP’s growing ’embrace of cruelty’ under Trump
In a damning column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning columnist Paul Krugman called out Republican lawmakers for turning their backs on the needs of their constituents saying it is nothing less than incomprehensible cruelty.
Pointing to a Washington Post article on the desperate need for medical services for the poor in red-state Tennessee, Krugman said that Americans in rural communities that voted heavily for Donald Trump are bearing the brunt of the GOP's desire to gut the Affordable Care Act.
