Upending the law could prove politically unsafe for the Trump administration and Republicans who are backing the law's repeal.
Democratic National Committee Tom Perez said Tuesday the filing moves Republicans "one step closer to throwing the financial security and peace of mind of millions - not to mention one of the largest sectors of our economy - into a tailspin". "It's pure political cruelty", said Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, who is fighting the legal challenge to the ACA at the court of appeals. Mueller's investigation also exonerated the president from claims that he had colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.
But with Trump's appointment of a pair of conservatives, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, it was unclear how the high court would rule or if it would even take the case should it have the chance.
"I think it's very very important that the American people get transparency", Comey told the audience, calling for a full release of the report, according to The Charlotte Observer. Graham said Trump was unlikely to claim executive privilege on any of the material.
The Department of Justice cleared President Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice over the weekend - but many voters are not convinced of the Republican's innocence.
Emboldened by the end of the investigation, Trump on Tuesday strode into a high-spirited gathering of Senate Republicans, flanked by party leaders, saying the attorney general's summary of Mueller's report "could not have been better". In other words, a return to the pre-Obamacare status quo could put the health care of roughly 2 million children at risk. It's arguing that the law is unconstitutional because Congress repealed fines on people who remain uninsured. Pelosi has accused the Trump administration of jeopardizing the health care of millions with its attempt to scrap Obamacare through the courts.
There are the ones who are eager to move on and forget Russiagate ever happened (no need to reflect on the role journalists played in hyping the conspiracy) - and there are those who are doubling down. Many Democrats dismiss Barr's four-page summary as inadequate.
One attorney told Law&Crime that it was "odd" that Mueller would submit his report before the Stone prosecution was over and "perplexing" that he would do so while the grand jury subpoena was still being resisted. No wonder Trump was quoted this week as telling GOP senators of Barr, "I love this guy". "And I'm not going to base anything on the Barr report", said Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland. "And at a closed-door lunch with Senate Republicans, Trump reportedly told the lawmakers that people love it when you attack the press".
If the House approves, what information would be released?"The Russians gave help and the president made full use of that help".
Pelosi's advice to Democrats to stick with the strategy that won them control of the House in 2018 was reinforced by Obama himself, who counseled freshman Democrats at a reception Monday night.
"They truly are the Enemy of the People and the Real Opposition Party!" "The same can not be said for millions of Independents and moderate Democrats who are not heavily invested in the Democratic Party".
