President Trump, reiterating his firm belief that Special Advisor Robert Mueller's investigation had been a political and unsuccessful hunt, tweeted the New York Post's cover page and its audacious and declarative title: "TRUMP CLEAN".
The page showed that Trump was smiling next to the phrases "No crime committed" and "A hoax destroyed".

The chair of the Judiciary Committee of the House, Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Has summoned the unedited Mueller report and requested that he testify before Congress.

He added that although Mueller's report did not reveal collusion "beyond reasonable doubt", it contained enough suspicious information to trigger alarm signals.

"I know people say that it's politically charged and that we should not go there, and that there are upcoming elections, but there are things that are more important than politics. "she said.
Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Also lobbied for a resolution to call on the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives to determine whether Trump had committed impenetrable offenses .
