Democrats in the House flexing oversight power against President Trump announcing new hearings on the Mueller report and a new, separate vote to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress.

President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen told lawmakers behind closed doors that Jay Sekulow, one of the president’s attorneys, encouraged him to give untrue information to lawmakers about the Trump Tower project in Moscow, according to transcripts released Monday.
