Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, an outspoken supporter of congressional action, on the side of pursuing impeachment hearings.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been skeptical of impeachment, did not embrace the growing chorus from within Democrats' ranks. "I am a principled constitutional conservative who has stayed consistent regardless of whether we have President Obama in office, or President Trump".

But Mueller's comments will make the chore that much more hard.

Many Democrats interpreted his words as a coded appeal for Congress to escalate the matter.

"I think it's really important that we do our job as a Congress, that we do not allow misconduct to go undeterred, that we not just say someone can violate the public trust and that there are no consequences to it", Amash said. Kamala Harris, a former prosecutor, said in SC. The case is closed!

Mueller's own observation tramples Trump's justification that he has not been indicted.

Price was making his second start since coming off the injured list on May 20, which is why there was concern. While Price was frustrated, Cora preferred to take out his star pitcher instead of risking injury.

Check out the following video from last night's PBS NewsHour, in which Rep. Gerry Connolly had some fascinating things to say about the Mueller comments yesterday, impeachment, etc.

Shortly after, Amash took to Twitter to once again double down on his calls for impeachment.

Mueller pointed back to the report repeatedly - and drew a line between what he saw as his authority and that of Congress.

But Pamela Medford-Conley of Cedar Springs said she read Mueller's report and agreed with Amash's assessment.

"The ball is in our court, Congress", Amash said in response to Mueller's contention that his office could not charge a sitting president with a crime.

"I think Mueller is a true 'never Trumper, '" Trump said. "Congress has a duty to keep the president in check". "Not to mention what we have seen from the current attorney general of the United States, who I questioned in connection with the judiciary committee, who clearly thinks his job is to represent the president and his peculiar interests, as opposed to representing the people of the country in which we live". Kamala Harris of California, and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, for example, called Mueller's statement an "impeachment referral". "I fully expect the responsible House committees to expedite their investigations and, as soon as possible, formally draft articles of impeachment".

Others in the broad field of 23 have been more direct - and sharpened their messages after Mueller spoke. Mueller's report did not establish a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to sway the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in Trump's favor. "Now it's time to do ours", Moulton tweeted.
