Robert Mueller after two years of probe on the Russian interference in the U.S. election released a complete report in April. In his report, Mueller didn’t conclude whether President Trump committed a crime, but said that his report “also does not exonerate him.” Indeed he did not close the file and the case could re-open any time. Now U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has claimed that Mueller during his testimony to the Congressional panels on July 21 pointed to some important evidences about Trump’s offences and according to those evidences, the proceedings for impeachment of the President may be resumed again. Fox News in a report pointed to Muller’s final report, claiming the former special counsel has revealed evidences which show Trump has committed impeachable offences.

Despite those evidences, Nadler avoided implicit support for impeachment of Trump. But House Judiciary Committee Chairman has defended privately the proceedings for impeachment of Trump. Days before Mueller’s testimony in the Congress, Nadler had called for Trump’s impeachment. The Hill news website has claimed 87 Democrat Congressmen are currently supporting the impeachment while before Mueller’s testimony in the Congress, the number of pro-impeachment Democrat Congressmen was 95 and 332 were against it.
Mueller showed up in the Congress and testified in the Judiciary Committee for three hours and later in the Intelligence Committee for two hours and defended his 448-page investigation report on all accusations and offences.
Hours before the testimony of Mueller in the Congress, Associated Press quoted both sides as saying that the testimony is crucial for changing the public opinion on the issue of accountability of the U.S. President.
Democrat Congressmen in the Judiciary Committee are still determined to work on some limited points which have been mentioned in the report in order to show the American people the most questionable behaviors of the U.S. President, and they hinted at Trump’s efforts to create obstacles in way of administering the justice.
Some points are like Trump’s order to the White House Counsel for U.S. President Mr. Donald McGahn to oust Mueller and later Trump ordered McGahn to deny all those incidents.
Democrats will also focus on some secret meetings between Trump and his manager of 2016 presidential campaign Mr. Corey Lewandowski, claiming Trump had also directed Lewandowski to convince the then Attorney General Jeff Sessions to restrict Mueller’s probe.
All those measures are taken by the Democrats for probable impeachment of Trump while this year the U.S. economy has grown logically comparing to the same period in the preceding year and Trump has had better approval rating in recent polls.
