Chris Truax, a Republicans for the Rule of Law legal adviser and spokesperson, said the ad, which encourages GOP members to take Trump's obstruction allegations "seriously," serves as "a reminder of what patriotism and political bravery can look like."
Several members of President Donald Trump's staff came straight from stints on cable news.
The Judiciary Committee says it's reached a long sought-after deal with the Justice Department to begin receiving underlying evidence from the Mueller report.
"I had the thought that my arrival this time felt a little bit, I think, like jumping into Sainte-Mère-Église," he said.
The hearing comes as House Democrats are trying to highlight key portions of the Mueller report to the public.
Rudy Giuliani is President Donald Trump's personal lawyer in his defense against the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
"The roadblocks were put there by the president of the United States," former judge Andrew Napolitano said. "The roadblocks are called obstruction of justice."
"This will help us to continue to get the information out in front of the people about what exactly has happened," Representative Pramila Jayapal told Newsweek.
"Are they trying to lose?" ex-White House ethics chief Richard Painter said of Democrats and the 2020 election.
"Mueller, I'd imagine, at the behest of the left gives them what they need to jumpstart the calls for impeachment," Jeanine Pirro said. "You either indict or you don't… every prosecutor knows if you don't indict someone, you stop there."
"If someone appointed me a private investigator and said 'well, you've got to come to two conclusions' and I investigate and I come to one, but I say 'gee, I can't figure out the second one' and they pay me $35 million, I think I have to probably give them about $17 million back."
The nation's top law enforcement official and his DOJ legal team determined the president did not violate the law, going a step further in an interview to say that much of Mueller's legal analysis "did not reflect the views of the department."
In addition to the false claims, the president contradicted himself after publicly acknowledging—for the first time—in a tweet that "Russia help[ed] me to get elected."
"I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected," Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday.
"There's absolutely no doubt that the Russians were interfering with the election for the purpose of helping the Trump campaign," Andrew McCabe said.
Not only did those who already support impeachment proceedings view Mueller's statement as a call to action, more Democrats piled on, saying it was now time to initiate the significant measure of an impeachment inquiry.
"It's a can of worms, it's a new headache that the president doesn't need, it advances the law into Congress' court," Andrew Napolitano said.
President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani lashed out at special counsel Robert Mueller following his statement at the Justice Department reiterating his report's findings.
The actor, who plays special counsel Robert Mueller in "Saturday Night Live" sketches, called on the prosecutor to speak publicly to Congress about his report.
Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson all lashed out at Robert Mueller during their respective Fox News shows on Wednesday after the special counsel spoke publicly for the first time since starting the Russia probe in 2017.
"Republicans should be appalled at their casual disregard for the law, the Constitution and everything that makes America great," Chris Truax, a legal adviser for Republicans for the Rule of Law, said.
"These facts that he laid out are so substantially similar to the matured allegations against Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon, it's clear where he was going," Andrew Napolitano explained.
"Mr. Mueller told us a lot of what we need to hear today," the chairman said when prompted whether he would subpoena the special counsel.
"It was not anywhere as clear cut as Attorney General Bill Barr [characterized the report]," the political anchor said. "In fact, it was almost exactly the opposite, not clear cut."
"As I said forth in the report after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so," Mueller said during brief remarks at the Justice Department.
"The Special Counsel's Office is part of the Department of Justice and by regulation, it was bound by that department policy," Mueller told reporters at the Justice Department.
"Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented key aspects of Mueller's report and decisions in the investigation, which has helped further the president's false narrative," Representative Justin Amash wrote on Twitter.
Robert Mueller is a "man of great rectitude and apolitical, and he doesn't want to participate in anything that he might regard as a political spectacle," Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said.
Former federal prosecutor Jack Weiss compared Michael Flynn's voicemail recording to Trump's "Access Hollywood" tape in 2016. "If we get a live tape, I think it'll be a big deal," he said.
