Nixon-era White House counsel John Dean ahead of his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Monday said he believes there are "too many" comparisons that are "too similar" between President Donald Trump and late President Richard Nixon, but one that stands out is their "hands-on" approach to the office.

Just last week, Nadler refused to back-down from his renewed calls for more investigations into the Trump administration; asserting Mueller's report had evidence of "multiple crimes".

During an event honoring the victor of the Indy 500 at the White House Monday, President Donald Trump reacted to this afternoon's House testimony from former Nixon White House counsel John Dean.

In response to the agreement, Nadler said the panel will not vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in criminal contempt, for now.

"It is critical that Congress is able to obtain the information we need to do our jobs", he said in a statement.

'The Justice Department has yet again offered accommodations to House Democrats, and I am glad Chairman Nadler - for the first time in months - has finally met them at the negotiating table, ' Collins, a Georgia Republican, said.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerold Nadler said the documents would allow his committee members to perform their 'constitutional duties.' He said it would 'hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance'.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler looks through papers as he chairs a House Judiciary Committee hearing entitled "Lessons from the Mueller Report" on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S., June 10, 2019. What we don't know yet is how much information Democrats will actually obtain through the kind of disclosures the Justice Department is now making.

The House Judiciary Committee also voted on May 8 to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for not giving the committee special counsel Robert Mueller's full, unredacted report. But the House is still expected to vote on a resolution Tuesday that would empower the committee to file a civil lawsuit for the materials, if Democrats decide to do so. McGahn is the key player in a few central episodes described in Volume II of Mueller's report, including a request by Trump that McGahn remove Mueller and then later, a request by Trump that McGahn falsify evidence denying the earlier request took place.

Nadler noted that Tuesday's vote included language authorizing court action against McGahn, in addition to Barr.

'All members of the Judiciary Committee - Democrats and Republicans alike - will be able to view them, ' he said.

In tweets, Trump also took aim at House Democrats for continuing to focus on the report by Mueller that details findings of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election as well as possible episodes of obstruction of the probe by Trump.
