Jackson Lee continued: "So what does the president do?"

"Nadler is talking about law, Pelosi is talking about politics", Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a member of the Judiciary Committee, told Politico.

Trump has publicly acknowledged that presidents, by longstanding practice, strive to respect the Justice Department's autonomy in investigating and prosecuting people.

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, (r), throws his arms up in the air in frustration after a one-minute recess is called shortly before the hearing in the questioning of Corey Lewandowski ends, September 17, 2019.

"They make you look bad, they make Democrats, or maybe Democrats are making themselves look bad". "The majority made a promise and they couldn't keep it". "I think they hate this president more than they love their country", Lewandowski responded.

A hearing created to get answers on some serious allegations came and went with very little progress made.

The Guardian reported that the president instructed Lewandowski, who never worked for the White House, to not reveal private conversations with Trump beyond what is in the former special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

"The president was initially cheering Corey Lewandowski's opening statement and the way he started off this hearing which was obvious to everybody that he went in there looking for a fight, he was performing for the president", Los Angeles Times White House reporter Eli Stokols said.

The new pro-Lewandowski PAC listed Republican operative Cabell Hobbs as its treasurer, who is also treasures the John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton Super PAC. "The pattern of obstruction laid out in the Mueller report has not stopped". Republicans on the panel then forced a series of procedural votes, immediately sending the hearing into disarray.

Mr Lewandowski testified under oath on Tuesday before the House judiciary committee, which had issued him with a legal summons, known as a subpoena, to give evidence.

The hearing grew so heated that the panel's Democratic chairman, Jerry Nadler of NY, threatened to hold Lewandowski in contempt, saying later that the White House's effort to restrict Lewandowski's testimony was based on "crony privilege".

House Democrats spent their first week back on Capitol Hill after August recess embroiled in a debate over whether or not they were actually engaged in an impeachment inquiry and the subsequent implications.

He's expected to emphasize that information about his interviews with Mueller's investigators has been made public as well.

Lewandowski wasn't answering questions that aren't already answered in the Mueller report on election interference. Trump is working to broaden global support for ongoing efforts to protect religious freedom in the wake of increasing persecution of people on the basis of their beliefs and a growing number of attacks on and destruction of houses of worship by state and non-state actors, the White House official said.

In letters to the committee on Monday, the White House said that Dearborn and Porter were "absolutely immune" from testifying. In a tag-team effort, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a conservative backbencher and media hound, asked Lewandowski to describe the motives of his Democratic colleagues since House decorum rules restricted him from doing it himself. He instead chose to take his children on a beach vacation, because "that was more of a priority".

"Congressman, the White House has directed I not disclose the substance of any discussion with the president or his advisors to protect executive branch confidentiality", Lewandowski told Nadler.

According to the outlet, in a closed-door meeting last week, Pelosi criticized the committee's aides for advancing impeachment "far beyond" where the Democrat caucus stands. He added: "I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as everybody else".

"You are also proving our point for the American people to see", Nadler said, noting that one of the articles of impeachment drafted against President Richard Nixon involved obstruction. "I recognize this is not my privilege, but I am respecting the White House's decision". If approved by the chamber, the Republican-controlled Senate would be left to hold a trial and consider the president's ouster. Moderate Democrats have expressed nervousness that the impeachment push could crowd out their other accomplishments. Lewandowski asked. "I didn't hear it".
