I asked Pelosi today if she's concerned about blowback for Democrats in Trump districts, and she said: "This has nothing to do with politics. ... It's about the president not honoring his oath of his office." "So no, I'm not concerned."

New - Dems have taken a series of steps in recent days to suggest Mueller evidence likely to be part of articles of impeachment. Talks still fluid but Judiciary’s carefully planned hearings bring Mueller to the fore - for a reason. w/ @jeremyherb ⁩

I asked Kevin McCarthy if it's ever OK for a president to ask a foreign power to investigate a political rival, and he dodged the question. Instead, he focusing on the 2016 probe and later said: "The answer to your question: They've always wanted to impeach the President."

Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson, the other Democrat who also opposed the inquiry, said this when I asked if he'd vote to impeach: "I don't have an idea what they're doing." And he walked on the floor.

John Kelly on whether Trump has read the Schiff memo. “No, no. It is quite lengthy.” We are told it’s 10 pages.

Pelosi just reiterated this now, and said: "No" when asked if Omar would be removed from committees as GOP is demanding. "A newcomer member of Congress has apologized for her remarks. It took them what, 13 years to notice Steve King?"

Democrat Tom Malinowski earlier today, describing the scene in the SCIF: "A bunch of Freedom Caucus members having pizza around the conference table -- pretending to be brave."
