Transcript for Will Trump be impeached?
Now, to president trump what he's now saying about impeachment. And speaker Nancy Pelosi, what she told members of congress just a short time ago. And tonight, the newest subpoena now revealed who they now want to testify before the American people. Here's ABC's chief white house correspondent Jonathan Karl. Reporter: President trump today flatly rejected a central theme of the Mueller report, that time and time again, his own top advisers refused to do what he asked. Are you worried that your staff ignored your orders, as the Mueller report portrays? Nobody disobeys my orders. Reporter: But the Mueller report documents multiple cases, chief among them, white house counsel don mcgahn, who repeatedly rebuffed the president's drek tovs to have Robert Mueller fired. And tonight, mcgahn has been subpoenaed to appear before the house judiciary committee. But he's just one of several aides who told Mueller under oath that they didn't follow the president's orders, leading the special counsel to write, "The president's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is large by because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests." Democrats tonight are weighing a major decision -- to start the impeachment process or not? In a letter to members of the house, speaker Nancy Pelosi suggests impeachment may not be necessary, writing, "We should proceed down a path of finding the truth." It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings." Regardless, the president says he's not concerned in the least. Are you worried about impeachment, Mr. President? Not even a little bit. Not even a little bit, he said there. Jon Karl live at the white house tonight. And Jon, tonight, house Democrats have issued that subpoena, as you reported, for don mcgahn. And moments ago, Nancy Pelosi holding a call with democratic lawmakers to discuss next steps amid, as we know, differing opinions among Democrats on impeachment proceedings. What are your sources telling you tonight? Reporter: David, I'm told it was an hour-long and spirited conference call. Several Democrats telling speaker of the house Pelosi that they think it is time to move forward with impeachment. Pelosi and her leadership team, for their part, said that they will aggressively investigate the president and his administration, but they are not ready to move forward with impeachment proceedings, at least not yet. David? All right, Jon Karl starting off the week for us. Jon, thank you.
