2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President:
"Reporter: There is going to be a vote in the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow whether or not to authorize subpoenas to demand an unredacted version of the Mueller report and all of the background materials. If they do vote out the authority for subpoenas will the White House fight that?
Well, I think it's ridiculous. We went through two years of the Mueller investigation. We have, I mean, not only that you read the wording that was proven ... who could go through that and get wording where it was no collusion, no nothing. So there's no collusion. The attorney general now and the deputy attorney general ruled no obstruction. They said no obstruction and so there's no collusion, there's no obstruction and now we're going to start this process all over again? I think it's a disgrace. These are just Democrats that want to try and demean this country and it shouldn't be allowed. And I'll totally live by what the attorney general ... I have great respect for the attorney general. I'll live by what he said but I will tell you this, nothing you give them, whether it's shifty Schiff (House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff) or (House Judiciary Chairman) Jerry Nadler, who I've known he's been fighting me for half of my life in Manhattan and I was very successful, thank you. But Nadler's been fighting me for years and years in Manhattan. Not successfully I will tell you anything we give them will never be enough."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President:
"This has been a very, very bad thing for our country. The question was asked before about Russia, about Germany, about all of the different things that you and I discussed so often. There's been a very bad thing for the United States. It's been a total waste of time. But what has it been a waste of time is some very bad people started something that should have never been started. And I hope that's going to continue forward, because people did things that were very, very bad for our country and very, very illegal. And you could even say treasonous. OK, thank you very much everybody. "
The House Judiciary Committee is expected to prepare subpoenas this week seeking special counsel Robert Mueller's full Russia report as the Justice Department appears likely to miss an April 2 deadline set by Democrats for the report's release.
The Judiciary panel plans to vote on subpoenas Wednesday, a day after the deadline.
The chairmen of several House committees asked for the full report last week after Attorney General William Barr released a four-page summary laying out the report's principal conclusions.
Barr said in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees on Friday that a redacted version of the full 300 page report would be released by mid-April, if not sooner.
At the White House, President Donald Trump said the prospect of subpoenas were "ridiculous," but that he would abide by Barr's decision on the matter.
"I think it's a disgrace," Trump said. "These are just Democrats that want to try and demean this country and it shouldn't be allowed."
The planned committee vote, announced Monday morning, would not automatically issue subpoenas but authorize House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., to send them.
The panel will also vote to authorize subpoenas related to a number of President Donald Trump's former top advisers, including strategist Steve Bannon, Communications Director Hope Hicks, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, White House Counsel Donald McGahn and counsel Ann Donaldson. Donaldson served as McGahn's chief of staff before both left the administration.
The five were probably key witnesses in Mueller's probe of possible obstruction of justice.
