"He obstructed justice and hired an attorney general to clean up the crime scene", Harris said.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats she wants to see President Donald Trump "in prison" as she engaged in a dispute with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting about whether to start impeachment proceedings. In fact, Democrats have been calling for Mueller to testify about the Russian Federation probe; Mueller has resisted those calls.
He also said the special counsel's insistence that he didn't find Trump not guilty "is not the standard we use at the department".
Trump nicknamed Pelosi "Nervous Nancy" seemingly for the first time on Thursday.
"Nancy Pelosi is a disaster, okay?"
It's unclear what Trump meant, since Mueller hasn't testified about his lengthy special counsel probe - and said last week that he wouldn't offer any testimony that expands on the final report he delivered in March to Attorney General Bill Barr.

Barr previously testified to the Senate that Mueller had told him that he did not conclude that Trump had committed a crime and that he would have been charged if not for the Justice Department policy regarding indicting sitting presidents.
"I was there in the Clinton administration when we went through that fiasco and it hurt the Republicans because the American people don't want you playing politics with their tax dollars and their lives", he said.
Mueller's 22-month investigation was unable to establish a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia despite finding significant contacts between Trump associates and Russians.
Nadler, Raskin and other lawmakers say opening an inquiry doesn't necessarily result in impeachment and would strengthen their legal case as Democrats pursue Trump in court in an effort to force him to comply with their investigations.
Trump has repeatedly called the Mueller investigation a "witch-hunt" and since its conclusion has called on politicians to "move on".
'We are investigating all of the things we would investigate, frankly, in an impeachment inquiry, ' Nadler said.
I've been around the people of our area for more than 50 years - much of that time in public life.
However, neither Fox nor Trump took into consideration the symbolism of the U.S. head of state sitting before the final resting place of over 9,000 USA war dead and frankly discussing the political turmoil back in Washington.
