    Washington (CNN) House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler on Sunday said Robert Mueller's report presents "very substantial evidence" that President Donald Trump is "guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors" -- an impeachable offense.

    "We have to ... let Mueller present those facts to the American people, and then see where we go from there, because the administration must be held accountable," Nadler, whose committee would lead impeachment proceedings, said on "Fox News Sunday."

    Mueller, the former special counsel for the Department of Justice and former director of the FBI, will testify before Congress on July 24 after House Democrats issued a subpoena for his appearance. Earlier this year, Mueller concluded a nearly two-year-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
    Democrats are deeply divided on whether to pursue an impeachment inquiry, and Mueller's public testimony may provide an opportunity for the party to unify and decide whether impeachment proceedings should go forward or not. More than 80 House Democrats have called for starting an impeachment inquiry into the President -- the first step in a lengthy process, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Nadler have so far resisted the pressure to open an inquiry. Behind the scenes, Nadler has lobbied Pelosi to open an inquiry.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday most Americans haven't read the dense 448-page Mueller report.

    Schiff said on CBS "Face The Nation" that the report contains "a pretty damning set of facts," and said, "Who better to bring them to life than the man who did the investigation himself."

    "We want the people to hear it directly from him," Schiff said.

    Mueller said in a rare and remarkable public statement in May his investigation could not clear Trump of obstruction of justice, and that charging the President was not an option his office could consider.

    "If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so," Mueller said. "We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime."

    The former special counsel's probe, which also investigated possible collusion, found that members of the Trump campaign knew they would benefit from Russia's illegal actions to influence the election, but did not take criminal steps to help.

    Mueller delivered a road map of how the investigation played out and the possible role that Congress could play in holding Trump accountable. He highlighted how the "Constitution requires a process other than" the criminal justice system to hold officeholders accountable, a clear signal his obstruction investigation into Trump could be carried on by Congress.

    The impeachment clause in Article II of the US Constitution outlines the process of removing a president, which begins with a vote in the House of Representatives. Offenses that could prompt impeachment are treason, bribery or other "high crimes and misdemeanors."

    Topline: A federal jury on Friday found Roger Stone guilty of lying to Congress and witness tampering in relation to his work on President Trump’s 2016 campaign, which means the longtime Republican operative joins the roster of former Trump associates who ran afoul of the law as a result of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.
    • Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer, was sentenced in December 2018 to three years of prison for lying to Congress, campaign finance violations and tax evasion, and separately received an additional two months of prison time for lying to Congress about a Moscow Trump Tower deal.
    • George Papadopoulos, a former Trump foreign policy advisor, was sentenced in September 2018 to 14 days in prison (with a year of supervised release) after pleading guilty to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with Russian intermediaries during the 2016 campaign; he filed in October to run for Katie Hill’s vacant California Congressional seat.
    • Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, was found guilty by a Virginia court of tax and bank fraud in August 2018, and in November 2018 voided his plea deal (by lying to investigators) in separate federal charges brought by Mueller; he’s currently serving a combined seven and a half years in prison from both cases.
    • Rick Gates, a former deputy to Manafort during the Trump campaign, pleaded guilty in February 2018 to charges of conspiracy against the United States and making false statements; despite a plea bargain, he faces between four to six years in prison, but his sentencing date has yet to happen⁠—partially because he testified against Stone.
    • Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security advisor, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI but nearly two years later has yet to be sentenced; his sentencing has been scheduled for early December, but could be upended by a new claim of innocence filed in federal court.

    What to watch for: Stone’s February 6 sentencing date. He could face a maximum penalty of 50 years in prison, based on his charges. But the Washington Post reported that Stone, as a first-time offender, will likely serve less time according to federal sentencing guidelines.

    Chief critic: Trump, who has long claimed the Russia investigation was a “hoax” and a “witch hunt.” He tweeted shortly after Stone’s sentencing asking if Hillary Clinton and James Comey were liars⁠—along with a list of former and current federal officials he’s also attacked⁠—and suggested a “double standard” was to blame.

    Surprising fact: Stone was the last person indicted by Mueller as part of the Russia investigation. He was arrested in a pre-dawn FBI raid at his Florida home on January 24.

    Big number: 34. That’s how many people Mueller ended up convicting or indicting.

    Key background: Stone worked for Trump’s campaign as an adviser. He officially left the campaign in 2015 but remained a consultant through its conclusion. Stone was accused of working to obtain emails that were hacked by Russia from a Democratic National Committee (DNC) server and released through Wikileaks. According to prosecutors, Stone contacted Trump just hours after the DNC said it was hacked by Russia. Stone’s political career began with a stint working for Richard Nixon, and he sports a tattoo of the late president on his back.

    Roger Stone is just the latest associate of U.S. President Donald Trump to face legal consequences. Stone, a longtime friend and ally of the president, was found guilty of witness tampering and lying to Congress about his pursuit of Russian-hacked emails damaging to Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid.
    But other former advisers of the president have also been found guilty of various charges, which have included lying to Congress or the FBI, bank and tax fraud, and failing to register as a foreign agent for lobbying purposes.

    Here's a roundup:


    Paul Manafort

    The former Trump campaign chairman was sentenced last March to a total of 7½ years in prison.

    The sentence includes nearly 3½ years in prison on charges that he misled the U.S. government about his foreign lobbying work and encouraged witnesses to lie on his behalf.

    And in a Virginia court, Manafort was convicted on eight felonies related to tax- and bank-fraud charges for hiding foreign income from his work in Ukraine from the IRS, and later inflating his income on bank-loan applications. For those crimes, he was sentenced to 47 months in prison.

    New York prosecutors have also indicted Manafort on 16 other charges, including residential mortgage fraud, alleging Manafort and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars.

    Michael Flynn

    Trump's former national security adviser was among the first people in the president's inner circle to be charged by special counsel Robert Mueller, who was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

    Flynn lied to investigators about his conversations in December 2016 with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's then-ambassador in Washington, about U.S. sanctions that had been imposed on Moscow by Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.
    He later pleaded guilty and agreed to co-operate in the hopes of receiving a more lenient sentence. As part of that plea agreement, Flynn also admitted to submitting false statements to the government regarding his lobbying work with Bijan Rafiekian, also known as Bijan Kian, on behalf of Turkey. His sentencing has been delayed.

    Michael Cohen

    Trump's former lawyer was sentenced in December 2018 to three years in prison for crimes including campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.

    He had pleaded guilty to making false statements in 2017 to the Senate intelligence committee about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. He had also pleaded guilty in August to eight separate counts, including campaign finance violations that he said he carried out at the direction of Trump.
    At that time, Cohen said he secretly used shell companies to make payments of $150,000 US and $130,000, respectively, to silence former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film actor Stormy Daniels for the purpose of preventing scandals during Trump's 2016 campaign. The women have claimed they had affairs with Trump after the real estate mogul married his third wife, Melania.

    George Papadopoulos

    Trump's former foreign policy adviser was sentenced in September 2018 to 14 days in prison for lying to FBI agents about his interactions with Russian intermediaries during the 2016 presidential campaign.
    Papadopoulos had been a central figure in the Russia investigation dating back before Mueller's appointment as special counsel in May 2017. He was the first to plead guilty in Mueller's probe and was the first Trump campaign adviser to be sentenced.

    Rick Gates

    Gates, a former top adviser to Trump's election campaign, pleaded guilty in February 2018 to federal charges including conspiracy and making false statements.
    As part of the plea bargain, Gates agreed to testify against Manafort, his mentor. As the government's star witness in Manafort's financial fraud trial, he testified how, at the behest of his longtime boss, he helped conceal millions of dollars in foreign income and submitted fake mortgage and tax documents.

    He also testified for the government in Stone's trial. Gates has not yet been sentenced.
