We all knew it was coming and just remember – Trump is a fighter and will beat back these obstructionists.
The House Democrats just launched a wide-ranging probe into all things, President Trump.
From Fox News: House Democrats opened a huge new avenue Monday in their investigations into President Trump, with the chairman of the Judiciary Committee firing off document requests to dozens of figures from the president’s administration, family and business.
Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said Monday the committee served document requests to 81 agencies, entities and individuals, as part of a new probe into “alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump.”
In addition to the White House, Nadler is also seeking information from Trump family members, like Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Jared Kushner; from former administration figures like former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former national security adviser Mike Flynn, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former spokeswoman Hope Hicks; and from Trump campaign figures like Brad Parscale and Corey Lewandowski.
“Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms,” Nadler said in a statement. “Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee.”
The White House confirmed Monday it had received a letter from Nadler.
“The House Judiciary Committee’s letter has been received by the White House,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The Counsel’s Office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time.”
The requests come on the heels of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s dramatic House testimony last week in which he raised questions about the president’s personal finances, his charity and more even as he testified he had no evidence of collusion with Russia.
Nadler, who would oversee any impeachment proceedings against Trump, on Sunday first announced the document requests and said the goal of the probe was “to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power” within the Trump administration.
