House Democrats Launch Massive Trump Investigation, Demanding Info from 81 People

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump talk in the garden of the Metropole hotel during the second North Korea-U.S. summit in Hanoi Vietnam

This, even after the FBI, multiple congressional committees, and probably the Mueller investigation all failed to find evidence of collusion between Trump and Russian Federation.

The move all but guarantees that potentially damaging allegations will shadow the president for months to come as Democrats try to keep them in the public eye.

It reads like an article, actually many articles, of impeachment. "It's all a hoax".

It sent a request to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has been living in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London under a grant of asylum, seeking information relating to its alleged receipt of hacked Democratic emails from the Russian government as well as any contacts with members of the Trump campaign or Trump Organization during the 2016 campaign.

The president went off on the House Democrats for allegedly realizing the "only Collusion with Russia" was by "Crooked Hillary Clinton". Nadler is largely allowing the documents provided to the committee to be restricted to what has already been handed over in those investigations. In an email, he also noted how typical such requests are, while making sure to point out the atypical levels of crimes allegedly committed by Trump and others loyal to him.

Ultimately, it is important that the American people know the nature and extent of Russian involvement in our election, the nature and extent of complicity among the Trump campaign and others, and have a clear view of whether our election process was compromised. While the panel asked the two sons some questions that touch on their business, the document requests also include questions about events that happened in the White House after their father was elected, including the firing of FBI Director James Comey and discussions surrounding the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. "The (White House) Counsel's Office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time".

North Dakota State Was Also Served Fast Food at the White House
President Donald Trump received a No. 45 North Dakota State jersey . "Lots of hamburgers , lots of pizza". They're the latest championship team to visit Trump at the White House for a fast-food chow-down.

Flipping the table on the Democrats as they look to see if Trump obstructed justice, he claimed they are doing so in the "greatest overreach in the history of our Country".

The Republican senator from Kentucky said in a speech Saturday he "can't vote to give extra-Constitutional powers to the president".

The committee chairmen specifically asked to interview any staff who were at Trump's meetings with Putin at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7, 2017, and their summit meeting in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, 2018.

The House oversight committee, for instance, has set a Monday deadline for the White House to turn over documents related to security clearances after "The New York Times" reported that the president ordered officials to grant his son-in-law Jared Kushner's clearance over the objections of national security officials. The committee expects some people to produce right away, and others may eventually face subpoenas, the official said.

The committee told reporters on Monday that the investigation will focus on three primary topics, according to NPR: "whether the president obstructed justice by interfering with criminal investigations; potential corruption such as violation of campaign and financial reporting laws, as well as possible misuse of office for personal gain; and abuses of power to include misuse of the pardon power and attacks on the press, judiciary and law enforcement agencies".

In a statement Monday night, Sanders said: "Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of "Russia collusion" is crumbling".
