House Judiciary Committee Launches Investigation Into President Trump And His Inner Circle

No games! On Monday, the House Judiciary Committee launched a sweeping investigation of President Trump and his inner circle. The panel sent document requests to a total of 81 individuals and entities related to the president and allegations of possible misconduct. They were given a deadline of March 18 to respond.

It was also said that the president’s business, charity, campaign, inaugural committee and family are among those to receive document requests. The committee told reporters that the investigation will focus on three primary issues: allegations of obstruction of justice, public corruption and other abuses of power.

Trump was asked whether he would cooperate with the committee’s request, he said, “I cooperate all the time with everybody.” He also reiterated his position that there was “no collusion. It’s all a hoax.” This comes just days after the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen testified at length about what Cohen described as Trump’s habitual criminal behavior.

The committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler of New York further explained,

“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,” the committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler of New York, said in a statement Monday. “Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee. We have seen the damage done to our democratic institutions in the two years that the Congress refused to conduct responsible oversight. Congress must provide a check on abuses of power. Equally, we must protect and respect the work of Special Counsel, but we cannot rely on others to do the investigative work for us,” The Daily Beast quotes.
