White House Blasts Congressional Democrats Seeking Files From Trump Associates

Unapologetic Prosecutors say Paul Manafort lied to them

And he said the new investigation was born of Democrats' frustration with not being able to prove coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Democrats seized control of the US House in early January.

Like House Democrats, Mueller has also been exploring whether Trump sought to obstruct his investigation or others that have arisen from it.

Ex-White House lawyer Ty Cobb (left) has praised Robert Mueller and defended his long-running investigation.

Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, in explosive congressional testimony last week, implicated the president in illegal activities, including a scheme shortly before the 2016 election to pay hush money to two women who say they had affairs with Trump. 81 letter sent to innocent people to harass them.

"'[It's] the greatest overreach in the history of our country", he added. President Clinton was impeached for obstruction of justice.

In subsequent tweets, Mr Trump accused Democrats of conducting a "big, fat, fishing expedition" and wrote: "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!"

Evidence gathered in the probe would be the basis of a possible impeachment proceeding, though Nadler has said it is too soon to discuss impeachment.

Cobb does not believe Mueller's report will harm the president politically.

In addition, the committee is asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department for documents on possible pardons for Michael Cohen, the president's former personal lawyer.

Co-host Meghan McCan (pictured above right) admitted, "It's hard to tune into which investigation is going on" because "there's a lot of investigations going on".

"Personally I think he has", he replied, "but we have to, we have to look and see". "They didn't give a letter", he said.

But the extensive scope could bolster claims by Trump and Republicans that congressional Democrats are seeking to undermine the President and cripple his 2020 re-election effort rather than conduct a disciplined fact-finding inquiry. But the House probes go far beyond collusion. In an interview on ABC News' The View on February 8, Ivanka Trump said, "The President had no involvement pertaining to my clearance or my husband's clearance - zero".

At the public Cohen hearing last week, Oversight Committee ranking member Jim Jordan of OH invoked Steyer in his opening remarks to portray Democrats' investigations into the president's affairs as motivated by pressure from left-wing progressives. "It's like they threw the kitchen sink out there".

Nadler said in most of the letters that he was limiting the requests to documents that had already been provided to other investigators, an attempt to receive as much as possible in the two-week timeline. What is their platform? Under a little-known law passed in the 1920s, the chairman of the House Ways and Ways Means Committee can request any individual's tax return and the law says the secretary of the Treasury "shall" turn it over.

"And when in the hell is this compromise that they've got on [Trump], that he keeps coddling to this, you know, murderous dictator oligarch in Russian Federation?"
