House Dems Are Coming for Trump

Since Donald Trump was installed as president, House Democrats including Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Elijah Cummings, Eric Swalwell, and others have promised to investigate Trump's finances for evidence of Russian collusion and other corruption.

Now that the Democrats have the House majority, and subpoena power as a result, they're plowing full steam ahead.

Yesterday on Face the Nation, Adam Schiff, chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said: "We are certainly looking deep into the set of issues around Moscow Trump Tower. We're also looking at persistent allegations that the Russians have been laundering money through the Trump Organization. I don't know that that's true. But if it is, again, it's a profound compromise of this president. ...There are any number of witnesses that can shed light on whether America's national security is compromised because the president has been pursuing financial interests with the Russians."

Today, Jerry Nadler, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said his committee is "requesting documents Monday from more than 60 people from Trump's administration, family, and business as part of a rapidly expanding Russia investigation."
"We are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption, and into obstruction of justice," Nadler said. "We will do everything we can to get that evidence."

Asked if he believed Trump obstructed justice, Nadler said, "Yes, I do."

..."It's very clear that the president obstructed justice," Nadler said.
Get him.

And save some of that scrutinizing energy for the reprobate occupying the vice president's office, too.
