Fuck Trump. He can NOT be allowed to get away with this:
President Donald Trump is reportedly doing all he can to resist efforts by House Democrats to obtain documents and information relating to their multiple ongoing investigations into his administration and business dealings.
According to The Washington Post, both Trump’s personal attorneys and White House counsel Pat Cipollone are preparing the ground for a legal fight to block any subpoenas from the various House committees running investigations and will not turn anything over to Congress.
Trump is already not complying with information requests related to security clearances, meeting with foreign leaders, and other topics his team says are covered by executive privilege, the Post reported, citing aides familiar with White House discussions.
“They are fighting us on everything now, Representative Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, told the publication. “It’s an assault on the separation of powers and specifically the congressional oversight function.”
The White House did not respond immediately to Newsweek ‘s request for comment.
Since the Democrats won back control of the House in the midterms, the party has been hard at work investigating the president and those around him amid suspicions of wrongdoing. President Trump regards these investigations as an abuse of political power and without merit.
Six House committees are running sprawling investigations into Trump.
