The now democrat controlled House Judiciary Committee opened a whole new investigation this week into President Donald Trump and his “associates.” The committee is requesting documents from 81 “agencies, entities, and individuals” connected to the administration and President Trump’s private businesses.
As reported by William Cummings of USA TODAY, ‘“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,’ House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said in a statement announcing the investigation ‘into the alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration.’”
“Those issued document requests included names connected to the Trump Organization, the Trump campaign and the White House.”
Wait…, what happened to the Mueller report?
What happened to the anticipation and expectation of Robert Mueller crucifying President Trump and his entire family?
What happened to the liberals’ vision of President Trump being “perp walked” into jail?
Apparently these democrats know something (something we’ve known from the beginning).
Apparently they know that Mueller’s report is going to confirm the “witch hunt” that has been going on for two years.
Apparently they know that Mueller’s report is going to be a whole lot of nothing.
And now they want to try and continue to drive the false narrative of some kind of, any kind of, wrong doing by President Trump and anyone he’s ever come in contact with.
I would like to add that these democrats should be careful because they are setting a dangerous precedent regarding their version of “investigations gone wild!”
“Among the names were both of Trump’s adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump; Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner; the Trump trust; Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer; former national security adviser Michael Flynn; longtime Trump associate Roger Stone; former White House adviser Steve Bannon; WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange; former White House press secretary Sean Spicer; former White House communications director Hope Hicks; the National Rifle Association and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
I didn’t notice Ivanka’s name? Some “swamp dweller” is going to be in trouble for leaving her off of the list!
“The House Intelligence Committee has already announced a separate probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump’s foreign financial interests.”
Again…, what happened to the Mueller report?
What happened to all of that talk about Mueller “bringing the evil Donald Trump to justice?”
What happened to all of this “overwhelming evidence of Russian collusion” talk?
On Sunday, that committee’s chairman, the ever reprehensible, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told ABC’s “This Week” that he plans to investigate “allegations that the Russians have been laundering money through the Trump Organization.”
Again…, what happened to the Mueller report?
The Special Counsel has a more wide ranging authority in these types of investigations than Congress has. What makes Schiff think he’ll be able to uncover things that Mueller hasn’t?
The answer is Schiff doesn’t think that.
The answer is Schiff knows he is just continuing the harassment of The President and his family without any real justification.
And the “biased, liberal, fake news, propaganda media” are more than happy to cooperate with Mr. Schiff and Mr. Nadler.
Regarding all of this, President Trump tweeted, “After more than two years of Presidential Harassment, the only things that have been proven is that Democrats and others broke the law.”
“I am an innocent man being persecuted by some very bad, conflicted & corrupt people in a Witch Hunt that is illegal & should never have been allowed to start – And only because I won the Election! Despite this, great success!” The President said.
“Presidential Harassment by “crazed” Democrats at the highest level in the history of our Country. Likewise, the most vicious and corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure – Yet the most successful first two years for any President.”

Cummings added, “He [President Trump] also criticized ‘ridiculous partisan investigations’ during his recent State of the Union address.”
“Schiff and Nadler have both publicly expressed their belief that Trump is guilty of several crimes, but both have also said they are waiting to see the conclusions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation before calling for the president’s impeachment.”
‘“It’s very clear that the president obstructed justice,” Nadler said Sunday on ‘This Week.’ But he cautioned that ‘impeachment is a long way down the road.’”
Ya, it’s as clear as mud.
Both Schiff and Nadler claim obstruction of justice “is clear,” that Russian collusion “is clear,” and that they even have evidence, but this evidence never materializes and their claims seem to evaporate like a puddle on the sidewalk on a warm summer day.
“We don’t have the facts yet, but we’re going to initiate proper investigations,” he said. “Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen.”
Wow! Something truthful can come out of their mouths! They don’t have any facts yet, and the truth is they have no justification for even initiating an investigation.
“We have sent these document requests in order to begin building the public record,” Nadler said, adding that Mueller and federal prosecutors for the Southern District of New York “are aware that we are taking these steps.”
“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said that Nadler is starting fresh investigations because he does not believe Mueller will conclude there was collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign.”
‘“Congressman Nadler decided to impeach the president the day the president won the election,’ McCarthy said on ‘This Week.’”
Maybe The President and all of his friends should respond to Congress the way Hillary and all of her friends have: by ignoring congressional document requests and pleading “the fifth.”
According to Ben Shapiro of Breitbart News, “Hillary Clinton has a long history of hiding documents.”
“… the media have ignored Hillary Clinton’s obstructions and dissemblance for decades. Hillary Clinton has a long and inglorious history of alleged document tampering and questionable legal maneuverings.”
Here are some of her greatest hits of “thwarted record requests,” besides her most recent escapades of deleting over 33,000 subpoenaed emails, having the hard drive on her private server bleached, and smashing all of her and her staff’s devices with hammers:
“Clinton used her private email address to avoid turning over documents to Congressional committees investigating the Benghazi, Libya terror attack of September 11, 2012. According to the Times, ‘It was one of several instances in which records requests sent to the State Department, which had no access to Mrs. Clinton’s emails, came up empty.’ The State Department did the same routine with regard to a Freedom of Information Act request asking for correspondence between Hillary and former political hit man Sidney Blumenthal; in 2010, the AP said its FOIA requests had gone unanswered by the State Department on the same grounds; the same holds true with regard to FOIA requests from conservative group Citizens United.”
“Hillary’s First ‘Emailgate.’ According to Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, Hillary’s top woman, Cheryl Mills – you may remember her from Benghazi – “helped orchestrate the cover-up of a major scandal, often referred to as ‘Email-gate.’” Over the course of years, the Clinton Administration allegedly withheld some 1.8 million email communications from Judicial Watch’s attorneys, as well as federal investigators and Congress. Judicial Watch says that when a White House computer contractor attempted to reveal the emails, White House officials “instructed her to keep her mouth shut about the hidden e-mail or face dismissal and jail time.”
“Hillary’s Missing Whitewater Documents. In 1996, a special Senate Whitewater committee released a report from the FBI demonstrating that documents sought in the Whitewater investigation had been found in the personal Clinton quarters of the White House. The First Lady’s fingerprints were on them. The documents had gone mysteriously missing for two years. Mark Fabiani, special White House counsel, immediately stated that there was no problem, according to the Times: ‘He added that she had testified under oath that she had nothing to do with the documents during the two years they were missing and did not know how they ended up in the family quarters.’ Hillary remains the only First Lady in American history to be fingerprinted by the FBI. Those weren’t the only missing Whitewater documents later found in the Clinton White House. Rose Law billing records were found years after being sought ‘in the storage area in the third-floor private residence at the White House where unsolicited gifts to the President and First Lady are stored before being sorted and catalogued.’”
“Hillary’s Missing Travelgate Documents. In 1996, just before the Whitewater documents emerged – literally the day before – a two-year-old memo emerged, according to The New York Times, showing that Hillary ‘had played a far greater role in the dismissal of employees of the White House travel office than the Administration has acknowledged.’ Oops.”
“Hillary has a long history of this behavior. The media are less interested in governmental transparency than in picking the next president – and making sure the next president represents the hard, corrupt left.”
Just another example, in a long line of examples, of the double standards and the hypocrisy of the democrats and their partners in crime, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”
