US House committee seeks Trump corruption evidence

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler D-N.Y. questions Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as he appears before the House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington

This week, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., announced a sweeping investigation into President Donald Trump's administration, 2016 campaign, businesses, and the Trump Organization.

Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler's requests to Manafort and his public affairs consultant, Jason Maloni, could indicate Democrats on the committee believe there may have been back channel communications between the White House and Trump's former associates about presidential pardons.

Cobb, who also expressed support for the special counsel in an interview past year, said the investigation has been taking longer than he once thought due to "a lot of surprises", including the activities of former Trump associates Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Roger Stone.

They are demanding responses within two weeks.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House committee that would be in charge of impeachment says the panel is requesting documents Monday from more than 60 people from Trump's administration, family and business as part of a rapidly expanding Russian Federation investigation.

Regardless of the reliably partisan tendencies of congressional investigators, Judiciary Committee Republicans are calling foul.

Now that Democrats hold a majority in the House, the new probe is a sign that Mr Trump's legal and political peril is nowhere near over, even as Mr Mueller's Russian Federation investigation winds down. They are also asking whether Trump tried to hide any conversations.

Leading economists declared Trump's tariffs to be the most consequential trade experiment seen since the 1930 Smoot-Hawley tariffs blamed for worsening the Great Depression.

Congressional probes will look into some of Trump's closest business partners, including Allen Weisselberg, the CFO of the Trump Organization, his son Donald Trump Jr., as well as the Justice Department.

It reads like an article, actually many articles, of impeachment. "But, you know, he is a very direct, forceful presence. It's all a hoax".

Trump says these new investigations are coming because Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe isn't panning out. But the House probes go far beyond collusion.

The committee also said today's tranche of requests would not be the last, suggesting investigations by House Democrats could become broader still with time.

"Equally, we must protect and respect the work of special counsel [Robert] Mueller, but we can not rely on others to do the investigative work for us".

Most of the participants in a 2016 meeting in Trump Tower between Trump's campaign and a Russian lawyer received requests.

On Monday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the letter from the House Judiciary Committee chairman has been received.

The investigation appears to be focused on Trump's business dealings, possible collusion with Russian Federation, and obstruction of justice allegations. The panel is prepared to use its subpoena power if needed, the lawyer said.

The list of document requests also includes the National Rifle Association, Trump's embattled charitable foundation, which he is shutting down after agreeing to a court-supervised process, and officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department.

The letters are just the first step in what's likely to be a lengthy process as the committee probes a wide range of issues. In contrast, he said, Democrats' efforts to investigate the president would continue regardless of the evidence: "It's never going to be over", he said.

The request is the most serious overt ramp-up of investigations into Trump since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in early January, and seeks to uncover whether Trump or his administration have participated in obstruction of justice or public corruption - potentially impeachable offenses. "That's what we can say".
