House panel launches sweeping probe of Trump

"Congress must provide a check on abuses of power", House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement on Monday. Lastly, Collins commented on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's newest anti-sematic remarks on Israel.

The Judiciary Committee's requests are particularly noteworthy because it is responsible for originating articles of impeachment against the president, though Nadler has said he is merely launching an investigation and will see where the facts lead. The chairman reiterated the request last week after a bombshell report from the New York Times revealed that president Trump overruled the concerns of the Central Intelligence Agency to give Kushner, his son-in-law, a security clearance.

Nadler's statements come as other Democratic committees have also indicated they are investigating Trump on multiple fronts.

"According to media reports, President Trump, on multiple occasions, appears to have taken steps to hide details of his communications with President Putin from other administration officials, Congress and the American people", the chairmen of the three committees said in their letter to Mulvaney. He said there would be more requests, which might involve additional people. "She's not on the initial list, that's all we can say", Nadler said of Ivanka Trump.

"I think Congressman Nadler chose to impeach the president the day the president won the election", McCarthy said.

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

The White House has insisted that voters don't care about the president's taxes, and that the issue was settled in the 2016 election.

More fast food at the White House
President Donald Trump is at it again, rolling out the best in fast food for the best players on the football field. Trump described the chain food, piled before them in paper boxes and wrappers, as "all American".

Comey was leading an investigation into Russian Federation activities in the 2016 United States presidential election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign when the president fired him in May 2017. And there's no link to Trump or the campaign.

"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", Nadler said.

He also pointed out that in the indictments to date, including of Russian hackers and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, there was "no link to Trump or the campaign". He said that Trump's former long-time personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in his lengthy public testimony to Congress last week, "directly implicated the president in - in various crimes, both while seeking the office of president and while in the White House".

Mark Zaid runs a national security-focused law firm in Washington, D.C. In an email, he explained that such wide-ranging inquiries are actually nothing new for presidential administrations.

"I cooperate all the time with everybody, and you know the handsome thing: no collusion; it's all a hoax", he stated.

Nadler has also asked American Media Inc., and its CEO, David Pecker, a longtime Trump ally, about the hush payments or "any payment" made by former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen to assist Trump during the campaign. "Nadler is setting the framework now that the Democrats are not to believe the Mueller report", he said.

Cohen's testimony offered a number of tantalizing leads about hush-money payments he made on behalf of the president in evasion of campaign finance laws, possible conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and the extent to which Trump was aware of illegal activity going on within his campaign.
