Even Trump critics like former Ohio Gov. John Kasich sense a sinister motive here. Kasich noted on CNN Tuesday that some of these investigations are legitimate, but ultimately, the Democrats’ purpose is to “weaken Donald Trump and make sure he doesn’t get re-elected.”
(Cortney O’Brien – Townhall) Democrats have not been shy about their priorities in this 116th Congress. The chairmen of some of the most powerful committees on the hill have begun the year by launching investigations into President Trump. They are going after his finances, his business dealings, his election win, and, of course, his relationship to Russia.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sent letters to 81 individuals and groups associated with Trump, demanding documents in his quest to discover if the president is guilty of obstruction of justice and other abuses of power. Those conclusions could potentially lead to impeachment.
“President Trump and his administration face wide-ranging allegations of misconduct that strike at the heart of our constitutional order,” the chairman urged.
But, ask Nadler for more explanation and he’ll insist, “this is not a pre-impeachment hearing.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a savage statement Monday night telling the chairman what she and the president think about his latest effort.
