Trump on Dems' extensive probe of his life: 'It's a disgrace'

The probe was launched amid expectations in the U.S. that the long-awaited report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was tasked with investigating rumors of the Trump campaign's collusion with Russian Federation, would come out without serious evidence against the president.

The announcement of the new investigation follows a bad political week for Trump.

The document request from the oversight panel comes amid questions about the Trump administration's truthfulness regarding how senior adviser Jared Kushner got his high-level security clearance after career security officials recommended against it.

The refusal to provide the documents increases the likelihood that House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings will issue a subpoena for the information.

"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", he said. "Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee".

"I cooperate all the time with everybody", he said at a White House event. He later hardened his reaction, tweeting earlier that any effort by the Democrats to probe new avenues of possible wrongdoing "will never work".

The war between the two began in the 1980s, when Nadler represented the affluent Upper West Side of Manhattan in the state legislature and opposed a huge development by Trump that would transform the historic district.

As of this writing, Mueller has charged 34 people and secured guilty pleas from six Trump associates or advisers, including Manafort, former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, longtime Trump associate and informal adviser Roger Stone and former campaign aide George Papadopoulos.

The White House is criticizing a sweeping House probe of President Donald Trump and his administration, calling it "a disgraceful and abusive investigation into exhausted, false allegations".

The last big investigation involving a US president - the Ken Starr probe into the Whitewater scandal and former President Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky - differed in that it was carried out by an independent counsel, which unlike a special counsel is not part of the Justice Department.

Congressional investigations of Russian election interference remain ongoing, as does an inquiry by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is also examining whether Trump sought to obstruct his investigation.

Cohen received a request from the panel, as did American Media Inc., the National Enquirer's parent company, and its CEO David Pecker.

In a request sent to the White House, the committee asks for information surrounding former FBI Director James Comey's termination, communications with Justice Department officials, the Trump Tower meeting and multiple other matters.

There is evidence that some people in Trump's orbit were discussing a possible email dump from WikiLeaks before it occurred.

But Democratic congressional leaders including Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been reticent about pushing for the president's impeachment.

"She's not on the initial list", Nadler, who was careful with his language throughout the interview, said when asked about the First Daughter.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has indicated time and again that he is nowhere near beginning an impeachment process against President Donald Trump, a process that would unfold in his committee.
