The White House’s top lawyer told the House Judiciary Committee chairman Wednesday that Congress has no right to a “do-over” of the special counsel’s investigation of President Trump and refused a broad demand for records and testimony from dozens of current and former White House staff.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter to committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) constitutes a sweeping rejection — not just of Nadler’s request for White House records, but of Congress’s standing to investigate Trump for possible obstruction of justice. In his letter, Cipollone repeated a claim the White House and Trump’s business have begun making: that Congress is not a law enforcement body and does not have a legitimate purpose to investigate the questions it is pursuing.

The article goes on to state the following:

But Cipollone stopped short of asserting executive privilege. Instead, he told Nadler he would consider a narrowed request if the chairman spells out the legislative purpose and legal support for the information he is seeking.

“Congressional investigations are intended to obtain information to aid in evaluating potential legislation, not to harass political opponents or to pursue an unauthorized ‘do-over’ of exhaustive law enforcement investigations conducted by the Department of Justice,” Cipollone wrote.

Cipollone said the release of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report now makes Congress’s questions moot. He stressed that probe was “exhaustive” — the product of 2,800 subpoenas, 500 executed search warrants and 500 witness interviews — and that the president supported the report’s full release “in the interest of transparency.”

      It didn’t end with what they wanted and now they’re running scared because they know what’s coming for them.

      This made my day. Finally someone is standing behind Trump. Can’t stand pompous ass Nadler and Schiff. I agree with Joanne, it’s about time they get what’s coming to them all.

    To Nadler, if he would get off his lazy buttocks and and go read it for yourself we wouldn’t be going through this again. But no he has to make an A** out of himself. The democrats are still in denial

      They never will be. Can you imagine what’s going to happen with them when President Trump wins the 2020 election, will be worse then it was in 16, unless perhaps they all get locked up. Then it will be their followers. Can’t get a break from them for nothing.

    How can Americans take these idiots seriously in 2020. I understand that Obama was obstructed during his presidency but they have gone so far overboard that even their own party is turning against them. I’m guessing that Trumps DOJ has some serious evidence on many of the major players in the Dem Party. I’m sure there are plenty of Republican swamp rats that will be flushed as well.
