Trump has a certain Forrest Gump appeal that must pull at the heartstrings of nearly half the country because he is the looniest clown we’ve ever seen in the White House. Like ever! Monday morning, the House Judiciary Committee announced a broad investigation of Trump’s life of crime, and now, Trump himself is speaking out about it. You guess it, according to the president, the new investigation is yet another hoax.
This is what Trump said when asked if he would cooperate with the probe:
“I cooperate all the time with everybody.”
Trump said this on during a meeting with the North Dakota State University’s championship football team:
“You know the beautiful thing — no collusion. It’s all a hoax.”
Problem is, this investigation goes much further than Russian collusion, and he knows it. Trump either knows he’s screwed and is just seeing how far he can take it, or he really thinks that having a 46% approval rating will keep him form going to federal prison.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who announced the investigation Monday, had this to say:
“President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms. Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee.”
Nadler is requesting documents from dozens of people associated with Trump, including Jared Kushner, Hope Kicks, Mike Flynn, and Don McGahn.
