The president has been putting his foot in his mouth since before he even announced his run for the presidency. From breaking the Emoluments Clause multiple times, to fraud, money laundering and more, the president is looking at prison time once these investigations come to a close.
Now, another larger investigation has begun at the hands of the House Judiciary Committee, according to AP:
“The House Judiciary Committee is launching a sweeping new probe of President Donald Trump, his White House, his campaign and his businesses. The panel is sending document requests to 81 people linked to the president and his associates.”
This is huge. We’ve watched the president in all his crooked ways for three years now, and it seems as though we may finally see him held accountable for his actions.
Associated Press continued:
“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler says the investigation will be focused on obstruction of justice, corruption and abuses of power. The aggressive, broad investigation could set the stage for impeachment, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before taking drastic action.”
The White House confirmed that it received a letter from the committee requesting documents from dozens of different people. Democrats have been paying close attention to the president since day one:
“A top House Democrat says it’s “very clear” President Donald Trump obstructed justice. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House committee that would be in charge of impeachment says the panel is requesting documents Monday from more than 60 people from Trump’s administration, family and business as part of a rapidly expanding Russia investigation.”
“Nadler said the House Judiciary Committee wants to review documents from the Justice Department, the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg. Former White House chief of staff John Kelly and former White House counsel Don McGahn also are likely targets, he said.
Asked if he believed Trump obstructed justice, Nadler said, “Yes, I do.””
That pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?
