Dems Continue Their Assault on The Trump Administration By Launching Another Probe

Democrats are desperate to take down President Donald Trump. The Russia probe has proven to be ineffective and, quite frankly, a waste of time and taxpayer money. They didn't find what they wanted so now they're launching another probe.

During an interview with ABC's "This Week," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said the Committee plans to request documents from more than 60 people at the White House and Trump Organization. The reason? They want to "protect the rule of law," USA Today reported.

"It’s our job to protect the rule of law. That’s our core function. And to do that we are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption and into obstruction of justice," Nadler said. 

Nadler said it's "very clear" Trump obstructed justice based on his attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

"The White House seems to have used its power for personal enrichment in violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution," Nadler said. "We don’t have the facts yet, but we’re going to initiate proper investigations. Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen."

The Committee is especially interested in hearing from Donald Trump Jr. and Adam Weisselberg, the chief financial officer for the Trump Organization, and plans to release the full list of names on Monday.

Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attacked Nadler's plans, Reuters reported.

"They're setting a whole new course because there's no collusion so they want to build something else," McCarthy said during an interview with ABC News.

Trump took to Twitter to remind the public that the probe is nothing more than a "witch hunt."
