The chairman of the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee has fired off document requests to over 80 entities in President Trump’s administration, as well as his family and business, dramatically expanding their investigations. This, even after the FBI, multiple congressional committees, and probably the Mueller investigation all failed to find evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.
Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) announced on Monday that his committee served document requests to 81 agencies, entities, and individuals as part of its probe into “alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump.”
Nadler’s gambit comes after the House Intelligence Committee, led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), announced its own expanded probe into the president’s finances last month.
These hostile actions have spurred some Republicans to cry foul, including Washington attorney Joe diGenova [Pictured], who suggested today that Trump’s DOJ should not cooperate with Nadler’s abusive investigation.
“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,” Nadler said in a statement. “Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee.”
According to Fox News:
In addition to the White House, Nadler is seeking information from Trump family members, like Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Jared Kushner; from former administration figures like former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former national security adviser Mike Flynn, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former spokeswoman Hope Hicks; and from Trump campaign figures like Brad Parscale and Corey Lewandowski.
Also included on Nadler’s list of “threats to the rule of law” is likely the most investigated man in America, former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who says he’s been cooperating with various investigations for over two years.
“A lot of these same questions [in his document request] are the things that were already wiretapped and hacked off of my private emails going back to earlier in 2016,” Page told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Monday night. [Video below] He also confirmed that he spoke with members of Mueller’s team in November 2017 and hasn’t heard from them since.
Page told MacCallum that he may end up suing fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former DNI Director James Clapper, and others.
“I’m confident that as the information continues to come out there, it will be clear that there was a lot of wrongdoing — but wrongdoing on their side,” Page said.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical.
