Donald Trump says the House Judiciary Committee’s decision to mail out 81 documents is just ‘nonsense.’
Trump told the press, “Instead of doing so many things they should be doing, they want to play games…It’s too bad because I rather see them do legislation. We negotiate out legislation. We have so many things, actually things that we agree on, like infrastructure. But they want to focus on nonsense.”
Some of the individuals and or entities who are included on the House Judiciary Committee’s mailing list
includes Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Jared Kushner, the Trump Campaign, and the FBI.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) told ABC’s “this week”
host George Stephanopoulos that he believes Donald Trump “obstructed justice” and his committee is gathering the evidence to see if the president should be impeached. Nadler said to Stephanopoulos
, “We have to do the investigation to get all of this. We don’t have all of the evidence sorted out to do an impeachment.”
Trump has tweeted that the Democrats investigations into his business dealings amount to “presidential harassment.”
There are several investigations being conducted into any connections Donald Trump and his campaign had with Russia during the 2016 Presidential Campaign, his use of power as president to influence business deals, and possible tax fraud associated with the Trump Organization and Trump Foundation.
