Jerry Nadler says it's clear Trump obstructed justice.


House Judiciary Committee Chairman Nadler, who would oversee any impeachment proceedings, said Sunday he will send more than 60 document requests to the White House and Justice Department. 
"It's very clear that the president obstructed justice," Nadler told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos. 



Move over Mueller.
House Democrats have officially begun their witch hunt campaign to investigate anything and everything Trump with the 2020 elections only being just over a year away.
They started today by sending the White House over 80 letters demanding documents from Trump on everything but the kitchen sink.

WASHINGTON POST
 – House Democrats sent more than 80 letters Monday demanding documents from family members, business associates, political confidants and others with ties to President Trump, launching a sprawling probe into whether he and his administration have engaged in obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power.
The farthest-reaching request since Democrats took control of the House underscored lawmakers’ determination to hold Trump and those around him accountable for an array of controversies that have dogged the president during his first two years in office — and perhaps lay the grounds for impeachment.
Those receiving letters from the House Judiciary Committee include the president’s two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump; his son-in-law Jared Kushner; his former personal secretary Rhona Graff; Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization; and former top White House aides Hope Hicks, Sean Spicer and Stephen K. Bannon.
Other demands for documents are directed to institutions including the White House, Justice Department, Trump campaign, Trump transition team and Trump Organization.
Recipients have two weeks to comply with the requests. Should they fail to do so, the panel will subpoena the documents, Judiciary staff told reporters on a call Monday morning.
The demands, made by Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), cover communications between former White House counsel Donald McGahn and the president relating to Trump’s fired national security adviser, Michel Flynn, as well as Flynn’s statements to the FBI about contacts with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Nadler is also seeking to learn about communications regarding Trump’s firing of former FBI director James B. Comey, as well as what occurred at a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. That meeting included Trump Jr., Kushner, Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who had “dirt” to offer about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to an email made public.
Nadler has also asked American Media Inc., and its CEO, David Pecker, a longtime Trump ally, about the hush payments or “any payment” made by former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen to assist Trump during the campaign.
The White House has acknowledged the letters…
In a statement Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders acknowledged receipt of Nadler’s letter to the White House and said officials “will review it and respond at the appropriate time.” She did not comment further.
This president has been investigated from the day he got into office and hasn’t been found to have done anything wrong or illegal. Instead of acknowledging Trump’s innocence and letting him be the president the country voted for, they are amping up the investigations in hopes of uncovering enough dirt to impeach him, or at least keep him from winning the 2020 election.
It’s really despicable. Especially when you consider that for 8 years all we heard was that Republicans were racist for legitimately criticizing the first black president.
But Democrats risk making the president look like a victim in their new political quest to impeach him, which could easily backfire on them in 2020. Of course they are counting on their hope that Trump will be so disliked that no one will care. But I think, given how much he’s already been investigated, that it’s far more likely to backfire on them next year.
