US Democratic Lawmakers Launch Investigation Into Trump

Michael Cohen sues Trump Org alleging unpaid legal fees

He said Democrats in the House are searching for wrongdoing by the President rather than pursuing a legislative agenda.

In the high-profile probe that has riveted the nation, Mueller is looking into whether Trump's 2016 campaign coordinated with Russian agents to rig the election and whether Trump sought to block the investigation.

"All the people on the list have given information already", Nadler said, either to Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election or to federal prosecutors for the Southern District of NY in their corruption probe.

He pleaded guilty last year to lying to Congress, campaign finance violations and other charges and is set to begin a three-year prison sentence in May.

According to Politico's Darren Samuelson and Andrew Desiderio, a senior Committee lawyer said: "the document request was put together with sign-off from prosecutors in Mueller's office and the Southern District of NY".

All of them received requests asking for any documentation related to the meeting - materials they have all already turned over to the House and Senate intelligence committees, which have both been probing the meeting for nearly two years.

The unusually strong statement further claimed that "the Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the president".

It is so ironic now to think back to 2016 and remember Trump's admonishment on the campaign trail that if we elected Hillary Clinton she would be under constant criminal investigation to the detriment of the country.

The committee requested information from two of Trump's children, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, who are running the Trump Organization while their father is in the White House. But in a rare on-the-record statement, the special counsel's office said the BuzzFeed story was "not accurate".

Almost all the current and former administration officials, friends and family listed on the request have hired private attorneys to navigate both the Mueller probe and now the oversight process - among them Hope Hicks, Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Kushner and Don McGahn.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer briefs members of the media during a daily briefing at the White House July 17, 2017, in Washington, DC. The committee asked McGahn for any documents related to any discussion involving President Trump regarding the possibility of firing Mueller around June of 2017 "or any conversation in which President Trump stated, in words or substance, that he wanted the Mueller investigation shut down, restrained or otherwise limited in or around December 2017".

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has given House investigators new documents relating to his bombshell testimony last week, CNN reports.

The list of document requests also includes the National Rifle Association and Trump's embattled charitable foundation, which he is shutting down after agreeing to a court-supervised process. The committee said there might be additional requests.

Spicer did not say whether he had received his letter from the Judiciary Committee yet, but he said he had learned he was on the committee's list through news reports.

The committee was expected to discuss the subject in Cohen's second day before the committee, according to one of the people familiar with the meeting.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler told CNN on Monday that the objective of the investigation is to follow through on oversight that he says Congress neglected in the first two years of Trump's presidency.
