WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Trump is taking on congressional Democrats.
He said he and his administration will fight on all fronts against their investigations.
This includes the subpoena of former White House Counsel Don Mcgahn who was quoted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report more than 150 times.
President Trump calls the investigations “nonsense,” but Democrats say they have a constitutional duty to provide oversight of the executive branch.
There is a growing list of Democrats calling for an impeachment of the president, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders are being more cautious.
“I am going by the leadership of Mrs. Pelosi,” House Oversight Committee Chairman, Elijah Cummings, said. “She has asked that we do our investigations and then make a determination as to where we go from there.”
“I thought after two years we’d be finished with it,” Trump said. “No, now the House goes and starts subpoenaing – they want to know every deal I’ve ever done.”
On Monday, the president filed a lawsuit against Cummings after his committee issued a subpoena for the president’s former accounting firm, seeking years of financial information on the president and his businesses.
