House Oversight Committee, White House in standoff over viewing security documents

Michael Cohen sues Trump Org alleging unpaid legal fees

He branded the decision by the House Judiciary Committee to look into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power by the White House as "the greatest overreach" in American history and said the Democrats behind it are the ones committing the actual crime.

"We are doing our due diligence", Neal said.

Nadler said in most of the letters that he was limiting the requests to documents that had already been provided to other investigators, an attempt to receive as much as possible in the two-week timeline. Cobb offered these wise words for Trump as to when the investigations of his administration will come to an end: "It's never gonna be over". To get to the point where those articles are written and approved by a Judiciary Committee majority (of Democrats and, ideally, constitutional-conservative Republicans), however, inquiries and investigations must proceed, hearings must be held, witnesses will nearly certainly have to be subpoenaed.

Eric Trump, one of the president's sons who helps lead the Trump Organisation, also spoke out about a document request he received from Nadler.

With Democrats in Congress launching a flurry of investigations into all-things-Donald J. Trump, it makes sense to wonder: Why all this hullabaloo?

In tweets earlier in the day, Trump said letters sent by the House Oversight Committee to 81 people and organisations associated with him were meant to "harass innocent people".

But Democratic congressional leaders, including Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have been reticent about pushing for the president's impeachment.

Two months after Democrats took control of the House, the Judiciary Committee is getting down to business.

8 killed in India-Pakistan fighting amid high tensions
Fighting resumed overnight into dawn Saturday, leaving two siblings and their mother dead in Indian-controlled Kashmir . We are at the mercy of these soldiers, " said Mohammed Akram, a resident in Mendhar area in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, responded to Cipollone that the security clearance system is broken and that the White House's challenge to the committee's authority lacks "just plain common-sense".

In a request sent to the White House, the committee asks for information surrounding former FBI Director James Comey's termination, communications with Justice Department officials, the Trump Tower meeting and multiple other matters.

Criminal inquiries into the Trump campaign's links to Russian Federation and other issues will carry on no matter what happens with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, as other prosecutors continue cases that began with him but now have a life of their own.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, meanwhile, is expected to deliver a potentially explosive report to the attorney general regarding his almost two-year probe into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 us presidential election and interactions between Trump's campaign associates and Russian officials.

In morning tweets yesterday, Mr Trump asserted that letters sent on Monday were meant to harass "innocent people" and were borne of frustration among Democrats for not being able to prove coordination between Mr Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election.

"This is a president who did not fight the special counsel in terms of evidentiary request", Cobb said. "I saw a certain person get up yesterday, the anger, the anger", he said, though it was unclear to whom he was referring.

Democrats hope that obtaining the returns will allow them to identify any conflicts of interest posed by Trump's global business empire.
