House Democrat predicts request for Trump tax returns in two weeks

Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against Donald Trump tossed out of court

The Washington Times detailed some of the targets of the Judiciary Committee's investigation: "Among the targets are the White House, the president's children, figures from the 2016 campaign, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and the president's business empire".

Trump's lawyers - including Jay Sekulow, Rudy Giuliani and Joanna Hendon - dismissed the idea of a pardon at the time, the sources said, according to the Journal.

The request is the most serious overt ramp-up of investigations into Trump since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in early January, and seeks to uncover whether Trump or his administration participated in obstruction of justice or public corruption - potentially impeachable offenses.

Rep. Richard Neal, the only Democrat on Capitol Hill who can formally request Trump's tax returns using IRS rules, said Tuesday evening that he is not clear on when he will request President Donald Trump's tax returns and that Neal will do it only after his committee has built his case in seeking them.

Democrats want to know whether Trump sought to illegally obstruct the Justice Department's investigation into possible collusion with Russian Federation. After all, the Judiciary Committee is where impeachment proceedings would begin.

Their first major action is to send document requests to 81 people linked to Trump and his associates. "Mr Trump has been lashing out over Democrats" probes. "It's all a hoax", Trump said at the White House, while hosting the 2018 Division I Football Championship Subdivision champion North Dakota State University Bison.

Nadler told ABC on Sunday that Kelly also could be included.

The announcement of the committee's probe comes just ahead of the much-anticipated conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation.

Mueller is investigating Russian intervention in the 2016 election and whether Trump's campaign conspired with Russia.

Much remains uncertain - do Democrats try to get Trump's personal taxes and taxes for his various businesses, for instance - but what is clear is that the newly installed majority party in the House has no plans to back down from what will nearly certainly be one of the most pitched fights of the second half of Trump's first term.

The probe will try to ascertain, among other things, whether Trump obstructed justice by removing perceived enemies in the Justice Department such as ex-FBI Director James Comey. Numerous people the committee is seeking documents from have already cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller or other investigations related to the President.

While Cobb believes Speaker Nancy Pelosi is too politically calculating to ever let the Democratic caucus move to impeach Trump, the investigations will go on and on.

Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, a White House senior adviser, was not on the Judiciary panel's list.

Undeniably, Mueller's report is poised to make numerous allegations, at the very least about the president having been involved in obstruction of justice and other possible criminal behavior. The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.

Some Trump allies say NY poses the biggest risk of boring into his family finances, a "red line" the president has warned prosecutors not to cross.
