House Democrats prepare to unload flurry of Trump investigations

Vladimir Putin

In an interview with Axios, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed that it is "very squarely within our responsibility to find out" if Trump's attacks targeting CNN and the Washington Post are an abuse of White House authority and power. Further, Democrats will likely seek information on the administration's family separation policy and relief efforts for Puerto Rico's Hurricane Maria.

Add to that dozens of other topics, including campaign-era payments to women who allege affairs with Mr. Trump, Russian involvement in the 2016 election and the appointment of non-Senate confirmed acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who Democrats already accuse of bias against the special counsel's investigation.

Activists from Sunrise Movement and Justice Democrats sit outside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office on Capitol Hill in Washington, Nov. 13, 2018.

"Mr. Whitaker needs to understand that he will be called to answer, and any role that he plays will be exposed to the public", he said.


The event marked Ocasio-Cortez's first visit to the soon-to-be Speaker's office, and leftists were pretty miffed that she introduced herself to her Democratic colleagues not by embracing inter-party collegiality, but by openly disagreeing with her party's long-time leadership.

"We are not scattershot". Add Democratic Party as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Democratic Party news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Trump has warned the Democrats against investigating him, saying: "If that happens, then we're going to do the same thing, and government would come to a halt, and we're going to blame them".
