House panel to take formal steps on impeachment probe next week

Jerry Nadler in Congress

In a September 5 letter to Trump's chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, Cummings wrote that Pence's stay at the Trump property in Doonbeg-"180 miles away from the Vice President's official meetings" in Dublin-warranted greater scrutiny. "President Trump stayed at his property in Doonbeg in June, which cost the American people an estimated $3.6 million".

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said that his panel "does not believe that USA taxpayer funds should be used to personally enrich President Trump, his family, and his companies".

"Though the language of the resolution is still in flux, some sources said it could incorporate elements of traditional impeachment probes, such as offering access to the president's attorneys or providing for more time to question witnesses", Politico reported.

"You know that we focused quite a bit on the Mueller report, even having Robert Mueller before us", said Rep. Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania, a Judiciary Committee member.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed the Democratic investigators, calling Trump's properties "a cesspool of corruption" and a "black hole for taxpayers' money".

"We have six committees working on followings the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest, that the president may have engaged in". "We must get America focused on the ongoing violations against basic constitutional principles".

Sources told CNN on Friday that the resolution is expected to spell out that Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, has the authority to call hearings at either the full committee or subcommittee level in connection with its impeachment deliberations. The Democrats also sent letters to the White House and Secret Service about Trump's suggestion earlier this month that his Miami-area golf course host next year's Group of Seven summit with foreign leaders. More subpoenas are likely. Under the microscope: allegations that Trump has improperly mixed his business interests with his role as president, dangled pardons to encourage official misconduct and paid money during the 2016 campaign to silence women claiming to have had affairs with him. In an interview Friday, Schiff said his panel will continue on that track this fall, including Trump's business links to the Persian Gulf region and his efforts before the 2016 election toward building a tower in Moscow.

Several other 2020 hopefuls, including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders, have said they support impeachment. "This is a guy who promised to drain the swamp". Democrats have argued that Congress must approve such transactions between foreign governments and a president's personal businesses. Nadler said in his letter to the White House that the panel was asking for the documents as part of its impeachment probe.
