House Dems Have Just Dropped The Hammer On Trump: ‘It Goes Beyond Russia’
Donald Trump has sunk into a deep hole and has no way of climbing out. On Wednesday, House Democrats announced that they will be conducting an “extensive and thorough” investigation, not only into Trump’s deals with the Russian government but into his financial interests as well.
CNN’s Manu Raju described on Wednesday that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) promised a “broad investigation into financial interests that may be driving the president’s decision making.”
According to Raju, this probe would not just be limited to the House Intelligence Committee, which Schiff now chairs, but would also “encompass several House committees.”
But it doesn’t stop there. The investigations will not be limited to whether Trump colluded with the Russian government to win the presidential election in 2016.
“It will go beyond Russia and Saudi Arabia,” Raju said. “He made very clear it is going to be an expansive and thorough probe.”
“If the president was hoping for less congressional investigations, House Democrats are answering with a resounding, ‘No,’” quipped CNN’s Kate Bolduan.
On Tuesday night, during his State of the Union address, Trump called on House Democrats to stop investigating him. Seems like they didn’t listen.
