Trump Threatens Democrats With Prosecution If They ‘Leak’ Mueller’s Findings

Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to respond to any House Democratic efforts to investigate or release any information about him by saying he would counter with investigations “at the Senate level” in the wake of a midterm election that ensured the two chambers of Congress would be divided for the next two years.

“If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!” The president tweeted.

Democrats took back the majority in the House on Tuesday, while Republicans appear to have picked up at least three Senate seats, with others remaining too close to call.

The House majority gives Democrats subpoena and investigatory power, posing potential headaches for the White House. Top Democratic lawmakers have vowed to demand the president’s tax returns and investigate other aspects of his presidency if they regained the majority.

Trump has often floated investigating the opposing party. He has been vocally critical of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to properly look into what he believes are Democratic misdeeds and has questioned why special counsel Robert Mueller is not investigating Democrats.
