Pat Cipollone, White House counsel, sent an official letter to Jerrold Nadler, House Judiciary Committee Chairman, saying White House would not cooperate.
Cipollone claimed that efforts to investigate President Trump over again after the Mueller probe is finished are just a “show trial.” He said that committee is not in the right “to harass political opponents” and start an “unauthorized ‘do-over’” of the now-completed investigation.
According to the White House, whatever Nadler wants to investigate has already been the subject of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-months’ probe. As Mueller found no evidence proving the collusion and Attorney General William Barr concluded there was no obstruction of justice by the President, it’s time to “move on.”
Nadler claimed Trump wants “to make himself king.” White House official commented on the statement saying, “The president is not acting in imperial fashion. It seems to me that Congress, particularly House Democrats … are acting imperiously by setting out demands
that they know they have no right to.”
“ This investigation that Chairman Nadler thinks he’s somehow going to replicate has been done and done thoroughly,” he continued. “The trouble is that the chairman doesn’t like the results.”
